Michael's passion for health and fitness developed largely in high school where he participated in wrestling, cross country and track for 4 years. He began searching for a new outlet after graduation, and discovered one of his biggest passions – competitive bodybuilding. "I've always had a smaller frame, but I found that with positive encouragement and a desire to shape the best version of my own physique I was able to win first place in the lightweight category in my first show."
He's since developed a strong passion for nutrition and strength training, and can't wait to help you reach your goals!

She wants to help everyone find something about fitness they can enjoy, whether it be the accomplishment they feel afterward, or the fact that there is always something new to discover about themselves.

Living healthy is truly a way of life for Amanda. These last few years, she's fallen in love with weightlifting. It allowed her to feel healthy and confident with herself. She struggled for years with dieting and trying to find an exercise routine that gave her the results she wanted. Weightlifting turned her life around, and inspired her to become a fitness professional so she could share her love of fitness with others to help them enhance their lives as she did. "I am dedicated to helping others navigate their own fitness journeys so that they can become healthier, stronger and more confident!"
