I am a fun, focused trainer than places science and indivduals goals/needs over that of "cool" movements. Cool is using your body to it's full functional abilities. Lifting heavy wil only lead to a leaner and SMALLER you. This is what I want for my clients. Strength and health, injury prevention, over risky movements. Sessions are focused but there's still room for personality. I will dial in on all your movements, where you foot is placed to posture, to how momentum is moving through your body. You will get fit but we'll do so in a way that always this to be a lifelong change rather than a fad. I tailor programs to your needs and your individualized goals. I've gone as far as buying gorceries with clients. Let's get in this together! It's going to be work, it's going to be individualized, it's going to be educated and focused, but we are also going to have fun.
As for me, I LOVE a strong, fit, confident woman. So I became her. And I work to help my clients become the "her," "him," or "they" they are envisioning for themselves inside and out. I'm constantly reading and learning more. I reach out to vets in the industry for guidance. There is a whole system behind your sucess not simply just our one hour together.

I cannot speak highly enough about Amanda and my experience training with her. Prior to working with her, I'd trained with at least 3 other experienced trainers over several years at both crunch and equinox and I'd never quite been able to maintain my progress or reach my goals. That changed when I met Amanda; we trained together for about a year and a half and the results I achieved were the truly most substantial and meaningful of my life. Amanda is knowledgeable, and she makes the information you need accessible/ understandable, and supports you in making gradual changes over time. She brings authentic warmth, humor and heart to training sessions, and a genuine investment to not just your fitness goals, but you as an individual. While I did win a fitness competition at the gym while working with her, that wasn't even the best part- in my time with her I lost over 40lbs that I have kept off because she helped me learn how to lead a healthier lifestyle that was both attainable and maintainable. Amanda changed my relationship with/ to exercise and fitness, and their broader connection to my overall health and well-being in life. I am so much happier, healthier and balanced from knowing her and training with her, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat. Give yourself the best gift you ever gave, and schedule a session with her. I promise you'll be glad you did.
I trained with Amanda for almost 18 months in 2017-2018, and in that time, she proved she really can do it all! When we started I was the heaviest I had ever been, battling constant stomach issues, and preparing for a movie role that would require me to be much slimmer. In less than three months, working out only two hours/week, Amanda helped me lose almost 25 pounds and eliminate over 30% of my body fat, which not only drastically improved my health, it successfully prepared me for my movie role. I was happy with my new, slim physique, but decided I wanted to gain some weight back (lean muscle this time), and Amanda again stepped up to the challenge. By the end of that year, I had reached my dream body weight while keeping my body fat % low. Amanda even helped me get more practiced at and tolerant of stretching, something I've loathed doing my whole life and something that has definitely improved my quality of life in a big way. Not only is Amanda extremely good at what she does, she is a wonderful person. She is invested in her clients success, both in and out of the gym, and always helps her clients on their terms. She will work well with any ability level, tailor nutrition recommendations to any diet, and always brings out the best in everyone she works with. I would highly recommend her to anyone of any fitness level.
I have been working with Amanda for over a year now. She has been great to work with, she is very adaptable to my crazy schedule and helps keep me going. She has been very adaptable with my workouts, recognizing and accommodating various conditions I have experienced over the last year including herniated disks thus helping me in a quicker recovery. This year we are focusing on long term weight loss and her nutritional knowledge coupled with our workouts is helping in this goal. She cares and pushes you to succeed.
I love Amanda! She is the best trainer ever! She knows the best workouts designed specifically for me to achieve the results I want . She helps me tone, flatten my stomach and give me the butt I have always wanted. She tells me what foods to eat and what to avoid to help me maintain the results I am looking for. She also gives me exercise plans to do when I am not with her. She keeps me motivated and is always guiding and helping me get the body I want. I am not one that loves to work out but Amanda makes it fun and when you see the results you can't help but to stay motivated to continue!
Amanda is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with! She is kind, caring, considerate but tough when necessary. Amanda not only cares about her clients when in the gym, but she also takes the time outside of the gym to develop client specific meal plans and check-in on progress. Not only did Amanda help me change the way I look physically but she also helped me transform mentally. She always takes the time to develop a physical fitness plan that helps you push to where your body needs to go that day and nothing more or less. She's responsive when you ask to either pull back or amp up the intensity. And best of all, Amanda holds you accountable for the changes you want to see. I've been working with Amanda for over a year and have seen such positive results. But more importantly, she's helped me transform my whole lifestyle into a more healthy and physically active lifestyle.
Worked out with Amanda over a period of several months. She was engaging, thoughtful of my age and some physical limitations and convinced me to stick with a workout regimen. Her ability to be firm but also very funny made getting healthy enjoyable. Would definitely work with Amanda if I would not have moved from the area.
