Amy's personal training career began after an event that was life changing.
This experience led her to recognize that physical exercise helped her
to relieve stress in her life.
After a few months of working out she discovered that physical movement made her
feel strong and in control. Then she decided to divert her depression into something
more productive by seeking a new direction in her life.
Discovering exercise was an avenue that encouraged her to explore
all forms of body movement. This eventually led her into the true calling in
life which was to assist others in becoming physically stronger and healthier each day.
This passion has been ongoing for 29 years.
While working for the local YMCA in her home town, it became apparent that various
classes were needed to properly condition a 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
recommended by the International Health, Racquet Club and Sports Club
Association (IHRSA), and the National Posture Institute (NPI) in Posture Analysis Correction.
