Master Trainer

Amanda Grobbecker

Amanda grew up an active individual. Playing every sport, running, swimming… and most anything you could think of. Upon University graduation she worked at the University of Waterloo - working with students and developing student engagement. Though much of her time at the University was in a mental capacity, she always found a way to add some active fitness component! In 2011, while still living in Ontario, Amanda began to teach some fitness classes on the side of her regular day job. It wasn't until 2012, when she moved to Yellowknife that she turned to fitness full-time! Over the past five years Amanda has brought a number of active fitness programs to the Northwest Territories for both kids and adults. In her first few years in Yellowknife Amanda was awarded the Innovation Award from the NWT Recreation and Parks Association for her work. She has been to 28 of the 33 communities in the NWT delivering these active program. (Not to worry - she plans to get to the remaining 6 yet!) Amanda is excited to bring DANCEPL3Y to the North and keep supporting the communities in providing active, healthier lifestyles!
