Village: About the founder
Village was founded on the belief that parents and children should be active together along side peers in their community!
Amy's daughter was born in 2014 which was life changing, as it is for all parents, but also drove Amy to take a leap of faith professionally. As she struggled to find activities that were fun and rewarding for her AND her daughter ViLLAGE was born. A class that offered parents an effective, results oriented, body weight workout modified for any fitness level in a non judgmental environment. A class that was appropriate and welcomed kids/parents in any mood and was stimulating for children through all of their developmental changes. Amy also saw the value of parents connecting and being social with their children and one another, laughing, sharing and becoming a part of a community or a ViLLAGE. A place to share a healthy lifestyle, be a positive role model, and bond with children that will begin to combat the rising childhood obesity epidemic. Also, a workout that did not require the children to be in a stroller, as Amy's baby was not a fan.
Amy's love for health and fitness took on a new life after she moved to the bay area in 2004. She was involved and initiated health and wellness activities while working at different organizations. Such as, she started a softball team, put together different employee health challenges, and volunteered with her employers national health and wellness team. Amy also competed with an outrigger canoe paddling team and a whale boat rowing team around the bay area. As well as ran multiple 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, and a marathon. Then had much success and studied resistance training while 'training' for her wedding. She also loves, practices and incorporates yoga into the class curriculum. Amy was passionate and dedicated when engaged in all of these activities and discovered the effectiveness of properly designed programs for different activities.
