Make time for training.

Lose the stress and workload, and leave the details of program analysis and development to me! For training resources, see my blog below.

I am Amy – your sports and fitness programming solutions expert. I have spent the past 30 years in gyms and athletic training centers and loved every single minute of it! Although I hold a Ph.D. in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Austin and an MS from Florida State University I am proud to have been truly educated in the gyms. It has been both a blessing and a privilege to be a part of the sports and fitness industries. Passionate about gyms and exercise programming, my goal is to support trainers, coaches, and businesses through valuable continuing education and strategic programming solutions.

Through custom program assessments, speaking engagements, workshops, online courses, blogs, publications, and social media, sports & fitness are my life and I want to share that with you. I would love to hear from you. Please contact me here or directly at

Step-by-Step Programming Introduction

“Easy doesn’t mean cutting corners or not making the cut – it means working smarter, not harder and longer for the same outcome!”

~ Dr. Amy

Here are five quick programming tips:

  1. Start with a focus on the end goal(s) and outcomes.
  2. Simplify the process by narrowing your options to what you have available to work with and what is easiest for you.
  3. Stick with the 1st three weeks of programming only (duration of initial program set for you).
  4. Set your frequency of sessions.
  5. Establish your rest periods, both in session and between session.
  6. Choose your mode(s) of exercise for each session.
  7. Set your volume (how much) goals.
  8. Set your intensity (how hard) goals.
  9. Develop a few quick modifications in advance – obstacles will arise!

These are just a few tips to get you started with easy, safe, and effective programming. More to some soon!
