“My passion for helping people live healthier lives came from my own personal experience,” says Tumwater-based personal trainer, Amanda Price-Salazar. The owner of Edge Fitness, Amanda uses her personal story to help inspire her clients. After losing an extensive amount of weight, Amanda became a personal trainer, nutrition specialist and eventually opened her own business in 2000.
Years later, Amanda was in a horrific motorcycle accident. Coming back from injury has helped her best relate to clients who are also making the trek back to fitness.
“I draw on my personal experiences, from feeling overweight and depressed, to dealing with an eating disorder, and overcoming a traumatic injury, to connect with my clients,” says Amanda. “I know what they are going through because I have been there too.”
Amanda is passionate about personal fitness but she is also realistic about goal setting.
