Amy Lawson
Assistant Manager: Piney Flats
Personal Trainer

My name is Amy Lawson.
I have been a trainer/ group fitness instructor/ and personal trainer off and on for 30 years now.
Co-owned and owned 2 gyms, and managed 2 more. I have taught Zumba, (certified ZIN) group cross-training, Latin dance, and weight training classes. I have trained ladies for bodybuilding shows. 1 took first place in her division. I have done competitive powerlifting in the southern powerlifting association, winning my division in Record Breakers, Holding onto, still, my record for my class.

This took me to nationals. Which is where I stopped?
I'm a NASM certified PT for 28 years. Now working towards my ISSA certifications in strength training and sports nutrition.. Where I would like to work with School athletes in the future..

My style of training is I just teach my clients the basics of form and what they are working on while training a specific part. Mind muscle connection. And I change up their training with power, strength, and some cross-training.

I love what I do. My goal is to help people see their strengths, and build their confidence.
