She has received notable media attention for her success as a woman entrepreneur and for her business acumen, and was featured in The Washington Post, The Washington Business Journal and Runner’s World.
“I didn’t get to where I am without help and guidance from others, and I take my responsibility seriously to pass on my learnings and lessons to others,” said Mahlum. “BFS provides a supportive community for studio owners and fitness professionals to learn from one another and I’m thrilled to be able to share my insights as the Keynote Speaker.”
Anne’s keynote presentation will highlight her inspiring journey, capture lessons learned, and educate like-minded individuals within the fitness community.

“To create the strongest version of yourself, one must leave their comfort zone. [solidcore] was created in 2013 to help people leave that zone, a self-illusion, and take them to a place of transformation through physical and mental fortitude. In less than 6 years, we have opened close to 50 studios around the country and we have built a community that runs deep with authenticity, teamwork and perseverance…and abs of course, lots of abs,” said Anne Mahlum, CEO and Founder, [solidcore].
