Amanda Yankovich - CrossFit 519

Amanda Yankovich

L1 CrossFit Coach, BA

| I am from West Alexander, PA. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from Waynesburg University. I never really exercised until I moved to Maryland to teach kindergarten. Going to the gym after school was a release for me and I really enjoyed it. It was only after I moved back to the area, got married, and had a baby that my exercise program became non-existent. Out of pure frustration, I reached out to my cousin for help and began CrossFit in October 2012. It was the best decision I ever made. It has completely changed my health and my outlook on fitness. I decided to take my L1 certification because I want to do for others what my cousin did for me. I believe that anyone can be a CrossFit athlete, and I hope to help others on that journey.
