Annemarie Sampson

Chicago, IL 60614

I have been proudly serving the Chicagoland fitness community for 30 years. Manager of The Chicago Sweat Shop, one of Chicago's first aerobic studios, started my love for group exercise before opening my own gym Second Wind. 35 years later I am coaching High School cross country and growing food for at risk communities.
My greatest growth has taken place since partnering with so many other fitness professionals, it is incredible what can grow when we all collaborate helping people reach THEIR wellness goals.
Doing preventive wellness education online by partnering with the largest online shopping club in the U.S.A. has allowed my team to expand their reach across the country. The company we have partnered with is a 35 year U.S. manufacture specializing in everyday consumables. Our niche market is eco-friendly, non-toxic and affordable everyday consumables. We are a billion dollar debt free company that is an environmental leader in the industry.
Our team is growing and we are looking for professionals who are passionate about living healthy lifestyles and inspiring others.
We would love for you to come inspire with us.

    Ann Marie is an exceptional trainer. She has an incredible presence that is inspirational and motivational. Training with Ann Marie is a mind-body workout that reminds us the importance of being active and staying fit. Whatever your goals or aspirations, Ann Marie adjusts to YOU and focuses on your well being. I strongly endorse Ann Marie.

    I have been working out with Anne Marie for 17 years. In that time she has taken me from zero to triathlon competitor. She gives you the confidence you need to fulfill whatever your fitness goals are. Beyond that she is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. She is a true partner in your health and wellness and is always there when you need her. Often times I come to her with an ache or pain and she always figures it out and gives me the exercises to solve it.

    She is highly educated in both fitness, nutrition and physiology and brings them all together to help you holistically achieve better health.
    Not only is she a great trainer but you always feel as if you are working out with your best friend, someone who always has your back.
    Frankly, I don't think you could find a better trainer or person than Anne Marie.

    My husband and I have been working with Annemarie for about 15 years. She does an amazing job of customizing the workout to our individual goals which change all the time.
    During my racquet sports seasons she works on lateral movement and strengthening muscles that support the joints that are stressed during tennis and paddle tennis. When I took up golf she adapted to protect my hips. When I have any type of injury or soreness she works the session around my issue and is usually able to narrow down the possible causes and solutions.
    She is the most upbeat and positive person I know and that bleeds its way into our workouts. That helps me get through them because they are extremely challenging.
    All in all, I can't say enough good things about her. My husband agrees and so do our 2 kids age 18 and 23.

    I have been fortunate enough to have been working with Annemarie for approximately 8 years. She came highly recommended to me and I cannot say enough about her both professionally and personally. She is extremely knowledgable and approaches each session according to how I am feeling and what I am trying to accomplish with my workout that particular day. She continually challenges me in the most positive ways. She has also worked with my husband and my three children, who have all benefitted form her wealth of knowledge and kindness.

    I have been working out with Annemarie for the past 14 years. She is incredible! She adapts my workouts to how I am feeling, what I want to work on, and focuses on what other sports I want to improve on. She has worked out with every member of my family and has challenged them all in different ways. She is extremely professional and knowledgable.

    Annemarie continues to mix up my workouts so I am never bored. She makes working out FUN!!! But do not ask her to sing!!!
