Amanda Michelle: Focused on the Fitness

After having her daughter, Amanda’s interest in fitness turned into a full blown passion. From loving the way it makes her feel to being a good example for her daughter, Amanda is motivated everyday to live her healthiest life!

 

What is your name and age?

Amanda Michelle, 35

 

What inspired you to get fit?

I've always been into fitness on some level but  after having my daughter, I started working with a trainer and became a lot more interested in fitness. I saw a picture of a bikini competitor and decided I wanted to do that! So that was my push.

 

What keeps you motivated to live the healthy life?

I want to set a good example for my daughter. I also love the way I feel. I can tell in my attitude and energy levels when I've been eating more 'bad' food or not working out with the intensity I normally do. I like the good feels!

 

Describe yourself in three words:

Happy, loud, fun

 

How do you balance life, work, training, and family?

I make time. The gym is my me time, therapy. Where I go to reset my mind, it's just a part of my routine. I've become more flexible on timing and length of workouts because, life does happen! But I just go.

 

 

What is your favorite body part to exercise and why?

Back! It was the first body part I noticed major changes in when I first started really weight training. It's how I gauge progress.

 

If you had to pick three key exercises -- what would they be and why?

Squats: great full body exercise
Overhead press: this is a great exercise because you can do it basically anywhere. Great that separation in your delts
Row, any kind. Low, High, t-bar I love working back and there's so many variations of this exercise to hit different areas. 


What is your favorite cheat “treat”? 

My favorite cheat treat is a Reese's peanut butter cup!

 

What do you think is the biggest misconception about women in fitness?

That our lives revolve around the way we look. You see a lot of that on social media but, that may just be the only part of their life they share.

 

What was the best part of wearing Affitnity? Did you love the clothing? Tell us why :)

I love the fit! It's very flattering and so cute!

 

Anything else you would like us to know?

No, that about sums it up!

AFFITNITY FABRIC

We use Supplex® Lycra for most of our garments.

 

What is Supplex® Lycra? Consumers everywhere like the look and feel of cotton garments. However, they tend to crease, shrink and colors fade. Supplex® Lycra combines the traditional appeal of cotton with the benefits of modern fiber technology.

It is as strong as it is soft.Besides giving comfort while exercising, it facilitates the skin’s natural breathing process and will not wrinkle, shrink or fade.

 

What is so wonderful about the Supplex® fabric is its fusion of softness and stretch. You will be amazed at the stretch, excellent support and soft, natural feel that is designed to be comfortable while wicking moisture away from the body. It is for all shapes and sizes and truly compliments the body with its hugging fit.

You will be amazed at the stretch; excellent support and soft, natural feel that Supplex Lycra offers.
