Meet Annie Tinker, Certified Knocked-Up Fitness® and Wellness Prenatal and Postnatal Instructor, Birth Doula and Certified Personal Trainer. Married to Carson and expecting her first baby this November!
“I started in the fitness industry as a personal trainer before getting into Prenatal training – I noticed a lack of options for my, then pregnant, sisters and needed to change that! I love helping moms stay fit and healthy even when they have little to no time.”
You can find Annie and other fitness professionals that have gone through my Prenatal and Postnatal Exercise Specialist Instructor Certification here. I had the pleasure of teaching Annie when I first was teaching my Pre/Postnatal course in Newport Beach, CA, and right away I could see her passion for prenatal fitness.
I’m excited to share that Annie will be joining me with my prenatal online membership, helping answer your questions in our private facebook group and adding some of her educational tutorials and exercises to add even more amazing content to what’s already there!

Erica: Favorite workout and favorite exercises to do when traveling (no equipment needed)?
Annie: Tricep dips off a chair and squat/lunge combo
