My favorite client story

My client Lauren comes to mind first. Lauren was planning her wedding. She also planned on losing 30 something pounds to fit into a gorgeous dress she fell in love with. There were highs and lows and previous shoulder and back issues. Everything trumped Lauren's dedication and the hug and tears her mom shed when she demanded to meet me the week of Lauren's wedding. Lauren surpassed her goal. Her determination and spirit is just one example of why I love what I do. Plain and simple, that's why I do what I do.

My favorite exercise

A squat curl press can change your body. You can modify the exercise for beginners or make it as challenging as you'd like for more difficulty. Plank exercises are also amazing because they singe the waist so you don’t bulk up, which can happen if you train the core wrong. In a plank, you work so many muscles at once; the core, arms, shoulders, back, glutes, and legs.

My favorite quote

I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. -Michael Jordan

My training philosophy

It's not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. So clear your mind and your vocabulary of can't because it's never too late to become who you might have been. Now is the time to become the best version of yourself. Motivation kick starts you and habits keeps you going. Lets do this safe, quickly, and laugh along the way. Otherwise, what's the point really?

My training experience

I've been training for over 16 years now.
I’m NASM certified.
I’m trained to focus on form so clients don’t get hurt or can heal from prior injuries properly.
I’ve trained in the best boxing and kick boxing gym, a celebrity only gym, Equinox, Soul Cycle, and branched out to work on my own.
I use all the tools I know, combining concepts from strength building, Pilates, yoga, hiit, Muay Thai, kettlebell, functional, agility, etc. I try to make it fun since I know most people don’t love working out.

I started my weight loss journey with Amanda in November of 2016 and I have already lost 4 dress sizes. She's very patient and very motivating. She has helped me set goals and achieve them. I never really enjoyed working out but Amanda has truly made me love it. I always look forward to our training sessions! She is so much fun and really does everything that she can to help you succeed. I highly recommend her!

Life changing. I've tried everything, and I've never been able to keep a gym routine going for more than a month. Amanda has been the best thing that's ever happened to me. I've lost 50lbs and more importantly, working out has never been more fun and rewarding. Thank you Amanda


I've been working with Amanda 3 times a week and I've seen amazing results. I had lower back problems and they are finally gone! That alone would've been great, but I've also gained more confidence and energy. My body is more porportioned as well. If you want someone who actually cares about your health specifically, give Amanda a try. Thanks again! :)


Wonderful trainer. Amanda is an incredibly responsive, kind, and intuitive trainer; I have a complex issue with my left knee, and she treats me with the utmost care and consideration. I deeply appreciate it.
