"Thank you for all that you do for me!  Your encouragement, belief and efforts to help me are very much appreciated..." -Jacqueline


Unapolagetically irreverent and unconditionally loving, Annie Jelinek is a squashy-hearted bad-ass who loves Chuck Taylors and tattoos, and helping humans in pain learn to experience and live in freedom through strength and insight practices.

A Strong First Level II Kettlebell Coach, 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher and ZHealth Practitioner, Annie works with bodies and brains of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds to end physical  pain, develop strength and athletic potential, and heal disordered self-image and exercise addiction.

Annie taught in the Washington, DC and San Francisco Bay Areas before returning home to Madison, WI where she owns PULSE Kettlebells and Yoga, and believes that true wellness arises from a commitment to honoring the needs of the body and the mind as they arise. 

In recovery from chronic perfectionism and ED NOS, presenting with restriction, binge eating and exercise addiction, Annie speaks and blogs candidly about the connections between her recovery, yoga and strength path with both her clients and at public and private events.


“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”  - Pema Chodron
