MEET AMY SMITH
Amy Smith is known for her passion for Jesus and her relentless mission to bring Him into the very center of health and fitness. She has over 2 1/2 decades of teaching experience and is the founder of CrossTrain180 FitCamps, a virtual online faith and fitness total program for body, mind, and spirit, as well as, co-owner of Intentional Fitness Center, a 24/7 Christ-centered, full service gym with her husband, Tim.
Amy loves to motivate people to think higher, dream bigger, trust God, and to move out of their comfort zones. She does this through her social media platforms on Facebook @ CrossTrain 180 Fitness Program and @ Amy Smith and Instagram @amysmithfit180, through communication with her daily tribe via text and private Facebook communities, and various public speaking engagements.
Amy believes the Bible is God’s perfect, inerrant, holy, and unchanging Word and relies on inspiration from the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit to guide everything she does, from serving her husband and family, to coaching her clients and creating workouts, to being an influencer on her social media platforms, and serving in her community.
Amy will fire you up through her online weekly LIVE workouts and streaming workout challenges, her fitness video library with over 275 Christ-centered workouts that you can stream anytime, anywhere, delicious and healthy recipes, meal plans, community support, and daily faith and fitness motivation and inspiration.
Amy has appeared on St Louis’ Fox 2 9am Morning Show over two dozen times, showcasing fitness and sharing her faith. She periodically takes her FitCamp classes to the ladies of the Discipleship program at LA Dream Center in Los Angeles, CA. She is also an XO fitness instructor for XO Marriage’s streaming workout program for couples, a ministry of Pastors Jimmy and Karen Evans, formerly called “Marriage Today”.
Amy has been in the fitness world for over 25 years and is a certified personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the Aerobics Fitness Association of America (AFAA). She has a long list of other certifications that include Health Coach, Group Fitness Instructor, Lifestyle Weight Management, Kickboxing, Spinning, Jillian Michael’s BodyShred, and former license in Zumba. She has taken dozens of courses on nutrition and has personally spent hundreds of hours researching and studying nutrition that works for life, God’s way.
Growing up, Amy and her family experienced many hard and devastating challenges that spurred from drug addiction in the home and mental and verbal abuse. Despite the pain and adversity, Amy’s loving mom took her and her sister and brother to church. She recalls the joy she felt from receiving Jesus at a young age and having Him close by her side through all the trials. Her passion to help women get free through the saving grace of Christ, especially, mentally and emotionally, stems from those challenges that occurred early in her childhood and teenage years. She gives God all the glory for healing her heart one step at a time through the disciplines of Bible study, praise, prayer, and daily workouts. (She’s not afraid to admit, as well, that she’s still a work in progress.) Now, it’s her purpose-driven mission to coach and encourage women to live life completely fit in ALL areas, to the fullest, in Jesus!
