About Amanda

I am recently embarking on a part –time journey into the fitness industry. I have been a lifelong athlete and believer in the vital importance of embracing fitness and wellness into everyday life. My journey as an athlete began playing basketball growing up and in college.
After college, and struggling with some injuries, I had gained weight, and decided to change my life habits, which lead me on a journey of embracing fitness, health and wellness at the core of my life.
As a leader, I have the privilege to work with teams and individuals to assess them, and align them and support them to become their best selves to produce results, and these skills translate over into clients and the journey into fitness and health improvement.
My fitness journey did not end with weight loss (of 100+ lbs) , I have participated and have done a vast variety of different types of exercise programs and fitness adventures.

I have completed over 30 races, 2 full marathons, including Boston 2018, a 20 miles over night endurance race, 4 half marathons and a variety trail runs, 10k’s and 5k’s.
Within in racing and running, I developed a love for heavy lifting and started to work on powerlifting and recently fell into strongman lifting. I do a variety of functional fitness and hybrid training.
I recently won Strongest Female NY, qualifying to compete in United States StrongMan Associations Nationals in June 2019.
I enjoy alternating the heavy lifting and physical demands of endurance and strength with the softness and balance of yoga. I incorporate vinyasa and yin yoga into my routines to improve my breathing, my mind, my balance and flexibility and my mindfulness.
I am a firm believer in the mind over body philosophy. I am living proof, anything is possible with grit and determination. I love the ability to be so adaptive and dynamic with utilizing fitness to continue develop myself, and I have a deep passion in wanting to share my story, my knowledge, my experiences, and now my training and certification in assisting others to becoming their best selves in all aspects of their life, by starting and continuing with health, wellness through their own fitness journey. Being able to assist others, will not only help continue my motivation, but I hope they will develop their own stories and experiences of improvement and become passionate of the importance of wellness both mind and body.
