A native of the Worcester, Massachusetts, area, Amanda began exercising at a regular basis at age 10, often forcing her friends to work out with her. For Amanda, any activity is better than sitting still. She brings an enthusiastic exuberance to all she does, motivating many women to be their best while enjoying the exercise experience through dance. In 2001, she moved to Kingston, New Hampshire, where she raised her three children and more than three pets. After years as a regular at other fitness centers in the area, she began operating Faithful Fitness Studio (then Circuit Workout Plus) in 2012. Having previously worked in corporate accounting, Amanda joined her husband, Rob, as a small business owner. Her passions include gardening, interior decorating, spending time with family, red wine, and Caribbean vacations.
Amanda is licensed as an instructor for Zumba, Zumba Step, Zumba Kids, and Aqua Zumba. She has also completed the NASM personal trainer certification curriculum. In addition, she is a New Hampshire real estate agent with Keller Williams.
Also a native of the Worcester, Massachusetts, area, Cindy moved to Kingston, New Hampshire, in 1987. There she raised three children, serving as a homeschool teacher and church volunteer for years. Although she ran for a few years in college, in 1988, after having her third child, she discovered her passion for running. This passion would lead her to complete 25 marathons, including 20 finishes of the Boston Marathon and winning the 1990 Baystate Marathon. She has also completed the Mount Washington road race (pictured) six times. After teaching nutrition to nursing students for seven years, Cindy joined her sister at Faithful Fitness Studio (then Circuit Workout Plus). There, she found she was able to pass on her passion for fitness to like-minded women. Some of her other passions include red wine, family gatherings, spending time with her grandkids, and cooking great meals.
She has a bachelor’s degree in Health Education from Worcester State College and a master’s degree in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.
