    Amanda has done a fantastic job coaching and programming; she pays close attention to flaws in your training to make sure you are becoming as strong as you can with each workout.

    I’ve been a competitive athlete since I’ve been a kid. I started serious training when I was 17. Needless to say, I’ve worked with a lot of coaches. Amanda is easily one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. Her honest approach, dedication, and knowledge made a world of difference with my body. At age 40, I’ve packed on 35 pounds of mass. Something I didn’t think possible. All my nagging ski injuries have cleared up. Amanda has made the workouts addictive, focused, and fun. Again, I’ve worked with top sports trainers, and top bodybuilding trainers, Amanda blows them away.

    Amanda is an excellent strength coach. I’ve worked with her for about a year now (both online and in person), and I’ve been blown away by the results. Her programming choices, cues, and advice have gotten me stronger than I’ve ever been. Highly recommended.
