Training with Amy began with a desire to lose weight and get healthy. From there, she instilled in me a passion for working out which led to running my first of many 5Ks and a half-marathon.
Amy not only helped me get fit, she provided me with the knowledge and tools to gain personal insight through exercise while giving lots of motivation and support. Amy showed me how strong I am both mentally and physically, helping me to see I can get through anything.
"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." Arnold Schwarzenegger
Working with Amy got me into the best shape of my life. She pushed me to do things I never thought I could. I went from being someone who didn't think she could run to running 30-45 minutes straight and someone who didn't think she could lift heavy weights to performing walking lunges with an extra 50 pounds. I am proud to say that I lost 15 inches while sticking with the program. Amy's approach to training makes you want to be a better person.
I played sports all my life, played basketball in college. I will tell you that I had experienced the jock "lifting weights" with the basketball team, the typical trips to the gym that netted almost no results. You would think that after 12 years of being a fit person that I kind of knew what I was doing. Unbelievably I was wasting my time, energy, and my results were lagging.
Amy began training me with stability training, strength training, and helping me with my diet. All three were lagging. Her sessions were quick and brutal, but SO effective. Sprinkling in Yoga, Pilates, Strength Training, stretching, and her knowledge/expertise was just what I needed. My trips to the gym decreased by 1/2, my time in the gym decreased by 1/2, and my results probably doubled.
Her distance workouts were awesome. I had utilized her for some one on one, sometimes my schedule didn't let me meet personally with her, but her emailed workouts were perfect (probably not as effective with her pushing me).
I began running long distances just before working with Amy. I completed 10 marathons, 2 half marathons, 1 olympic, and a half iron man the year I utilized her services. She prevented injuries, encouraged, educated, and instilled passion. I am proudly 36 years old, and could kick my 22 year old self's butt in any activity, exercise, race, or endurance. I lost 35 pounds, gained an almost 8 pack (can't lie didn't get the last two :), and felt amazing. Thank you, Amy, for all you have done for me and my future me because you have changed my life.

Amy's knowledge of fitness and nutrition has helped me go beyond what I thought possible after having 5 kids. For years I tried to lose weight and get in shape, but the same old routine just wasn't cutting it. Once I met with Amy, she designed a home based workout for me, we talked about the importance of nutrition and I signed up for her boot camp. Both workouts are excellent and I love how she mixes them up. My home workouts are changed every 3 weeks and boot camp is a great group workout that is different every day. Keeping a food journal really made a difference. Amy is a wonderful trainer; she's just one of those unique people that make you want to persevere and not give up.
