“I love helping people find the joy in not only reaching their fitness goals, but actually enjoying what they find out about themselves on their journey to get there.”

“Speaking from experience, Flint Hills Fitness provides a wonderfully unique atmosphere. To be a part of the Fitness Family that has been created here is truly an honor.”
Amy is a certified Yoga Instructor for Flint Hills Fitness. She began her yoga journey working out daily with her friends. Once a week they would add a yoga workout in and Amy was hooked. Not only did it give her an amazing workout, but also she loved how it centered her thinking and helped her focus. A passion was born.

In 2012 Amy received her Level I training through Yogafit. Since that time, Amy has been on a mission to teach yoga to as many people as she could. This is when she joined up with Holly McPeak. "Holly and I were both headed on the same path. We both wanted to create an atmosphere that let people feel like they were a part of a community that cared for them. Not only being healthy on the outside, but also from within."

Since joining Flint Hills Fitness, Amy has received her Level II, III and Anatomy Certification. She is working toward her goal of 500RYT. You can join Amy for Power Yoga, Mixed Level Yoga or Relax and Renew Yoga classes. She also teaches private sessions and small groups.

When Amy is not on the mat you can find her taking care of her busy family of five and volunteering in the community.
Dusti is excited to be a part of the Flint Hills Fitness team as a yoga instructor. As an avid runner and involved in team sports for most of her life, Dusti has always been enthusiastic about physical fitness.

She found that yoga training complemented her running and added a new dimension to her workouts. Now certified as a Level 1 Yogafit instructor, Dusti is bringing her energy and enthusiasm to her classes at Flint Hills Fitness.

"My favorite part about being a fitness and nutrition professional is seeing my clients and the participants in my classes make gains, especially when they didn't think that they could. It's the people at this gym and their energy towards my same passions that motivate me to keep doing what I'm doing. My hope is to touch as many lives as possible with good news about how choosing a healthy lifestyle can empower their daily lives in countless ways!"

When Melissa is not at the gym,  you can find her at home with her two young kids or working on a new craft project.
