  • at 9:06 pm on 9.15.14
    I wish I could summarize the role Amanda has played on so many lives in such a short paragraph. Amanda is constantly improving and refining the physical and emotional fitness of not only those whom attend her class, but also herself. She has sustained such a dogged determination that makes her an indispensable fitness mentor! I believe Amanda has truly unmatched potential for progression to the highest levels of fitness empowerment. Amanda possess the innate ability to lead people to push themselves harder and longer than they thought possible. She has reminded me that it’s not just about the individual mental fortitude. “It comes from your heart! It’s what’s inside and how bad you want it.” Her energy and drive is unmatched. The tools she brings to the table continue to amaze and motivate all those around her. It would be a mistake to overlook this Fitness superstar!

  • at 11:09 pm on 9.14.14
    I began two years ago with GFA Fitness and Amanda and here I am two years later amazed at how far I have come along with her guidance and support. I am so much stronger and feeling so much healthier today than I did two years ago! She deserves to be the Next Fitness Star!!
  • at 7:22 pm on 9.13.14
    Amanda really is amazing when I met her three years ago I knew I wanted to do personal training with her because I wanted to lose weight. She has always been supportive of me and encouraged me that I can do it and not to focus on the number but on being healthy that is what's important. I know that I struggled alot in the beginning because I don't think I was truly ready for a change. Then this year I contacted her again and started working out with her again and taking classes with her and I thought now I was ready to change my life. Then one day when I was in a session with Amanda I was able to do box jumps which I thought I could not do but she said I could and she was right!! I realized that if I can do this I can do anything I truly believe that this was the epiphany I needed to keep going and never give up. Amanda also is very supportive when I'm in class she encourage s me to keep going and I can do it even when I'm ready to stop. I think she deserves to be the next fitness star because she cares about every aspect of her clients so she can help them reach their full potential in the best way for them. :)

    I'm not sure where to start as to why I love GFA Fitness and Amanda... I was an athlete all growing up and then I stopped playing but kept eating. I then had two children and continued to eat for two. At my top I reached over 300lbs. After losing about 40lbs with gastric bypass I decided to try and be an athlete again. I joined GFA fitness after watching my kids have a blast at her kids fitness classes. After I finished her first class I felt like a million bucks! Granted I couldn't walk or sit on the toilet for that matter for more than two day, I went back 3 more times that week. Amanda just gets it. She doesn't care if you weigh 300lbs and can't walk up a flight of stairs or if you are already an elite athlete. She meets you where you are and pushes you beyond any thing you ever thought you could do. She has been with me through highs and lows in the past two years. I would not have lost over 100lbs and be as healthy as I am today without Amanda and GFA Fitness. Whether she becomes the Next Fitness Star or not, it is only a matter of time before this woman takes over the fitness world.

  • at 6:32 pm on 9.10.14
    Amanda Kelly is the best trainer of them all! I was nervous and afraid to begin a regular fitness routine and then I met Amanda and she supported me through the entire process. Amanda built up my endurance and strength and most importantly, she gave me the self confidence to keep going and achieve wonderful results. Amanda is creative, innovative and inspirational. I believe that Amanda Kelly IS the Next Fitness Star!
  • at 4:55 pm on 9.10.14
    Fitness through Personal Training is in Amanda Kelly's blood. No one is more committed to her clients than Amanda. She combines nutritional advice into the fitness schedule to better help you achieve your goal. She never misses a beat and is open to any new ideas available to her through suggestions from her clients as well as through her research to update her own fitness goals. She is totally engaged in the fitness world and is a true believer that the more fit you are the better your life will be.
  • at 11:09 pm on 9.09.14
    Amanda really cares about her clients and always checks in with them to make sure they are ok if they missed a couple workouts. She encourages you and never gives up on you no matter what. She is dedicated to making sure her clients are healthy and always changes up the workout to keep it fun and exciting!
  • at 11:05 pm on 9.09.14
    Amanda is truly amazing. She is always upbeat and positive. She always has a smile on her face. She believes in every one of her members. I couldn't even do a push up when I started, but after a month of classes, I noticed I was getting stronger and seeing muscles I never saw before. She never makes you feel bad if you need to take a break, always shows you modifications if you need them, and if you don't make it to class, she is on the phone asking where you are. Her non-stop energy inspires you to push yourself harder, and her classes are never boring. She makes you want to work out, to actually look forward to working out, and makes you want to be healthy and fit. From the minute the music starts, you are already pumped to work out and it continues throughout the workout. If she sees someone starting to struggle, she moves so that she is next to the person, to help them get through. She is always offering training tips and you can usually find a healthy recipe printed out for you when you check in. Fitness is her life and it shows. No one has more passion for what she does than Amanda, and it is contagious! It is what motivates her members and keep them coming back for more!! GFA ROCKS!

    You go girl!!!!
  • at 1:45 am on 9.09.14
    Amanda Kelly is an amazing trainer. Before working out with Amanda I HATED working out. Now that I am a GFA member I have never enjoyed a gym so much in my life. I feel like I am constantly learning new things about how to push my body for the results that I want. Even after taking some time off I know that Amanda will be right there pushing me and helping me do my best. She absolutely, without a doubt, deserves to be your next fitness star!!!
  • at 1:31 pm on 8.22.14
    Amanda is one of a kind. Totally committed to keeping her clients in the best physical shape. She is also devoted to the youth of her town and has developed a program to engage them in how to get fit through exercise and proper eating habits. You are the best Amanda.

  • at 12:28 pm on 8.09.14
    Yes, Erica Robertiello is my daughter, but she is an amazingly talented trainer. Her vision is one that will last a lifetime - that fitness is all about feeling your best - not only building muscles or "getting ripped." She has helped many of her clients to correct postural deficiencies by building core strength. Those women now stand straight, tall and strong.She has an amazing talent for creating work-outs that are effective and fun - sometimes you don't even think you've worked out until the next day. She has my vote - and has earned the "thumbs up" among all her clients.
  • at 11:43 pm on 8.03.14
    Amanda is an inspiration for anyone around her! She is the best.
  • at 4:01 am on 8.03.14
    Amanda is a amazing. She is someone people can relate to. She balances a healthy life style and family life so well. She is someone I try to model myself after. When I struggle with my fitness goals Amanda keeps me moving like no other. She is a true motivator and I am so happy to have someone like her kick my butt into shape (literally) especially when I've hit a lull. She is the next big thing. Amanda is more that a fitness trainer, enthusiast, or coach, she is a true motivator who wants to see people live the happiest and healthiest life possible and she will be your biggest fan. She will be her fans biggest fan. Xoxo #teamAmanda :)
  • at 6:13 pm on 8.02.14
    Amanda is so the next Jillian Michaels.
  • at 2:28 am on 8.02.14
    Amanda is a Rockstar!! I started training with her in May of this year. I had not exercised or worked out in over 8 years. She challenges me and motivates me while cheering me on when I need that extra push. Her program works!! She's has helped me build up my strength and tone up. She designs awesome programs based on your individual needs. I appreciate her passion for fitness and healthy lifestyle. She is truly an inspiration and I am so happy I found her!
  • at 3:05 pm on 8.01.14
    Before meeting Amanda I could not do basic jumping jacks for 30 seconds. I now do boot camps, run races and so much more...all things I never dreamed of doing. She motivates you and makes you believe in yourself. It is never an option to quit or give up, and she helps you realize everything you are capable of accomplishing. I can't imagine my life without fitness and I have Amanda to thank for that!
  • at 1:38 pm on 8.01.14
    Amanda has a passion for fitness. She loves what she does which is inspirational and motivating for her students and others.
  • at 10:37 pm on 2.18.14
    I've been going to GFA for years now and love it. Amanda is inspiring and motivating. Amanda offers challenging classes and the best instructors. I am stronger, more toned and have built up my endurance, all of which I did not achieve working out by myself. I am so lucky my daughter gave me this membership for my birthday!
  • at 5:02 pm on 1.17.14
    I have been a member of GFA since it opened. I did not join to lose weight. I joined to build strength and muscle. At GFA the classes are not like your typical aerobic classes. At other gyms I found myself getting bored with the classes and not feeling very challenged. At GFA I get pushed to workout hard and maximize every workout. Although, I am taking group classes, Amanda and the other instructors have the ability of making you feel like you are being personally trained. They know how to push the advanced members to their max and offer modifications for the members just starting out. I have definitely built up my endurance and strength at GFA. The best part of all, the workouts are never boring!
  • at 3:51 pm on 1.17.14
    I've been going to Amanda's gym GFA Fitness for over 2 years now and I feel like she understands how to push and make us stronger. I feel stronger than ever. Between kickboxing, GFA 100s, bootcamps, I've lost the extra weight I gained in college and I'm motivated to stay on track and staying healthy. I don't think I would be where I am today without her, her fitness instructors and her gym. I have nothing but good things to say about her and her gym, not only that, I'm very thankful to have a great gym a part of my life. She's a great motivator, mother, and friend.
  • at 8:47 pm on 1.16.14
    I'm Active Duty Air Force stationed in Florida. I discovered Amanda's studio while on leave in Massachusetts last year. I now make it a point to take classes at Amanda's studio whenever I'm in the area. All of the classes and all of the instructors are amazing and extremely challenging yet can be scaled based on your fitness level. Even as an out of towner that only stops in for a week or two a year, I'm treated just like any other long term client, given advice, feedback, and an amazing challenge. To top it all off, Amanda and her trainers do all of the workouts with their clients, so you have realistic yet challenging workouts. They know what they are asking their clients to do and are willing to do it with you. If that's not motivation, I don't know what it is.
  • at 2:25 am on 12.26.13
    I have been going to GFA for a year now . I'm so much stronger now and my cardiovascular endurance couldn't be any better. I have done several obstacle 5k's and could have never done them before going to Amanda 's gym. She also does some of the races with us and encourages everyone running to try their best and finish the race .The workouts are never the same and each and every class is VERY challenging. She is a genuine person and loves what she does .
  • at 10:48 pm on 12.14.13
    Amanda creates a welcoming environment for the members. I've only been a member for a few months, but have felt at ease in her gym. She offers a variety of classes for all fitness levels -- which is awesome. She knows our names, is tough, but pushes individuals to achieve what they thought they couldn't. I've not yet attempted the GFA 100, but when I do, I know I'll be supported an encouraged to do the best I can. Her gym is great, the instructors she employs are awesome, and she loves what she does! At 43, I've never been a great fan of exercise, but in part to Amanda and her gym, I've been able to shed some pounds and become more FIT....Thanks Amanda!
  • at 1:30 am on 12.12.13
    I am so excited for this opportunity for's about time the rest of the world finds out about her! As a soon to be 50 year old woman who had never exercised in her life it was going to take someone pretty special to get me to commit, and Amanda was that person. We started with some personal training and she knew exactly how to push me without pushing me over the edge. I am now a regular at GFA classes and she continues to keep an eye on me and encourage me along. I never feel self conscious and love the support I get from other members and trainers. A year later, I can't imagine training anywhere else.
  • at 2:10 am on 12.11.13
    I met Amanda about 4yrs ago. Until then I had tried to workout at different gyms with no results. Amanda's motivation, workout formats and commitment to bring a feel of personnel training to a class scenario made a huge difference in my life. My husband lost over 75lbs under her instruction. I personally have made huge advances in my shape and endurance. Her training has shown me not just how to workout but it gave me a whole new lifestyle! She stays on top of every single person who comes to her gym. She is compassionate and truly loves what she does. No one around has developed classes or trains like she does. That is a fact not an opinion. It doesn't matter what age, level or situation your in, she will get you in shape. This is her passion and goal in life. She has not only become my trainer but a dear friend. She deserves to be the next top trainer! Her GFA 100 will be the next big workout that millions will be lucky to try! We support and love you Amanda! Thanks for all you've done for us and for all your about to do for everyone else!
  • at 7:50 pm on 12.10.13
    I have been going to GFA for about 9 months. Amanda and the rest of her staff are great. It's about a half hour ride, but I'm so happy my friends convinced me to try this gym out. The work-outs are different every class, so it is never boring. We have done races and fundraisers together. It's a blast and Amanda's always introducing new things to keep us coming. Keep up the GREAT job Amanda !!!
  • at 2:35 am on 12.10.13
    GFA is the best gym I've ever been to, and I've joined many. You are challenged at every class. I love every class I take and continue to see results month after month. Amanda and the other GFS instructors are amazing, motivating, and there to make sure you get the most out of their classes....from beginner to advanced athlete. Amanda is hard working, creative, motivating and a wife and mom of two that wants to see everyone that walks through that door love fitness as much as her. And thanks to her, I do now! Joining GFA was best thing I ever did for myself and my husband!
  • at 1:57 am on 12.10.13
    I have been going to Amanda's studio since it opened and I have never looked back. Amanda is a hard trainer, she doesn't let you quit. She is like a mother who never takes her eye off of you. If you are tired she gives you encouragement. If you think you are going to stop doing an exercise she always chimes in at the right moment to let you know she is watching and that she is not going to accept quitting and that you shouldn't either. I remember I hadn't been to a class in a week once and she called my house to find out where I had been. Now that is commitment!
  • at 9:10 pm on 12.09.13
    I am a member at GFA fitness and take a lot of Amanda's classes! I am 38 and have tried to join many gyms in my life. None of them have ever clicked with me until I joined GFA! Amanda takes a personal interest in each one of her clients/members. She knows every single one of our names and knows if we don't show up for a few days (and will even send a little note of encouragement to get you back on track). That kind of friendship/family feel is one of the things that keeps me coming back to GFA. But I also love the encouragement you get at GFA by all the trainers and also members during class! It's great to feel like you get to work out with a bunch of friends and not be judged! The classes are very challenging but with Amanda's don't give up encouragement I make it through! My favorite class is the GFA100. You just never know what you are going to get when you walk in the door except an amazing full body workout!
