About Us

A WORD FROM OUR OWNER

After a competing alongside Olympic athletes in two sports – ice hockey and Olympic Weightlifting, owner, Caitlin Hogan, developed the systems behind the Annex’s program, realizing that health is a lifelong pursuit. A journey that one travels that is ever adapting and never perfected. We all have fluid goals that change throughout the years – sport, body composition, strength, etc. – but what training all boils down to is our ability to stay healthy, strong, and happy into our later years in life. Because this end goal is the same for all people walking in our doors, the Annex’s training is progressive, steady, challenging, and intelligent no matter the program. It aims to chip away at each body, regardless of  background and training experience, to mold it into a stronger, better performing, and more confident being. We are all Human Beings. We are all made of bone, tissue, muscles, water, and cells. We all sweat, we all bleed, we all grow old. The individuality of training comes into play in regards to your specific goals. The Annex’s system acknowledges these goals, assesses the individual’s current capacity in regards to said goals, and works to gain full control of this capacity, create more stable capacities, and expand on the current limits. This holds true for strength, mobility, skill, fat loss, muscle building, or simply just working out. The process is never perfected as movement is never perfected. The Annex is Movement Therapy. You’ll not only get stronger, more fit, and more confident but you’ll also feel better as a human being in real life outside the gym. This system is something special and I can’t wait to share it with you.     – Coach Caitlin

CORE VALUES

We are a team, no one is bigger than the team, and we aspire to be great together. Having a team oriented approach to all we do. Be humble and encourage human-connection, collaboration, and collective ownership to cultivate a safe environment of trust, respect, and family where no one is left behind. We are never too big to do the small things that need to be done. Doing it properly, so no one else has to. This holds true to our genuine self as well as the way we train. We truly listen while others are talking. Constantly seek opportunities to encourage and complement others. We are proud. We aree responsible. We are confident. We never make excuses. Never lose patience. We are all responsible for the way we affect those around us. We are good to ourselves and to others. No matter race, gender, sexual orientation, fitness level, status, or any other determining factor – all are treated with respect and genuine friendliness. We all go out of our way to welcome new members and openly invite them onto the team. We respect all people – our coaches, training partners, fellow gym members – the gym itself, the equipment within, the positive vibe, and above all else – yourself. This space is one where we are continually learning and teaching others what you learn. We are all students striving for excellence via accumulative learning and incremental improvement. We push beyond your comfort zones, training and learning, with intensity to accelerate personal growth in all areas. Not only do we strive for perfecting ourselves within the gym, we also live a life to give back to a cause bigger than ourselves connecting the past, present, and future as one.
