Anne Casstevens

profilephoto01-001370000076ThRAAUI am a StrongFirst Elite instructor and team leader as well as an Iron Maiden. Having trained multiple places in the valley over the years, I decided to open my own space in 2017, STOUT Strength and Conditioning in Salt lake City. A place where people value strength as a skill and choose to use fitness as a means to better themselves and improve their quality of life. No ego, no competition just a supportive place to learn and work hard. Programming and training is done by me and you'll frequently hear the words "torso power". My programming is rooted in stability and strength of movement patterns, progressive but appropriate loads for those patterns and of course the right dose of cardio.

I've spent years training all sorts of folks, attending StrongFirst certifications and events and traveling around the country instructing courses. All of these experiences have shaped what I prioritize and value in the training I offer. In addition to small group and one on one training, I often meet with students for skill sessions preparing them for SF events. I will always be partial to in person training but I have grown to love connecting with students far away via online coaching. Please contact me with any local or distance coaching questions. I live for this stuff. I love what I do. My people are amazing. Strength has changed my life forever. I am because we are. StrongFirst.

Anne is, by far, one of the best strength and fitness coaches in Utah. Not only is she exceptionally knowledgeable of proper technique and methodology, she is a master of movement instruction. Anne is able to take complex exercises and break them down in terms understandable to anyone under her direction. She genuinely cares about her clients and their progress, as well as going the extra step to get to know them on a personal level. Anne's classes are informative, effective, and unexpectedly fun. As someone who has trained under a host of coaches at various gyms throughout the state, I would highly recommend Anne Casstevens to anyone looking to get stronger, fitter, and smarter about their training.

As an outdoor professional I rely on my body to stay healthy and strong. Anne is my MVP. Her skills and experience help me thrive during 180+ days of skiing every year. I couldn't keep up that pace without her.

Toni Allison, PT, DPT
Anne is the all-around best gym coach I've ever had. She's motivating (but not annoyingly in your face), super smart (all about that torso power), and creative in her workouts (keeps it fresh!). As a physical therapist, I send her patients that are graduating from PT because I know they are in knowledgeable hands with Anne and she will help them achieve all their fitness dreams. Just like she is helping me with mine!

Anne takes training to a whole new level. She's passionate about what she does and it shows. Her programming is thoughtful, intentional and most of all - effective. She listens to and takes the time to get to know everyone she coaches allowing her to customize her programming to the individuals ability level.
Anne stays up to date on all things StrongFirst, she attends, assists at and teaches lots of workshops, certs, courses and hosts events like the TSC.
To top it all off, Anne's just delightful to be around. She's totally down to earth. She's authentic, passionate, hilarious and kind. She's as real as they come!

I have been a student of Anne's for 4 years and knew that when she opened her own gym I had to follow her there. She is thoughtful with her programming and truly cares about good, quality movement and not just eeking out ugly reps (as we see in so many "crossfit" style gyms). She makes necessary modifications for all fitness and skill levels and will customize training for specific personal goals. I am at my strongest at 38 years old and will continue to improve my fitness level due to Anne's impeccable coaching. Personable, kind, funny, approachable and a true gem in the fitness industry. Highly recommended!

Anne is an amazing instructor. I always feel like her programming is well thought out and exactly what my body needs. There is depth of quality about her coaching that she is able to convey in simple straight forward ques. I have followed her from two other gyms until finally landing at a gym she owns. I would recommend, her coaching to anyone at any level hands down.

Margie Meyers
Anne is a stellar technique coach and programming guru. She points out those small adjustments that can be made in body position to make the workout perfect. She's also excellent at developing training programs that deliver results. I'll keep coming back to Anne.

Glenn Kemp
I have followed Anne through 4 gyms and for 5 years. Her programming is fun , challenging, and has helped me improve my strength and fitness to the best level in my life. She is also fun and her classes are a blast. She is a great inspiration.
