About the Instructor
Hi everyone! My name is Amber Petruccy and I was raised in Harford County, Maryland. I attended college at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, graduating with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 2012. It was during my time at Etown that I attended a cardio-kickboxing class and my love for fitness was inspired.
For five years after college, I lived in Delaware, Maryland, and Connecticut before settling in Staunton, Virginia almost 3 years ago. Despite the nomadic lifestyle, my dedication to fitness never wavered. After exploring cardio and weight training on my own, I spent almost 3 years training in Crossfit gyms. It was here that I fell in love with Olympic Weightlifting. After leaving Crossfit, I earned my USAW Level 1 certification and have coached weightlifting for almost 3 years. Currently, I am pursuing a Personal Training Certificate through NASM.
While maintaining a consistent fitness routine and continually working to increase my fitness education, I have been a classroom teacher for nine years and am very excited to combine my two big passions: teaching and fitness! I am looking forward to continuing my fitness education and being a member of the Phoenix team!
