Amanda is a surgical technologist in the operating room and has been for 10 years now; she loves every minute of it. Originally from GA but found herself a home here in Houston back in 2012. She has always played sports, including softball, soccer, and track. Once high school came to an end, in an effort to stay active, she found herself running and lifting on her own. She never truly understood the ins and outs, dos and don’ts of fitness, until she joined Stronger Faster in 2016. Stronger Faster was, and is the gym she was looking for and didn’t even realize it. It has become a huge part of her life; the people are like family to her now. Later, she decided that just working out wasn’t enough. She wanted to educate herself on ALL things fitness, which led her to get her CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate. To this day, she continues to take a variety of courses since this fitness and health world is constantly changing and adapting with the times. As our knowledge of fitness evolves, she wants to grow with it, while educating others along the way. As you can see, being fit is a major priority in Amanda’s life, “we only get one body, treat it like your temple and take care of it…” she says. That’s the message she wants to share with people as a coach, in tandem with her profession.
Three questions with Amanda:
Favorite workout/ movement?
Light weight, high intensity movements. I like workouts that push you to see how much you can give and for how long.
What do you love about being a coach?
I love people and the hidden drive and desire so many people have to achieve something they thought was impossible. Helping them achieve all those things is a very humbling feeling.

if you can’t run, then walk,
if you can’t walk, then crawl,
but whatever you do,
You have to keep moving forward.”
