The daughter of an Exercise Physiologist, PhD, multiple marathon runner, and outdoor enthusiasts, Amanda was born and raised in a lifestyle of health and fitness. She received her B.S. from the University of Idaho where she relished in her many outdoor classes and events such as golf, rock climbing, and white water rafting. In her years post college she participated in numerous races and trained for over a year in Hapkido Martial Arts while living in South Korea. A couple of years ago Amanda began taking barre classes and found it to be a perfect non impact compliment to her high impact fitness routine. This, along with her passion to constantly improve her physical health and the health of others, led her to become a certified Total Barre instructor. Outside of her fitness regimen and her full time career in digital advertising, you can find Amanda on the golf course, engulfed in a good autobiography, or fancying herself a nice glass of merlot.
