Amy is really nice. She looks like Barbie and is always smiling (I mention this because the first time I met her I was skeptical--not expecting her to be so hard core....do not be fooled, her workouts will kill you)--she's kind of an expert at designing workouts that don't sound or look painful but are actually INSANELY CHALLENGING. She also has a really good sense of humor about things so I always feel good after training with her.
Amy was my favorite personal trainer and group instructor at CTF in Chicago. She was very creative, I always felt like an athlete when I was in her classes. She knew the exact things I was looking for in my PT sessions and a lot of the exercises I was able to do at home with little to no equipment. She is always upbeat and fun to work with. I learned a lot about proper stretching from her mobility classes. I highly recommend her for personal training and group classes.
I loved taking classes with Amy. She always pushed me to work a little harder without making me feel like I wasn't good enough. I found myself PR'ing in her class more than once. Amy knows what she's doing. On top of that, she's always working on improving herself as well, which is super impressive and inspiring as one of her students. She really lives by what she teaches, and you'll see that if you decide to train with her.
Amy always creates a safe space for us to push ourselves and test our limits. I hit THREE PRs today thanks to her encouragement!
Amy does a great job finding new and creative ways to keep you challenged.
