Amanda Young

Brooklyn, NY 11218

I've always hoped that my legacy would be to inspire others to be the best versions of themselves and to find their authentic voice through embracing vulnerability. I have been teaching fitness for 20 years and have held many positions within Equinox Fitness including Group Fitness Development Manager, but my career as a social worker in NYC developed my passion for mentoring and providing opportunities for those without access to healthy options. I am a master trainer and lead a program that prepares people within underserved communities to teach fitness to reduce the inequities in a system that is rooted in social and ethnic injustices. While 'i could tell you all about my role as a fitness star and work in fitness production, the thing that has inspired me the most is my own journey with a rare chronic debilitating illness called Trigeminal Neuralgia. This journey has afforded me an opportunity to be a public educator on chronic pain, a health advocate for a rare and chronic illnesses, and I enjoy participating in any discussions that involve the intersection of wellness. My life mantra: "Love the life you live, live the life you love."
