Amy is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and HFPN Coach. She is currently an independent trainer at an Anytime Fitness in South Dakota.
"I spent my entire life being overweight. I can even remember being in the first grade and making sure I got in the front of the line at gym class so I made sure I got a uniform that fit. There was not a year that went by that someone didn't remind me that I was fat. It wasn't until my Junior year in college that I lost some weight and started to feel ok about myself, not great but, but better."
"I went on to teach public school, met my husband, and had a son. I had a little girl 2 years later, and when she was almost 2 months old, I lost my beautiful 2 year old boy to sudden pneumonia type illness."
"Completely devestated I did get pregnant with in 6 months having not lost any baby weight and had another little girl"
It wasn't until she was almost 1 that I decided enough was enough and I changed my eating habits, began to exercise and lost 50 lbs. Most importantly this was the first time in my life I actually believed I was worth it and could get healthy.
This is where my desire to help others began. I simply want to tell others my story and help them become the person they were meant to be.
