Stay fit and active by working with our partnering trainers and volunteers!
A2A3 hopes to help individuals and families stay fit and active in solidarity with those who have ALS by creating an effect opposite of the disease’s effects – and to help raise money for those fighting the disease.
To help people train or learn new activities, we have enlisted the help of wonderful volunteers willing to share their time, energy, and knowledge to A2A3. These partners are happy to help you get out and moving and may occasionally organize group activities as well. Please contact them if you are interested in getting advice or perhaps helping them plan activities – and please contact us if you are interested in volunteering your own expertise to A2A3!
A2A3 Volunteer Trainers:
Amy Burnett (firstname.lastname@example.org) Pilates, general fitness
Amy graduated from Bucknell University with a B.A. in Psychology where she was an athlete in track and field. After several years of working in technology and consulting, Amy decided to turn her interest of practicing pilates into a new profession. She is certified in STOTT Pilates, and has also done certifications through Power Pilates and the Goodson Parker Wellness Center in New York City. She has enjoyed being exposed to many styles of pilates and is dedicated to expanding her knowledge so she can continue to meet her clients’ needs.
Scott Dunberg (email@example.com) Swimming, cycling, running
I am an avid swimmer, bicyclist and triathlete, and I have coached and competed in all three sports. I enjoy helping individuals accomplish their personal goals which they may have thought were unobtainable. I am especially proud to be associated with the “Tri-State Trek,” a 270 mile three-day bicycle ride from Boston to New York. This is an inspiring, challenging and often life changing experience. I hope some of the individuals I work with might want to participate in next year’s event as their personal goal, or perhaps plan a mid-west Trek!
Dave Lowenschuss (firstname.lastname@example.org) Running
I have been running and participating in races for over 20 years. After completing my first marathon over 16 years ago I realized how much I would have benefited from someone mentoring/coaching me in my first attempt. There were so many things I did not understand – from dealing with chafing issues (Vaseline would have saved me a lot of pain that day!) to proper nutrition to post-race recovery. I enjoy helping individuals set a training program that is ideal for their experience level and their life-style.
Anuja Rajendra (email@example.com) Fitness through Dance, general fitness
Anuja is the founder of BollyFit, which provides exercise through dance. Anuja is an experienced dancer who has trained in classical and modern Indian dance beginning at the age of six. Anuja developed BollyFit after gaining 60 and 45 pounds after her respective pregnancies. She was looking for a way to feel healthy, without dreading exercise. Combining her passion for dance and her fitness goals, she began to teach fitness classes through BollyFit.
Jennifer Rowley (firstname.lastname@example.org) Running, walking, strength training, general fitness
Jennifer is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and ACE Certified Pre- & Post-Natal Fitness Trainer, currently working as a Personal Trainer at Coach-Me-Fit. She has experience working with people at all fitness levels as they train for health or for an event. She is committed to helping her clients stay motivated so that training is as much fun as it is work.
Corey Ryder (email@example.com) Swimming, biking, running, walking
I have always been an active individual, by biking, swimming and running around from a young age. I completed my Bachelors degree in Sports Medicine/Exercise Science at Eastern Michigan University. I have continued my interest in movement science by working in physical therapy and currently in Pediatric Cardiology. It is a passion of mine to evaluate an individual’s physical body movements and through tips and motivation, help to make aerobic initiatives more understood and possible. It is the ability to be aerobic through movement that gets people across the Finish Line!
