The Early Years

Amy entered the world of sport and fitness at 11 years old. In her teens she competed as a national athlete in the demanding Tetrathlon Event. It is because of this she became familiar with training, coaching and the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle. Over the years her interest in increased; not only in a practical sense, but through study until ultimately it became her career.

Today

Much has been accomplished to date. Although she will tell you, one of the most exhilarating events in her life was jumping out of a plane at 13,000ft in aid of Kidney Research: A charity very important to her as she has a long term kidney condition.

What Amy's Clients Say

  • INSPIRATIONAL - MOTIVATIONAL

        

    Amy West is one of the most inspirational, hard working people I've met. Having a personal trainer that understands you is unbelievably helpful. If you feel like throwing in the towel she knows exactly what to say to get you motivated again. Amy's shown me that hard work is the key to success and over 2 years we have both seen a lot of progress - from 97KG to my present 76KG, with much more to come. Amy takes the time to learn how far she can push you and when you really can't do anymore: You can't get away with doing nothing, you have to put 110% effort in at all times! Understanding that getting motivation can sometimes be hard, she is always there to help when you're stuck. Amy's devotion and determination is second to none and she will keep on pushing you to your limits. Amy has changed my life completely, helping me boost my confidence and how I feel about my body. This has led me to do things which I never thought I could. I will always be grateful for what Amy's taught me over the years. Everyone needs their own EA (Evil Amy) in their lives! - Rhys"

  • PASSIONATE & PROFESSIONAL

        

    Motivational, Passionate, Professional are just 3 words out of many to describe Amys work ethic to personal training and fitness! Not only does she ooze passion, she generally cares, and wants the best results for you. Goals and achievements are set and Amy is excellent at encouraging you in the right ways to achieve them. Not only did i enjoy every second of the training, it has motivated me in all areas and giving me an extra boost of confidence! I can honestly say fitness is now one of my main hobbies, and my fitness level is increasing all the time. So a massive thanks to Amy for giving me a passion, drive and determination to always push and better myself.

  • MODERN PT INSTRUCTOR

        

    Amy has been my PT for over a year now, without Amy my results would not be what they are a year on. I never wanted a PT to let me get away with "giving up" and I can assure you that Amy motivates, supports and controls the session to maximise the end result! It seems that Amy understands my body, she pushes when it's needed and sees when it's the "true time" to take a breath! Mixing up each session with high tension bands, small and large fitness balls, step and all the equipment needed to refine each body part. I can ask Amy for help and she gives it, work out plans for my gym work, diet and food plans for each meal. Amy is a modern PT, she keeps up to date with "what's new", often she will be on seminars and courses to ensure that modern and old PT is refined to promote the best results."
