Amanda moved to South Carolina in April 2013 from Wisconsin. She has been an avid yogi since 2004 and received her 200 hour Yoga Teaching Certification in 2014. Even though yoga was her passion she always loved to try new workouts to incorporate in her everyday life. In the Fall of 2016 she decided to give CrossFit a try since it seemed pretty popular. Going in she felt a little scared and overwhelmed, since all she had heard were the stereotypes.
The coaches helped her out at her first class. They gave her modifications for all of the workouts and gave her the courage and drive to get through it. After the first class she was hooked. She loved the sense of community and how everyone was willing to help her out. After a few weeks Amanda felt stronger and had more energy. June 2017 Amanda was given the opportunity to be the Marketing Manager at Soul Yoga and SRCF and jumped at the chance. She loves being able to share all of her passions under one roof: Graphic Design, Marketing, Yoga and CrossFit.
