Amanda Burke

Head Instructor and Studio Owner

Amanda  has worked in the fitness industry for over 25 years. She is passionate about fitness and health as lifestyle not an 8 week challenge & encourages everyone to commit to their results.

“I began my career as Group Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer while still at school at Oakhill College. It became clear pretty fast what I preferred to do! I’ve had many years of teaching ALL types of classes from Aqua Fitness to being qualified in 4 Les Mills programs and even Zumba! I taught overseas in London, Scotland and Hong Kong when I was travelling during my twenties, with not a big difference between packed & sweaty Group Fitness studios by day and busy, sweaty nightclubs in the nights in those days! In my 30’s I returned to Sydney to settle down & found myself rediscovering my passion for horses, which led to moving out to Dural four years ago. I discovered Pilates when I was a in rehab for shoulder surgery that had been exacerbated from Crossfit (and teaching way too many classes). Pilates Reformer has honestly kept me looking and feeling fit and given me a completely different mindset of how I thought I had to train to keep my body fat down and my strength/fitness up. I no longer feel as though I NEED to constantly be sore from training to get the result I wanted – although I do enjoy being ‘reminded’ of where my abdominals are! I get a huge buzz from seeing people discover what they are capable of physically which can then translate in to renewed confidence in other areas of their life.”
