Amanda Arnold - Testimonials:
"I started working out with Amanda Arnold a few months ago, and I wish I had found her years ago when I started visiting Minneapolis. She is smart, creative, inspiring--with a strong background in posture and alignment but also long-time experience in weight-lifting, a very unusual, and balanced combination. For someone like me, in my 50s, who wants to build flexibility as well as strong bones and muscles, this is a perfect mix. Amanda is curious about all types of workouts and incorporates barre, pilates, yoga, as needed. She also inspired me to start walk-running around the neighborhood, climbing stairs, and more. She's super-friendly, high energy. I have worked with trainers in New York City for over 20 years and she is one of the best, if not the best, I've ever met. I highly recommend her."

"Amanda has a gift for working with older clients. For someone who started a fitness program at the age of 73, I'm delighted with the progress I've made under Amanda's knowledgeable guidance and her "can do" attitude that has inspired me to adhere to an exercise program for the first time in my life. Amanda is working with me so that I can be an effective Peace Corps volunteer. She is one of the most inspirational professionals that I've come into contact with since retiring four years ago. Her expertise in working with older clients is simply amazing."
