THE TEAM BEHIND THE SCENES
OWNER | HEALTH COACH | FITNESS INSTRUCTOR | FUN HAVER
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.”
STUDIO MANAGER + INSTRUCTOR
Janiya has been a fitness addict since her elementary school days! Janiya has ran track and played basketball up until high school where she then started to be a Sales Associate for a local boutique fitness studio in her hometown. That’s where Janiya’s love for fitness peaked.
Janiya found the BOHO community in 2021 and has been involved with the brand ever since. Janiya wears many hats which are but not limited too: managing, instructing, organizing, and critical thinking. You can find Janiya taking classes or greeting members at the studio!
When Janiya is not at BOHO, you can likely find her traveling the world with her husky, reading a good book, or lifting something heavy!
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.
DESIGN AND PHOTOGRAPHY
The woman behind the camera 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.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Rachel's fitness career started at age 5 when she began playing soccer. She went on to swimming, tennis, track and field, and even horseback riding! Her motto, "Exercise is Medicine," became a driving force in her path during college, where she majored in Exercise Science and Nutrition.
A Richmond native, she loves making a difference in our city through health and fitness. When she's not sweating it out at BOHO, you can find her walking her dog through The Fan and enjoying and exploring this city she calls home.
