Hello fitness friends. My name is Amy and I am a certified personal trainer, corporate wellness coach, fitness nutrition coach, conditioning coach, Pilates instructor, cross-training, cycling, group fitness instructor, former Division I college athlete and nutrition enthusiast. Even though I was very active growing up, after I stopped playing college soccer, I got a pretty tough wake up call when it came to my relationship with food and lifestyle habits and found myself overweight and out of shape. My "come to Jesus" moment was in my early 20's when I was a size 18 and was about to move up to a size 20. For some reason, that was my breaking point. I had not realized how out of shape I truly was and that I had an unhealthy relationship with food which is easily categorized as a food addiction that I still struggle with to this day. After getting active, learning new coping mechanisms and cleaning up my diet, my body and health changed for the best and I never looked back! I am the first to admit that I am not perfect and can relate to many people with their struggles with emotional eating but I have learned that there are ways to overcome these obstacles and live a life of better health and wellness and want to help others do the same!
No matter what a person's circumstances are, my passion is to help people be active, lose weight, get healthier and maintain their health and wellness in their every day lives. As a trainer, I believes that the key to helping someone discover their "inner athlete" is to help them discover what brought them to where they are today, what they want to change and how I can help them achieve their new lifestyle goals in a way that makes them passionate about being healthy. My philosophy is based on lifestyle changes and while the workouts can be challenging, not every one is designed to "kill you." I focus on creating workout programs that are designed to strengthen your weaknesses, fix imbalances, increase aerobic capacity and give you the attention you deserve as an individual and never treat you as a number in a classroom.

My passion for nutrition began when my son developed tree nut allergies at a young age. Since then, learning about food psychology and the way food impacts performance, weight gain and loss, hormonal imbalances, energy levels, inflammation in the body, seasonal allergies and more has become a hobby for the past eight+ years. I spent years as a nutrition blogger but now as a Fitness Nutrition Coach, I like to incorporate nutrition lessons into my classes and corporate wellness services.

As a mother of two children, Blaise and Philomena, I spend my free time being active with family and learning more about nutrition and fitness. I currently teach at Sinclair Community College, do one-on-one and small group personal training privately, run Clearcreek Fitness Bootcamp and work as a Corporate Wellness Coach with local businesses to help transform the health and wellness of their employees.
