Amanda's enthusiasm for fitness began at an early age: in competitive dance. Raised in The Woodlands, Texas, Amanda went on to attend Southern Methodist University, where she majored in accounting and was a member of the SMU Pom Squad. During her senior year at SMU, she took her first Pure Barre class and instantly fell "in love at first tuck"! She began teaching at Pure Barre Dallas in 2011. As a teacher, she discovered her passion for teaching and helping others gain strength and confidence through Pure Barre. Amanda subsequently opened Pure Barre Allen in 2014 and Pure Barre McKinney in 2015. After marrying a fellow SMU Mustang in 2020 and becoming a military spouse, Amanda sold her studios and moved to El Paso, where they had a baby boy in 2021. Now back in the DFW area, she looks forward to sharing her love of Pure Barre with you!
