Amanda Rockwood started her true fitness journey in 2009. After having her two eldest daughters, she knew it was time to get healthy, fit and strong. She found that with hard work, dedication, and a ton of sweat, anything was possible.
Amanda had started with interval training, kickboxing, and traditional weight lifting. In the summer of 2009, she took on the challenge given to her by a friend to learn kettlebells. From the moment she picked up her first bell, she was hooked! She had found her passion, kettlebells, fitness, and leading a healthy lifestyle. Not only did Amanda want this for herself, but she was determined to share this way of life with EVERYONE. In the spring of 2010 Amanda registered for the RKC Level I Certification program, by that summer she had her first certification under her belt and was training clients. She knew she could help motivate and inspire people and never looked back.
For the past 7 years, Amanda has been a lead trainer at various fitness centers in the Northland. She is proud and honored to have been a part of so many people's fitness journeys. Amanda will continue to expand her knowledge so she will be able to guide, support, and push her students to that next level of meeting and exceeding their goals.
In 2012 Amanda was given another challenge by a friend, to run a marathon. Being that she had NEVER run in her life, this seemed like a huge undertaking. Through training and a "never quit" attitude, Amanda finished her first marathon and found a new love for running and racing. She has since then gone on to do various trail and obstacle races, taking on her 1st 50k Ultramarathon in the summer of 2016.
One of Amanda's strong beliefs in life is that everything happens for a reason. This was proven true to her at the starting line of the 2012 Grandma’s Marathon where she was introduced to Paul Rockwood. A partner with the same passion and love for not only pushing himself to meet and exceed goals, but also to help others do the same.
Together with the support of their family and friends they were able to create Green Light Fitness. A fitness center unlike any other. Not because of the equipment inside or the color of the walls, but because of the heart and soul behind their passion to change the lives of each and every person they come in contact with.
