My name is Amanda and I have been a personal trainer here in Orange County since 2012. I have worked with a variety of clients of all age groups, different goals and have worked around different injuries as well. I love what I do and love being able to guide people towards the path of a healthy lifestyle!
My love for fitness started around 2012. I got a job as an office assistant at a gym called Next Level Fitness in Irvine. Shortly after getting the job I started training with a personal trainer at the gym. I had always been "skinny" and in my teen years could get away with eating pretty much whatever my heart desired and never had to pay the repercussions for that. When I turned 18 I started to notice that things had changed. I started noticing that my bad eating habits had led to parts of my body storing fat around my thighs and stomach. I tried running on my own and doing workout videos but found it hard to keep motivation to keep going. When I started training with my trainer it was one of the hardest things I had ever done! The first two weeks I almost passed out numerous times & my body felt sore every single day. I would get out of bed, sore everywhere and think to myself "I see no results yet, why the hell am I putting myself through this?" But something inside me clicked and I realized that if I wanted true results and wanted to get in shape I would have to work for it day in and day out. After two months I began noticing results, I was starting to build up muscle and getting toned. Week after week I got stronger and stronger.
I now had the passion for fitness and I was determined to never give it up. After a year I realized that my love for fitness and getting myself in shape had reached a new level. I now had the desire to start helping other people reach their goals. In April 2012 I registered for classes to become a certified personal trainer. I received my certification and started training clients with my training business Ace Transformation.
At the beginning of 2013 I made it my goal to compete in a NPC bikini competition. I am happy to announce that I competed on May 24, 2014 and placed second in open bikini class F and 7th in novice bikini class D.
I also competed on October 19, 2013 and placed fourth in novice bikini class F. Since then I have stopped competing but still use a lot of the training methods I learned with my clients everyday. I have also relocated my business to Functional Sports Performance in Irvine.
I love being a personal trainer. Its a job I never dreamed I would get into by I am beyond thankful I did! I love helping out people who started out just like I did. Seeing my clients see results from their hard work is such an amazing feeling!
