Amanda Tripodi is dear to my heart, as both a trainer and friend. I met Amanda in 2010 when I began to train for the New York City Marathon. At this time, I lacked the endurance and confidence to believe that I could pursue this newfound hobby competitively. However, after working through my exercise regime with Amanda daily, I gained the strength, stamina, and confidence to see running as not only a hobby, but a passion. Before I knew it, running and exercise became part of my daily routine, and I began to live a healthy lifestyle with Amanda by my side every step of the way. I am pleased to say that Amanda and I are still close friends; we exercise together each morning. Amanda has given me the skills to be successful and still inspires me everyday to continue striving for greatness. It is with the utmost level of gratitude and respect that I write this testimonial, and I am confident that Amanda will improve your life for the better, as she has improved mine.
