Amy Nolan

SFG Level I Instructor

Amy has lived in Crested Butte for 15 years and is the mother of three very active children ages 6, 8 and 10.  She is also the founder and Director of the Crested Butte Development Team, a nonprofit organization that supports youth mountain biking in the Gunnison valley.  She would ride her bike 12 months a year if that was possible but enjoys trying to keep up with her kids on skis in the winter. 

Before having my three children in my early 30’s I spent my 20’s thrashing my body doing just about everything, I played really hard and enjoyed every minute of it!  Enter three births in four years, including one emergency c-section, and my core muscles were shot and therefore my lower back was a mess.  It wasn’t until I discovered Kettlebells that “working out” was actually fun and something I looked forward to doing.  I’ve never been someone to go to the gym but rather used my time to be outside.  Now, in my early 40’s I realize that taking care of my body in the gym is just as important as my time outside.  Since I started training with Kettlebells three years ago, I have noticed significant gains in my strength, power, mobility and stability.  I am undoubtedly stronger now than I was in my 20’s and it’s a good thing because keeping up with my kids is not getting any easier
