Each week we like to spotlight one of the incredible female athletes that make up our team. Today we are highlighting Amanda! Amanda is a Registered Nurse and works in Las Vegas. She also teaches Critical Care classes to nursing students! Amanda is preparing for her first NPC competition next spring!
A Little About Her
I really enjoy spending time with my family- especially my sweet one-year-old daughter! Some of the things we like to do as a family are: boating, camping, hunting, and snowboarding.
What Brought Her to Fitbliss
I have always been active and enjoyed working out with my husband, but I felt like I had hit a plateau and wasn’t seeing the results that I was wanting. I was amazed with Sam’s posts about her fitness journey and wanted that for myself.
I have always enjoyed Bench Press the most, although, Overhead Presses are a close second!
Someone Who Inspires Her
My coach and friend Sam! From day 1, I have always admired her positivity, ability to balance school, work, and her family all while achieving amazing fitness goals. She is always so kind, optimistic, encouraging, and I wouldn’t be where I am at today if it wasn’t for her!
What She Has Accomplished Since Starting With Fitbliss
I feel like I have accomplished SO much since I first started. Some of the biggest accomplishments being: establishing daily routines, finding balance in nutrition, consistency, and developing a self love and confidence that I had always struggled with in the past
Favorite Macro-Friendly Food
Carbmaster Chocolate Milk, Oikos Triple Zero yogurt, and jerky
Biggest Takeaway From Working With Team Fitbliss
Balance. Since starting with Fitbliss, I have learned to find balance with nutrition, how to enjoy my favorite foods (such as Mac & Cheese and Coconut Pepsi) while still meeting macros, and finding balance with work, grad school, my family, and working out.
An Obstacle She Has Overcome
Patience and self-love. I tend to be hard on myself and focus on flaws and “problem areas”. In the past, this has led to a lot of discouragement and giving up. I have had to overcome being so negative and hard on myself, and have learned to trust and enjoy the process! Small results lead to big changes!
In the next 3 months I’m working towards gaining more muscle and will begin preparing (physically and mentally) to compete in my first show! I would also like to break 200# on my deadlift and squat 🙂
