Hello! I’m Amanda. I’m a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Army wife currently living in Texas with my husband and two rambunctious dogs. I strive to have an active lifestyle where fitness is an investment I make for health and happiness. I hope to help others do the same by sharing my experiences and information I have learned. I also hold an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, so I may write about both fitness and psychology topics as well as my personal experiences. Please note that any articles on this site are either my own experience or opinion and are not nor intended to be a substitute for the advice of a medical professional.
I share my experiences living in Germany, traveling, completing grad school, and more on my blog Embracing Adventure as well as some highlight photos on this Instagram. In addition to blogging, I write fiction and poetry. You can access many of my publications as well as find out more about my other pursuits on AmandaPapenfus.com.
