I hope you’re ready to enjoy a dynamic podcast! Today I’m chatting with Annamaria Gould, who goes by Annie, about fitness, healthy living, and the big role cross training has played in her personal and professional life. In this episode, Annie shares some great advice about the importance of celebrating what your body can do – it’s a really great message!


Here are some key takeaways from my chat with Annie:

  •       Stepping out of your comfort zone and challenging yourself can prove to be life-changing.
  •       You can do anything you set your mind to. Accomplishing a goal is a matter of commitment: you can either keep reaching for your goal or you can turn back.
  •       Remember to be kind to yourself and your body, and remember that the only opinion that really matters is your own.


You can connect with Annie via her Pure Barre studio website and Instagram, and her personal Instagram



Annamaria Gould (most folks know her as Annie) was born in upstate New York, but grew up in Boise, Idaho and moved to the beautiful Low Country after college, where she played D1 in tennis at the University of Idaho. While in college, Annie joined the sorority Tri Delta, and graduated with a degree in Architecture and a minor in studio art. She used to be the creative director for a tech company and also taught painting classes at Wine and Design! In her free time, she loves spending time with family, working out (Pure Barre and bodybuilding), traveling, going to the beach, and painting. Physical activity has always been a part of her life, growing up as a competitive tennis player. After college, drifting between all different forms of group workouts, she finally found her home in Pure Barre about three years ago. Since then she’s grown from client to addict, to Barre tender, to teacher and now to owner. She has worked at Pure Barre Bluffton from the beginning and her love for her little studio is something she can’t put in words.
