Amanda J Richard
I am based in the Scottish Borders, my background career has been in Nursing and Midwifery. I have worked in the fitness industry since 2003 following my Exercise to Music qualification through the NHS Borders Health Promotion Department., and then quickly became hooked on exercising!
Since then I have gone on to do other exercise training courses which now allow me to deliver a variety of different classes to suit different ages and in a variety of settings. Through my exercise classes I found a different way to help people that is positive, happy and fun!
I was awarded a British Empire Medal in the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours For Services to the Health and Wellbeing of Older People in the Scottish Borders.

…Is to inspire people of all ages and abilities to have fun while exercising and
to enjoy the benefits without feeling like it’s hard work! For those who have ever
felt lost and confused when exercising on their own then my fitness classes offer
safe instruction in a friendly atmosphere, and are a good way to meet new people
and have fun whilst exercising. I am a firm believer in the expression “what you
don’t use -
