I love what I do and that love shows. Having an intelligently designed workout is key to success, along with correct alignment and proper execution of the movements. My effective cueing helps with building body awareness, increasing proprioception within our bodies that translates into strong, healthy, and physically fit bodies.
Exercise programs are only effective if we actually do them. Giving my clients 100% of my effort and time, going that extra mile so you can reach your health and fitness goals. All my clients (minus the streamed programs) receive full access to my powerful Healthy Habits Coaching program which deals with behaviour change to make healthy habits stick once and for all.
As we age, we need to be more careful on what movements we execute as it's easier to develop an overuse injury. I work with clients of all ages, however, I specialize in working with the 40 to 80 age group who want to prevent injuries (pre-habilitation) and who have developed a chronic overuse injury or have recently recovered from an acute injury (after working with a physiotherapist). It's important to workout hard and be challenged, but to exercise smart and safely.
"I did my first class this morning on my phone and I can’t tell you how joyous it was to see your smiling face and to have the familiarity of doing your class again. It was tough for sure as it’s been awhile since I did your class."
"I am pleased to have the opportunity to talk about my experience working out with Amy Goeldner. I am a senior who wanted to improve my strength and to develop and maintain a regular fitness program. I have been dealing with different physical problems that makes some movements painful. Amy has been very adaptable in her recommendations for my program. She is able to adjust my program to help me build strength without hurting or aggravating old injuries. Amy is very encouraging and accepting of my preferences. She instills confidence because of her wide ranging knowledge in the field of fitness and nutrition. I have developed a great fitness program with her guidance and have maintained it over the last months. I also joined her pilates barr program and have made much progress in my strength over all. Again in this program she always gives alternate movements to encourage participation but to protect participants from injuries. She knows her clients and will often suggest alternate movements for individuals. I would recommend Amy's programs for any aged individual, and highly recommend her for seniors who wish to improve overall strength, and to diminish those nagging aches and pains."
"Amy was my personal trainer for 10 sessions. She provided a program personalized to fit my body type and age. I really felt she listened to me. She was always professional, positive and encouraging. I felt comfortable with her which boosted my confidence in the gym. The program she put together was so flexible and doable at home, while travelling or in the gym; I had no excuses not to get my workout in. I was impressed with Amy’s knowledge and awareness of the body’s mechanics, which helped me to Improve my posture and technique while working out. I appreciated her detail to each exercise; correction without judgement. I am feeling stronger and happier. I am able to walk and cycle again with pleasure and much less pain. I also adjusted my diet to fit my body type to compliment the workouts. At 64, And 5 months later I still have to work through some issues, but now I know I can improve. Your never too old to restart and get those muscles learning again! I feel incredibly lucky to have had such a wonderful trainer! Thank you for changing me physically and mentally Amy!"
"Awesome. You have no idea ...well maybe you do!! But I really appreciate all you have done for me.

Seriously I have never had so many things go wrong. Covid impact :( Or maybe just out of shape! I will sign up right now. My obliques are settling down so that is really great. Thank you so much."

IST is about honouring where your body is at and giving it what it needs - a balanced health regime. It’s about creating a strong and balanced body from the inside out. Working our supporting intrinsic muscles helps stabilize the body's foundation, so that our extrinsic muscles (the surface “power” muscles) can do their job properly and purposefully. The IST method works both your intrinsic and extrinsic muscles for a whole body approach to strength and cardio training. While reaching your desired weight is important if that is your goal, IST is challenging, however, is it not about arduously struggling to obtain an impossibly perfect body shape, it’s about creating strong, supported, balanced bodies that can function and move with freedom and ease.
The IST method honours where each and every participant is on their health and wellness journey. As a skilled and experienced certified trainer with a corrective exercise background, I provide modifications and challenges for all exercises so that every client reaches their full potential safely and effectively.
