“I have been a client of Amy’s for the past 3 years and she brings her A+++ game to her clients every time! Her level of expertise, commitment to excellence and enthusiasm is unparalleled in my experience and sure to help you make it to your goals. At 57 years old and a chef for the past 40 years. Amy had her work cut out for her but she has pushed me without being pushy, made believe I can do it and sure enough, I did…

I completed 3 Ironman 70.3 races as well as numerous swim, bike and run events injury free. No matter your level of fitness Amy is going to create a training regimen tailored to your specific goals and will coach you beyond the pool, bike or the doors of the training studio!

I Highly Recommend!!!”

“I started working out with Amy as a part of corporate group fitness project and I knew from the first class that I loved the energy that Amy brings to her clients.  While the goal of our endeavor was to bring a sense of esprit de corps, she has gone beyond that to get us all to think about challenging ourselves, working hard, but yet still being a part of team…the things that we all need to bring to work each and every day.  I also love the fact that Amy comes up with a new routine every time we meet and she truly understands proper form, injury prevention and tailoring exercises to those that might have some sort of constraint.

Amy’s energy is contagious and she always pushes me to new levels of performance, even though I sometimes I feel like quitting myself!”

“I started working out with Amy through our company, MCM, who has a corporate fitness program with her. Amy makes everyone feel relaxed and geared up for the workout no matter their fitness level. She doesn’t make anyone feel intimidated or like the workout is beyond their capability. Everyone in our class came out of it saying that it was one of the best workouts they have ever done, not only because they felt like they worked hard, but because they had a lot of fun.

Amy brings an incredible energy to the workout and you immediately feel comfortable around her. And because you feel comfortable you try harder and you are not afraid to fail. I will be a client of Amy’s for years to come regardless of whether or not my company is.”

“Amy makes you feel like your goals are her goals, she actually gets in and works out with you. I have worked out for years but never saw the results in my body until I started working out with Amy. The results I have achieved are due to a perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging goal setting. Amy embodies change. Her encouragement allowed me to gain the confidence to walk into any fitness center and lift weights..(facing the mirror)”

“Although I like to think I train hard on my own, I always leave Amy’s training class exhausted and dripping with sweat but proud of the feeling that she truly pushed me to work harder than I thought I could!!”

“I hate working out, but not with Amy. There is something about working out with a trainer that understands what it is like to be human and not a machine. Amy knows what it is like to struggle with a diet, what it is like to be tempted by that last cookie left in the office break room. It is refreshing to work out with someone who understands my struggle, it motivates me because I am not alone. Amy pushes me…OMG she really pushes me! I always laugh that I am paying someone to “beat me up”. Amy understands what you need each workout and can motivate and inspire you at each workout. The best part is that no 2 workouts are the same…not at all! Amy really knows how to is things up and that keeps my body guessing and makes me stronger. I a, as fit as my 13-year-old niece! Amy really is the best!”

“Amy is the definition of a personal athletic trainer. Look up that term in the dictionary ­ her photo will be there! I have never met someone more sincerely dedicated to the art of personal fitness both personally and professionally. Her ability is contagious ­ enthusiastic, fun, motivating and inspiring ­ the perfect combination! Her knowledge and skills are second to none. Her talents know no limits ­ both in age and ability ­ she has a knack for interacting with people of all ages and talents that is truly impressive. I highly recommend her to anyone of any ability / age level ­ she is absolutely fantastic!”

“Amy has the ability to inspire even those who feel uninspired. Her drive, energy, and commitment are both amazing and contagious, you can’t help but feel yourself striving to be better when you are training with her. I have worked out for years with and without trainers and I can honestly say that I have never wanted to push myself harder than when I am in Amy’s presence.

If you are a person like me that gets bored easy at the gym lifting weights and running on the treadmill then Amy is the trainer for you. Amy is so creative in her workout routines that she lays out that you are never bored and your body is always guessing as to what she is going to come up with next. Heck, look at me, she kills me every week and I’m still hanging around for more!”

“Amy’s style of workouts are Energizing! Motivating! Challenging! 

Amy’s workout routines are diverse and change every session. Boredom has no chance! Amy adapts the workouts for all ages and fitness levels with appropriate modifications. For those of us in the older generation, her workouts have kept us active and competitive with those in the younger generations.

We have trained with Amy for over 5 years for running, swimming, and biking as well as overall fitness workouts that include strength, cardio, flexibility, and balance. Amy does it all!

Best of all she does it in a welcoming environment that is always friendly and fun.”

“I moved to Sarasota from L.A. earlier this year. In the months that I have been taking Amy’s classes, I have met a great group of people who motivate me and support my goals. The classes challenge our dynamic group and Amy continues to inspire the best in us each day. Somehow, Amy makes training fun and we all see results. Who knew getting in shape could be fun!?!

I’m hooked.”

“Amy’s classes are perfect for all levels. She is excellent at changing the workouts to improve your strength, endurance, and cardio. You leave feeling exhausted but at the same time so excited that you accomplished a full body workout. You will see results within months and the ability to accomplish more and more in class.

I’ve been a client of Amy’s for a year and I’m so happy with the results! She pushes me to accomplish my goals, keeps me motivated and coming back for more!”

“Amy Whittington is an amazing person.  She is extremely dedicated to her own fitness and has a way of transferring that dedication and spirit to those who work out in her classes.  I tried one of Amy’s classes about a year ago and now I am hooked! She has attracted a great group of professionals who brave her workouts to start their day. Every class is different so you never know what your challenge will be.  I do not know how she continues to come up with so many combinations, but the end of each class I feel such a sense of accomplishment. Many times Amy works out with us while still keeping an eye on everyone to ensure that our form is correct and we are not struggling. I am leaner, more toned and far fitter than I have ever been.

In addition to the classes, Amy also trained me in swimming and she trains clients of all fitness levels on a regular basis.  She tailors the workout to individual needs, incorporating all types of fitness training to accomplish individuals goals.

Like I said she is an amazing person and I am grateful to be one of her clients!!”
