BOHO means so much more than workouts and sweating.

BOHO is about having fun, living a healthy and active lifestyle, and loving RVA.


We like moving and fitness.


We like challenges and pushing past limitations. Even the ones we didn’t know we had.


We like goofy, life is too short to be so serious.


We like learning. Ideas and information inspire us.


We believe in helping each other be better people, both physically and mentally.


We love a good sweat session, but we also realize that workouts are only half of the wellness equation. Being healthy starts on the inside with the food you use for fuel.

AnnMarie Grohs

AnnMarie ran her first 10k in college, and came in dead last, behind a team of 8 people carrying a Santa sleigh. Ever since then, she has challenged herself to do better, do more – and always strive for one goal: wellness. Oh, and, to never again be bested by a gaggle of people carrying a large prop.

AnnMarie’s journey to wellness and fitness has taken her many places – from her home state of Nebraska, to Chicago, where she learned to appreciate the outdoors when she could; then to D.C.  where she discovered the limits of, and ways to challenge, her body. Finally, she landed in Richmond where she learned the effect that food could have on her overall health. 


It all ultimately drove her to open BOHO Studios a group of fitness studios nestled in a few of RVA’s most amazing neighborhoods, Museum District, Brookland Park and Forest Hill. BOHO Studios focuses on cycle, HIIT, personal training, yoga and nutrition coaching. Today, AnnMarie continues to explore her commitment to wellness, keenly aware that wellness isn’t a fraction of life: it’s the whole of it.


“The most important thing is fun,” she says. “You’ve got to have fun - and know what does your body good: whether that’s a run, a salad, yoga, reading a book, or knowing what clothes look good on your body.”

Linnea gerwig

Linnea rolled into Richmond, VA in 2014 and stumbled upon BOHO Studios in a twist we can only thank fate for. It’s as though Linnea & BOHO Studios knew they were meant to be. She is our go-to when we need an extra head in the fitness game to develop our next big idea, the first person we call when that big thing comes up and we need a set of eyes, ideas, or hands to bring it to fruition.


When Linnea’s not brainstorming with the team you can find her strolling the streets of Church Hill with her fam, crushing it at CrossFit, or taste-testing for the world’s best tortilla chip.

Caroline Simmons

The woman behind the camera (and sometimes the front desk) at BOHO Studios, Caroline waltzed into BOHO Cycle Studio in Richmond VA, back in 2015 looking for some part-time fun. Little did she know it would turn into full-time, beyond fun, and a whole lot of pictures. She is a professional photographer and we are often amazed watching her work.


When she’s not capturing the smiles of Team BOHO or making the BOHO Studios brand come to life, she’s snapping photos of models all over the USA. She’s devoted to her craft, but once her work is done, you can be sure she’s snuggled up with her two adorable Italian Greyhound rescues.

sara-nelson steele

Sara has loved group fitness from the age of 5 while running around on the soccer field.  A torn ACL in high school caused her to go through months of physical therapy. Upon recovering from her injury, she realized she wanted a career in the fitness world in Richmond VA.


She found her true calling as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor after college and knocked on BOHO's door. Sara gets to share her joy of instructing and reaching so many people who love a great workout, whether it’s a cycle or HIIT class, yoga or personal training.
