Amanda has been my trainer for a couple months now. She is flexible, works with your schedule and needs, and listens to your concerns. I had a tough time with proper form for squatting and deadlifting, but her training has made me improve tremendously. She’s easily accessible and has a lot of experience and information to support and guide you during your training. She’s honest, down to earth, and encouraging. Thank you Amanda for pushing me out of my comfort zone!


I met my coach through a friend and it was lift off from that point. I thought I was going to do a regular online program to build strength, but I definitely got more. She actually cares about her clients and looks out for their best interest. She’s never too busy to help and her response time is almost immediate. Communication is key and that is one of her best attributes. If you give her 100…she reciprocates that energy right back!


Amanda is an incredible and professional coach- her programming challenges me mentally and physically in all the right ways. Her cues are prompt, specific, and helpful; I now lift pain free, I’ve gained 4.5 pounds of lean mass since starting coaching with her, and immeasurable confidence in and out of the gym as a result. Asking her to coach me was the best decision I’ve made in my powerlifting journey!
