ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist

Training since 2016

Master of Science in Exercise Physiology

As an overweight and unhealthy teenager who always felt sluggish, Amy knew she had to take control of her health. After a 65 pound weight loss that started in 2005, she is healthier in her 30s then she was in her 20s. This is proof that age is simply just a number, not the determining factor of our health.

After Amy realized how much her life was positively impacted by her weight loss, she became very passionate about health and wellness. She went on to get her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science with a minor in Nutrition, and later her Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from Western Illinois University.

 Amy is very passionate about proper form during exercise to avoid injuries, and coaches on ways to workout safely. She has trained and worked with many different ages and fitness levels, and provides modifications when necessary.

Believing consistency is key when it comes to exercise adherence, Amy helps to find the type of exercise that her clients enjoy, and will have something fun in which to look forward.
