I'm an elite trainer for 150+ Cyberobics and McFit gyms across Europe, a motivational speaker and the force behind Strong Inside Out, but it took me years of recreating myself to get to a place where any of that was possible.
After being diagnosed with clinical depression and obsessive compulsive disorder at a young age, I struggled in silence for years until I ended up in a psychiatric hospital due to a suicide threat. I realized in that hospital that - no matter what life sentences I'd been given - she had the choice to either lie down and wait until it was over, or to try to make the best of it while I'm here.
Through years of therapy, mindfulness work and the discovery of fitness as a therapeutic tool, I completely remade my life.
I created new habits, got in tune with my needs, and became a warrior for my health. What resulted was an inner and outer strength that I never thought was possible.
I became a personal trainer in 2008 and then started my own business and Strong Inside Out in 2011. In 2013, I crowdfunded over $18k to do a 30-city tour to raise money for the suicide prevention charity, To Write Love on Her Arms, of which I coordinated entirely on my own and with the help of my local Lululemon. I followed it up with another tour in 2014 and now I teach my mantra-based bootcamp at retreats and events across the world. I bring elements of my speaking, training and personal recovery to the table to offer you not just an effective plan, but one that fits like a fucking glove.
Oh, and I swear a lot.
Through my recovery journey, I've taken back her power from depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders and massive amounts of fear. Now, it's your turn to shine.

I feel transformed. I know it sounds cheesy to say it, but it really is inside and out. I’m strong and I think - not even think - [exercising and eating healthy is] a habit now. I know myself and what I can do, I don’t limit myself as much and I’m physically stronger. I got real results. I had to go down to the last notch on my belt! Amy was the difference. Accountability is the difference. I’ve never been this consistent for this long. It’s the truth.
Working with Amy changes everything. Amy taught me skill sets that allow me to connect to my body & my Source so I could finally love and trust myself. The things I've been longing for for years are now appearing in my life literally effortlessly. She will teach you the tools to reach and maintain your goals during your time with her and long after. I'm getting all the things I want and more.

Before I started working with Amy, my body was a constant source of anxiety for me. I was convinced that someday, if I were only thin enough, everything in my life would fall into place - but no matter the extremes I went to, it was never, ever enough. Amy changed everything for me. She gave me the tools and support to start believing that I’m enough just as I am, and the accountability to act on that belief by living my very best life. Thanks to Amy, I’ve learned how to be my own hero.
