    I am going through some major transitions in life and decided to work with a personal trainer to motivate me to get both my physical and mental health back on track. (Researching all the fitness/nutrition related things were just stressing me out, and you hire people to do your taxes and tutor you, so why not let a professional guide me toward my goals?) I went through the ideafit website (and Google) and interviewed MANY different trainers and I could tell right away (esp from her prompt communication) that Amanda was a professional who was dedicated to fitness. This is not just a job for her - she has PASSION for what she does! She knows her stuff.

    It's been 2.5 weeks so far but everyone around me already notices the difference in my disposition. **Amanda somehow magically makes getting your butt kicked the most awesome part of the day.** Her enthusiasm and dedication really do rub off on you. I wanted to create workout consistency and improve my strength, and I feel like she tailored the workouts for me to target my specific goals.

    My outlook on health/fitness/working-out would have been greatly affected by the interaction with my first serious trainer (kind of like how if your first math teacher sucks, you'll hate math forever), and I got incredibly lucky meeting Amanda. I would recommend her to everyone regardless of their fitness level and goals - she will help you get there!

    I will always be thankful and never forget, Amanda was the only trainer able to helped me achieve my goal of losing the last 10 lbs. Three months before my wedding, I contacted Amanda. It was the best thing, I could have done before my big day.
    I have been an competitive athlete since the age of seven. I have always battled my weight and have never been able to shed the last ten pounds.
    Amanda immediately gave me a eating plan. For the first time in my life, the weight just fell off. Amanda helped me find balance in my life with food, water intake and the right amount of exercise. These coupled with Amanda's passion, motivation and knowledge increased my fitness level within the first month.
    Every workout is a new adventure and her energy is contagious.
    Amanda is a professional, positive and knowledgeable trainer I highly recommend.

    Amanda is a terrific athlete and a great motivator. She coached and coordinated our Ragnar Relay team, no small feat considering the logistical efforts required, and also coached our half marathon team. I've also attended her boot camp which was great-I was sore for at least three days after! I found muscle groups that I've never worked before! I cannot recommend her enough for her endless energy, curiosity, intelligence and enthusiasm for fitness.

    Amanda helped me get in shape for my wedding. We started working together about 4 months before the date, and she was great! She changed up our workouts so I never got bored, she always had a positive and encouraging attitude, and best of all, I ended up looking firm and toned for my big day!

    oh where to begin on Amanda ;) .... she is AMAZING! I am a procrastinator and would find every excuse not to workout .... i was 5'4'' at 231 lbs and ready to give up on myself.... one night i searched for personal trainers and found Amanda .... i told myself i'll give her a shot .... now about 11 months later i'm 192 lbs .... the first few months was very hard for me to get on board with the eating and exercise ( i would cheat), but after awhile it got easier and now i actually look forward to working out! Changing my eating habits is still the hardest thing to change but Amanda is always there to teach me what foods are good and provides lots of ideas of what to buy ... and i mean she's always there, i text her all the time with questions :) .... I'm sure i could've done the starvation diet and dropped weight but i want to make a lifestyle change not a quick fix .... Amanda is just a natural at teaching people how to accomplish this change .... she has a great energy about her and a positive vibe that you can literally feel ... she's always smiling :) and she will never let you give up on yourself!!
    I am a real person with real results! Amanda is a life changer!
