Nutrition Coach: Amy Beyer, CNS
As a nutrition & fitness coach, I am committed to helping people develop a positive relationship with food and achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle through fitness & nutrition.
My background in sports and fitness, both as a college athlete and group fitness devotee, made me passionate about the power that fitness has to transform lives. I have always felt at my best, mentally & physically, when I am actively engaged in regular and consistent exercise! KBC melds all of my favorite components of fitness (being outside, great people, fun music & dynamic workouts)! As an instructor, I thrive on the energy and camaraderie that is created when people feel strong, capable and successful.
While I have been regularly involved in exercise most of my life, I used to consume a lot of foods that weren’t the best for my body. They were heavily processed, quick fixes, and full of ingredients I could barely pronounce. After my son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2013, I began learning how his body handled foods and started making small changes at home. I cut back on processed food and refined sugars in favor of more whole foods that I knew were nourishing and energizing. Over the course of the next 2 years, I continued to replace packaged foods and frequent eating out with choices that were more natural and nutrient-dense. Since then, I’m continually learning about nutrition and what our bodies need daily to feel balanced and energized.
My goal is to share what I have learned and strip away the confusion of the weight loss industry. I don’t promote any diets, sell any products or overly restrict calories. I want to give my clients ways to enjoy simple and delicious foods that fuel their body and empower them to enjoy eating without guilt.
I hold a professional certification in Fitness Nutrition and Group Exercise from the International Sports Science Association. In addition, I have a B.A. from the University of Virginia and a M.Ed. from George Mason University. I look forward to continuing to coach and educate using an integrative approach that balances wellness, fitness & nutrition.
