      I originally opened what is now AMP Strength & Conditioning in January of 2013 after being in the medical field for many years. I personally enjoy competitive weightlifting and gymnastic movements. The complex nature of these modalities and their strength requirement requires an understanding of body movement and nutritional science that challenges me to learn more and to be a better coach to my athletes.

 

Health and Fitness is my passion and I love being able to share my knowledge and experience with those who are willing to learn and are hungry for success. 

      Everyone has a different goal, each person is different, and each body moves in a different way with varying levels of efficiency and skill. I am addicted to understanding these subtleties and the nuances of working with each person at their current fitness level.

Shannon Brasovan

We are thrilled to have Shannon at AMP!  Shannon started personal training folks at the YMCA when she was 18. She received her personal training certification at that time through ISSA and has been in the industry since. Shannon has taught in just about every fitness niche you can think of.  She has been certified in Zumba, Tae Boe, Turbo Kick and more.

 

As a professionally trained dancer she taught dance for over a decade and eventually found her way to the wonderful world of yoga and functional fitness.  She and her husband Peter have owned their own CrossFit and yoga studio in Indianapolis, IN for the past decade where she has taught thousands of hours of yoga, personal trained and coached CrossFit throughout that time.

 

She is an ERYT-500 hour certified yoga teacher and has led over 60 people to becoming yoga teachers themselves. She has her L2 CrossFit certification, CrossFit gymnastics, CrossFit Kids and is CPR certified.

 

She now is so happy to be back home in Alabama, coaching and teaching at AMP as well as teaching yoga in downtown Birmingham at the Yoga Lab. When not at AMP you can find her digging in the dirt in her front yard garden off Highway 78!
