“My family is originally from Denmark, they lived in Canada for a few years while they waited for a visa to the USA,” she said. “I was born in Montreal Canada, however left at only 3 months old and come to San Jose California. It was the beaches that attracted my dad to Santa Cruz and we moved here when I was 6 years old. I attended our local schools; Brook Knoll Elementary, Scotts Valley Junior High, Harbor High and Cabrillo Junior College.”
Annette has spent the majority of her life dedicated to fitness and exercises and has tried most individual and team sports but enjoying dance aerobics and swimming the most.
In high school, she knew she wanted to work with people, guiding them through their issues and helping them succeed, so she planned on studying psychology to become a counselor, however, it was the nutrition class at Cabrillo that pieced it all together for her.
After earning a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics at UC Davis, Annette became a Nutrition Counselor for Women–Infant & Children (WIC) followed by a Dietary Technician at Woodland Memorial Hospital and Shriners Hospital in Sacramento.
“Purchasing Curves put all the pieces to my puzzle of life together,” Hunt said. “I can do what I love most: Empowering our community through exercise, healthy eating and a positive attitude.”
The machines use hydraulic resistance, making it possible to perform both strength training and cardiovascular training at the same time. By working the muscle groups that oppose each other you work muscles symmetrically which in turn aligns the muscular-skeletal system to improve functional posture and movement.
Annette’s studio offers an assortment of specialty classes such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Boxing, Cardio and our challenging ‘Not For Sissies’; these classes focus on areas like balance, flexibility and strength.
“We care about each of our members,” she said. “We coach all of members on a daily basis while they are on the circuit and stretching to help maximize their workout efficiently and safely. Each month we provide a coaching session to discuss achievable goals and help prioritize their health.
