I AM ALFA because, I am brave, honest, humble, and authentically me. Having suffered from low self-esteem throughout my youth and young adulthood, I know what it means to have someone see your potential and help you reach it.

A little about Amanda
I have called Campbell River BC home for the last 17 years, where I have lived with my husband and two children. My husband and I own a Road Building Company, and having recently earned my Nutritional Consulting Diploma, I am working on starting my own online Nutritional Consulting Company. (stay tuned) I spent thirteen years working within the health care industry, and 28 years working within the fitness industry, most of which was spent as a Personal Trainer. I have competed in both Fitness and Fitness Modelling, earning my Pro Card with the NPAA in 2017.
“ I am an ALFA because, I am brave, honest, humble, and authentically me. ”
I have a love for learning, and a strong desire to share that knowledge with others. Those that know me would say that I have no problem speaking my mind or standing up for that which I believe in, or for those I care about.
“ I have worked as a Personal Trainer in many different environments, and with many different types of women. To be able to help people realize their potential and gain confidence in themselves in an incredibly rewarding experience. " Having suffered from low self-esteem throughout my youth and young adulthood, I know what it means to have someone see your potential and help you reach it."
“ Fitness has brought me relief from sorrow, and stress, and given me the ability to celebrate the good days. It has taught me self-discipline, and self-respect, and has allowed me to be a good role model to my children. It has also given me the opportunity to meet like-minded people and develop great friendships."
“ To pick one ALFA moment in my life would be difficult. A lot of the battles that have made me the strongest been private and painful. ”I have always had a strong sense of who I am, and what I believe in, even as a child. No matter how hard the battle was, I somehow knew I could get through it."
