Welcome!

Hi! This is Dr. Amy. Welcome to my site.

I am all things weight training. My mission is to provide working professionals vested in muscle performance, with real-world, up-to-date, educational programs and resistance training content.

Currently, I own and operate physicaltherapy.education. The goal of that platform is to provide physical therapists and PT assistants state board approved resistance training focused courses.

I have spent the past 30 years in gyms, athletic training centers, and classrooms, and loved every single minute of it! My career started in Gold’s gym in Tallahassee, FL and developed into an interest in boxing in boxing training methods in Austin, Texas while I was earning my PhD.¬† The professional boxing gyms in Las Vegas, NV were where I first recognized the relationship between simplicity, timing, and muscle performance. What I learned in boxing training over the years was the original idea for the book Timing Resistance Training (Human Kinetics, 2020). I’ve stuck with the ideas about performance I learned in boxing and use them as the foundation for how I teach weight training methods today.

My goal is to serve the resistance training community, wherever they may practice. To achieve that goal, my continuing education programs are approved by the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA), American Council on Exercise (ACE), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), State Boards of Chiropractic, Board of Certification (BOC) for Athletic Trainers, and State Boards of Physical Therapy.

Through live events, articles, and online continuing education courses, weight training methods and muscle performance are my passion. I want to share that with you and would love to hear from you. Please contact me directly at amyashmorephd@gmail.com.
