Emily

Emily is 32 years young! She lives in Marietta GA currently and loves to travel! Working out brings Emily to her happy place every time. She loves working out. Cycling and running are her two main passions!

Her first round of Workitout100 completely changed how she views fitness. Getting up and moving, not for anyone else but herself! (Her mantra: “I’m worth it! I do it because I can! I remember those who can’t and push that much harder”).  She loves to make her workouts fun and is always looking for a new adventure.

If Emily is not working out she is probably hanging out with my friends, crafting, or planning her next ride or run. Her goal for the year is a sprint triathlon in June and a half marathon soon thereafter.

Fitness and sports have always been a big part of her life but after a her collegiate swimming career were cut short due to a shoulder injury, she struggled with working fitness into her life without having practice to go to and a coach to tell her what do.

Courtney

Courtney is a 26 year old small town gal who has now been living in Chicago for 6 years. Courtney graduated from Roosevelt University with a Bachelors in Hospitality Management with a focus in Event Planning. She’s currently a Wedding Planner at Sweetchic Events.

Courtney has been dancing, primarily jazz & hip hop, since she was 5 years old. She was captain of her high school dance team and MVP. After high school, she continued to choreograph routines for the junior high dance team and high school cheer team. Although dance still had a strong influence when she moved to Chicago, the famous college pounds were regretfully added on. Courtney turned to something she used to hate, running, to shed off those unwanted pounds. She not only found a hobby that fit her determined, goal oriented personality, but she found a healthier lifestyle as well. Courtney went from the girl who used to cry when she had to run a mile in gym class, or hide from the gym teacher, to an official marathoner when she finished the 2015 Chicago Marathon. Her healthy lifestyle also includes yoga, weight training, and eating clean but still satisfying her sweet tooth with dessert. Workitout100 has only fueled the fire and pushed Courtney harder to reach her healthy goals.

If Courtney isn’t working or working out, she’s most likely relaxing with her husband watching HGTV, hanging with her family, making cookies, or cleaning (for ‘Friends’ lovers – Courtney is a total Monica)

She continued her education at Argosy University in Eagan for her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. She currently is a ‘more than’ full- time licensed mental health therapist at a non-profit organization and a private practice. She absolutely loves her job.

Health and Fitness has become a HUGE part of Amanda’s life over the past few years. She struggled with the same 30lbs over and over again. She gained all her weight in college. She started fresh with Workitout100 about two years ago and has since been on a journey to being the most fit she has ever been! She lives to inspire and help other people to work on themselves, both internally and externally.

When asked what she likes to do in her spare time her answers tend to be somewhere along the lines of, “What is spare time?” and “I don’t know, workout, lift weights, meal plan and prep!” Fitness and health is very important to finding balance and sanity in her life!
