Get started and share your love of fitness!

AMPD Strong offers certifications for group fitness instructor training that you can access right from your home or join us for a live, in person training. Featuring 6 different formats from yoga and barre-inspired classes to our flagship kettlebell training, there’s a style for everyone.

Everybody can become “fit”

At AMPD Strong, we know that what you look like does not dictate your level of physical fitness — any body at any age can be “fit”.

It’s with those beliefs that we created AMPD Strong to promote body positivity and make you feel confident in yourself. From creating a system that can easily be followed from your living room to including modifications for moves, we encourage you to challenge your body at your own pace.
