Amy's personal training career began after a life changing event.
She began to notice that physical exercise helped her
to relieve stress in her life. She soon discovered that she began
to feel more in control which led her on the path of her new journey.
She began to explore all forms of body movement. This eventually led her
into the true calling in her life which was to assist others in becoming
physically and mentally sound.
While working for the local YMCA in her home town, it became apparent that various
classes were needed to properly condition one's body for optimum performance.
For years she taught classes in Eccentric/Concentric movements such as
Strength, Cardio, Spinning, Aquatics, Pilates, Tai-Chi and Yoga.
She soon discovered that having learned all these different forms of exercise had
transformed her life into a well rounded trainer. Since 1986 her certifications include
accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), standards
