Stroller Strides/Body Back Instructor
Amanda attended a Stroller Strides free week in January of 2013 and never looked back! She has two children: Cullen - born in April of 2012, and Rory - born in April of 2015. After years of being the franchise playgroup captain, she went through training to join the Fit4Mom Western Wake instructor team in June of 2017. Her Body Back addiction began in January of 2017 and she recently added that to her instructor certifications! Amanda grew up in the small town of Clinton, NY and attended college and grad school in the Albany area before moving south in June of 2006. She holds a master's degree in education and taught middle school social studies in Apex for two years before returning to grad school at NC State and adding a degree in International Studies.
Amanda enjoys running, traveling, reading, and intense jigsaw puzzles (though she has mainly focused on the running since having children). She heads to her hometown every July to run the Boilermaker 15K alongside other members of her family and ran her first half marathon in 2016. Amanda loves the feeling she gets from working hard during Stroller Strides and Body Back workouts and enjoys meeting other moms with a passion for physical fitness!
