Coach Anne Shubert: a small-town girl spending as much time as possible outside exploring the Pennsylvania Allegheny and Maryland Catoctin mountains she calls home. Anne is a This Naked Mind Certified Coach, RCCA certified running coach, retreat host, back-of-the-pack ultrarunner, long-distance backpacker, creative type, and gardener obsessed with her chocolate lab, Ollie and her koi-fish raising husband, Jim.
After reading This Naked Mind, using the Alcohol Experiment and the PATH Programs, Anne is enjoying alcohol free life since March 2021 and has since founded Step Into Self, LLC, where her mission is to normalize not drinking in the trail and ultrarunning communities.
“We put in hours and hours of training, eat well, take ice baths, take saunas, buy tons of gear, try all the things to tweak performance or improve endurance and then add alcohol,” says Coach Anne. “I help my clients dig in and take a look at how alcohol is serving them so they can move forward into a space where they can maximize their potential and reach their goals.”
With an emphasis on curiosity, science-based evidence, mindfulness, and connection, Anne supports her clients as they look at the role alcohol plays in their lives and how it serves them on their quest for a long, adventure-filled life.
Drawing on her own experience, Anne understands that going it alone is harder than it needs to be and is prepared to be your guide. Anne’s coaching style will gently help you see potential blind spots and safely track towards a place you’ve been struggling to get to on your own and set about tackling all the big things.
If you are looking for a modern, light-hearted and serious at the same time approach to rethinking your relationship with alcohol, you are in good hands with Coach Anne.
