Amy comes to Blue Cord with 8 years of coaching experience. She started dabbling in Crossfit in 2012 and has since earned her CFL2, become certified in Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism, CrossFit Kids, and Precision Nutrition.
Amy enjoys the camaraderie and community that comes with CrossFit. She loves seeing athletes push themselves in the gym day after day, constantly working to improve even the little things. While watching big lifts and benchmark PRs is an exciting part of CrossFit, hearing how athletes use their fitness to enjoy life outside the gym is her favorite part of being a coach.
When not coaching or training, Amy spends her time trying to keep up with her two kids (Isla and Seamus) and her dog Lola.
