Amy was a state-ranked runner in high school. After graduating, she attended and ran for Providence College (Division I) and later SUNY Geneseo (Division III). Post-collegiately, she ran for the Genesee Valley Harriers of Rochester New York for 2 years and now runs for Reese Racing Club out of Denver, Colorado and is chasing an Olympic Qualifying time in the marathon. Her recent 2019 achievements include 1st in the Lucky Laces 10K in 38:24, 3rd in Denver’s Colfax Half Marathon in 1:22:50, and 1st in the Cherry Creek Sneak 10 miler.

Amy's sessions vary depending upon whether they occur at the track or at the gym. At the track, she has her athletes warmup and then complete form drills and dynamic stretching, followed by a track workout and cooldown. At the gym, she concentrates on strength training specific to runners (such as glute activation techniques, posture exercises, stability drills, etc).

All of Amy's athletes also receive a VDot02 account and training plan to support them on the days they don't meet in person.

Knows what’s up

I found Amy as a trainer to help me with my running. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I started improving very quickly. She was easy to keep in touch with and always had my workouts planned out on time. If anyone out there wanted to become a better runner I would not hesitate to recommend Amy as a coach.
I've been working with Amy for almost two years. Not only has she made me stronger and a better runner, but I also actually LIKE my body for the first time in my life thanks to her. Even after two years, she still manages to push me, hold me accountable, and keep workouts interesting and different, and my health continues to improve as a result. Working with Amy has been the best decision I've made regarding my health and I highly recommend her.
I have been working with Amy for a few years now and her energy and enthusiasm for health, fitness and running is contagious! She creates personalized plans that are easy to follow and adaptable to your lifestyle. I worked with her to get back into running and was running for seven minutes straight in no time, a record for myself. I am still working on becoming a better runner and decided for the winter months to focus on her HIIT training program. While working on my endurance, physical fitness and diet, she has been there for me every step of the way! I can't thank her enough.
I HIGHLY recommend Amy for virtual training. Her business is not flashy and pricey as others are. She trains real, working, busy adults. I am a middle school teacher. In the past, I couldn't balance running with school. With Amy, her manageable plan has not only allowed me to run, but also strengthen twice/week. Also, Amy is personable. She is consistently available for questions and advice, but more importantly, moral support. After my half marathon, I texted her after I crossed the finish line to tell her my time and share my excitement.
