Instructor Testimonials

As a newer fitness instructor, having an AMPD Strength certification gave me instant credibility with my gym members for being a “tough” instructor. The reputation this program has around our gym is one of a killer, but ironically, I’ve found it’s the most friendly for teaching/monitoring form and technique, allowing me to offer a weight training class that I can easily customize to any fitness level that walks in. It is truly beautiful to watch a room full of sweaty people executing a clean and press. The AMPD Strong team is the best, explaining every move and how to scale it down or up, along with the right beats to keep you pushing until the end.

AMPD Strength Instructor
I started teaching group fitness classes back in 2002 so I've seen a lot of programs over the years. I love weight training so when I found AMPD Strength and saw that it was choreographed to music, it was a BIG plus for me! Our members have come to love AMPD Strength and it has been a stapled at our gym since 2019!

I love AMPD Strength for its classic AND unique, non-standard barbell exercises! And what makes Strength really special, is the marriage of creative choreography to the diverse tempos and genres of original music straight from the artists!
