Amanda Wegner

I first came MOTUS, though it was called something else at the time, as a private training client, looking to lose weight and improve my health. Through following the nutrition guidelines and training with BJ, I lost over 80 pounds and gained a new love for fitness and healthy living. Then, in May 2011, I attended a kettlebell sport workshop. I was attending “just to learn”. By the end, I was hooked!

In 2013 I became a member of the first official Team USA and traveled to Russia to compete in the World Championships.

Right now I am working abroad as I continue my studies.  I work remotely for Kori and BJ both as a coach for some of our kettlebell athletes as well as some administrative duties.

Outside of training, I am a recent graduate Magna Cum Laude of the University of North Texas (Fall 2013) with a degree in International Studies, minor in Russian. I have worked as a Russian tutor at my university, and briefly volunteered to work with bilingual children at the Russian School of Dallas.
