Amanda Brown ~ Beautiful Knockout

Hello, I’m Amanda Brown and thank you for visiting Beautiful U Fitness University’s website. I am a certified personal trainer and group instructor through IFA.  I love martial arts and have been studying Kempo for more than five years. I am currently a brown belt level three and an instructor assistant at the dojo where I train. I love lifting heavy weights, plyometics and rest-based cardio. I have extensive education and training in helping people make positive changes in their lives.


I have struggled with my weight since I was 22 and at my heaviest weighed more than 215 pounds. I have tried many diets and fitness programs throughout the years. I found success with some of them however it was temporary and the weight came back. I became depressed about my situation and was very self-critical with my inability to reach my goals. In 2008, after a long beak in martial arts (12 years), I realized that I needed to return to my training in Kempo. I had stopped going for a variety of reasons. I started experiencing small successes and in 2011 a friend challenged me to achieve one of my goals, a bikini competition. I started my competition training and competed in my first bikini competition in April of 2012, thanks to the help and support of my family, friends and my coach.

I am dedicated to helping women reach their health and fitness goals.  I believe that we all have the power to change. I understand that the way to a healthy body is not only through fitness but by developing a healthy mind. I love spending time with my husband (you will catch us out at car shows in our hometown) and our dogs, Raven, Buster & Ava. I enjoy reading, photography, being outdoors, dirt bike riding and driving my 51 Chevy Truck, Ol’ Blue.
