During live events, here’s what you can expect from me:
I have spent my life in gyms and athletic training centers. With over 30 years of industry and academic sports sciences experience, I now devote my time to resistance training programming.
Why programming? It is where I can help others and best support the work of trainers. Over the years I learned that it is the intricate relationship between programming variables that excite me. I love coming up with programming solutions to optimize performance outcomes. Programming is in the details and that is what I love! My motto is this:
“Programming is an intricate puzzle of infinite possibilities and details interacting with a human being – a dynamic, changing system.”
~ Dr. Amy
Speaking and lecturing since 1993, I have delivered over 250 live events to academia and industry. With dozens of magazine and blog publications and three books reaching a global audience of over 500,000 people in 80 plus countries, I am honored to touch people through resistance training.
I live in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada with my son, Aiden and our dog, Jimbug.
