December – Amanda J. Ward
Amanda J. Ward, from Hardyville, VA, started her personal training career on the side of a full time job as a Director for a Kids Mental Health Program. She was great at what she did, administratively and inter-personally, but was left unfulfilled. She had always wanted to impart change in peoples lives on a more visceral, daily living level and she had experienced her own transformation through food and fitness, so she was inspired to help others do the same. She made the move and became a Beachbody coach which helped her revive the desire to coach people vs. provide “therapy” as my degree indicates. Her and her husband then began growing their personal brand via Awarding Life, LLC through blogging.
She loves coaching with Beachbody because it provides a great platform for meeting and reaching people at their level, but she is ready to take things further with a life coaching academy 90 day program for setting and crushing goals in the lifestyle wellness area.
