A Look Inside Fit Justice
Meet our head trainer Amy, her philosophies and how she helps hundreds of people each day.
Amy is the owner & head trainer at Fit Justice. She has her BA in Justice Studies from Arizona State University and is an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. With 5 years of experience training clients, Amy is confident in her ability to get people the results they desire whether it’s in person out of her private studio in Westbrook, ME or remotely via online services. Amy’s passion to lead people to long term success with their health & fitness keeps her motivated to change more lives everyday.
Rachel is a yoga instructor who has been teaching all around Maine for the past 4 years following her graduation from USM with a BA in Anthropology. A journey to Denver, Colorado in 2013 brought her to Axis Yoga where she completed her 200 hour teacher training. She has since been teaching ever since at fitness centers, studios, and resorts to shed light on yoga for beginners, and challenge more advanced practitioners. Yoga’s ability to heal is emphasized in her teaching through building heat and using it to transform and lengthen muscles. Rachel’s core passions lie in sharing her love for yoga with anyone willing to learn, and furthering her own understanding through teaching and experimentation.
Local business plug: after my back surgery I was prescribed PT, but because I did PT for a full year BEFORE the surgery in an attempt to avoid it, there wasn’t much my insurance would cover (and I was unemployed and on COBRA at that point ). PT was expensive by the hour, and the Dr. said I should be going twice a week. It just wasn’t doable for me.
Instead I sought out Amy Currie, owner of Fit Justice in Westbrook as a personal trainer. She has developed a custom program for me based on increasing flexibility and strengthening my core (which protects my back). I’ve been going for twice a week since I was “healed”. My back is never going to be 100% again, but, in no small part due to her patience and willingness to work with me; I’m able to lead what I’d call an active life with a crazy schedule.
She’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.
If you’re looking to get back in shape, continue your fitness journey, or strengthen yourself around a specific issue. Give her a shot.
When I first met Amy I was still in the midst of my eating disorder. I was constantly struggling with the want to be strong and healthy while thinking I needed to be stick thin and restrictive in my diet. After getting approval for a personal trainer from my therapist I began looking for someone who could help me meet my goals at a pace that was safe and healthy. I stumbled upon Amy’s page on instagram and decided to email her just looking for general guidance on beginning weight training. However, what I thought would be a short exchange of emails turned into a client/trainer relationship and also a friendship. Amy’s guidance, knowledge, patience, and understanding were absolutely influential in helping me develop a healthy body image for the first time in my life. I have been training as an online client with Amy for approximately 3 years now and I will never consider finding anyone else to help me reach my fitness goals. She is all around a tremendously wonderful human being and I recommend her to anyone and everyone I know who will listen.
If you’re looking for a simple, enjoyable and non intimidating nutrition service, Amy is your girl! She is so knowledgeable in the field of nutrition and really helps you in any way possible to get the results you want. She is very accommodating to your schedule and works with you for what is best to make the process simple and not a headache. If you think online nutrition services don’t work because there isn’t any face to face conversations, weigh ins and accountability, you’re wrong. Amy’s system works and her communication is top notch. Her nutrition guidance is comfortable and non intimidating because she understands how life can be sometimes. Her “listen to your body” ideology gets you to a point where you are comfortable not crunching numbers all the time making sure you hit your macros and you can just relax and enjoy food with friends and family while you know you can feel good about what you eat. This isn’t a lose weight fast and non healthy way of losing weight. It’s a way of slowly getting used to the lifestyle change in food, exercise, supplements and sleep. Two thumbs up for her! Participating in her pizza Friday’s ain’t too bad either!
