As Amy puts it - she bridges the Gap between Health & 'Fitness' to dispel the bullshit & give knowledge to the masses. Her point of difference as a coach is that she doesn’t want to retain clients - she simply wants to create the physical change in a way that educates the person enough to go about it alone after they finish up.
