Amanda began teaching fitness in 2001. From co-leading rock climbing, kayaking, and caving expeditions, to teaching collegiate level competitive fencing, and participating in just about anything and everything–martial arts, dance, yoga, pilates, ice climbing, skydiving, canyoning, and a million other health adventures–Amanda LOVES showing her students that FITNESS CAN BE FUN!
She believes that boredom is the enemy of any progression in fitness (and in life) so she dedicates her classes to the fine art of having fun—“a workout doesn’t have to be work”—and incorporates a mix-and-match philosophy to each workout session. Because inspiration manifests in infinite ways, Amanda strives to try and teach as many types of classes as possible. She is motivated by the stories and accomplishments of her friends and students, by the rush of achieving more than she thinks she can, and by the challenge of new adventures. When she’s not dancing and moving around like a mad woman, you can find Amanda out in nature, or conversely, glued to her computer doing digital graphic and television production work…or planning the next big “thing!”
“The more you come to class, the more confidence you will gain, the more strength you will build, and the more fun you will have! A workout doesn’t have to be work!”
