Ann-Marie has always been athletic and interested in exercise, health and fitness. By the age of 12 she was lifting her brothers free weights and using the Universal Machine at the open high school gym during the summers… After her first year of college in 1983, Ann-Marie traveled to Australia for a year. Because of her dance background, she became one of the first Jazzercise/aerobic instructors, working for Australia's top female bodybuilder, Susy Martin. After graduating from Western Washington University she began working for Nautilis Nortwest as their marketing director. During her tenure with Nautilis Northwest she competed in women's bodybuilding competitions such as the Olympia Natural Classic and the Emerald Cup. Many of Ann-Marie's clients have worked with her since 1989. Ann-Marie loves training her clients and is passionate about the work she does! So much so she is in the process of expanding Ideal Exercise and licensing gyms outside of the Seattle area. In her spare time, Ann-Marie enjoys golfing, entering chili cook-offs, and is a true 12th Lady Seahawks fan!
