Edge Fitness training of Tumwater, WA

Meet The Owner & Master Trainer – Amanda Price-Salazar

As a child and young adult, Amanda dealt with obesity weighing in at 280 lbs., low energy, depression, eating disorders, and exercise addiction. She needed help.

She found that help by working with a personal trainer, nutritionist, life coach, and by participating in variety of local sports groups and athletic club fitness classes. She continued on this path by educating herself in the areas of nutrition, weight management, mindset coaching, athletic/sports fitness training, and injury rehabilitation training – she finally made the change to becoming a healthier and happier person.

Today, she is certified personal trainer, nutrition advisor & coach, motivational speaker, and owner of Edge Fitness. Knowing the importance of proper exercise and nutrition habits, Amanda shares her knowledge, motivation, experience and skills by promoting life-long healthy lifestyles.

In August 2006, a motorcycle accident added a new dimension to Amanda’s life. Faced with a broken back, hip, and pelvis, she was determined to recover and stay in shape. Working diligently with a physical therapist for several years while continuing to follow her own self-designed workout program, she gradually grew back to being in shape and even stronger than before the accident.

Amanda’s exuberance for life plus her new found insight and knowledge regarding physical injuries and recovery has aided her to better support her clients as they strive toward achieving their own health and fitness goals.

My name is Andrew Hardy and I have been a Personal Trainer for over 20 years. I’ve provided my training services in large competitive areas such as Orange County, LA, Fresno, and now Olympia.

I have prior experience working with professional athletes, physical therapists, mixed martial artists, and licensed dietitians to help my clients reach their full potential and reach their fitness goals.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise and Sport Science and a Minor in Business. My current personal trainer certification is with the American Council On Exercise (ACE).
I have had the pleasure to have worked with many wonderful professionals, which has helped shaped my knowledge and career in the field of human movement and overall health and fitness.

I work closely with my clients one-on-one, in small groups, and now virtually if needed. I offer accountability, intensity, and motivation for individuals to be as healthy and fit as they can in today’s stressful world.

I provide personal training, sports performance training for adult and youth athletes, and specialize in senior fitness and mobility, as well as pregnancy wellness.

I love being active and I love the personal relationship I form with each client that I work with. Being a personal trainer for over 20 years isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life and my passion is in helping others live healthier lifestyles. I look forward to working with you on your fitness goals!
