Hello my name is Deanna Amodie and I am the owner of Light of Day Wellness, LLC located on the Southwest Coast of Florida. I am a Certified Lifestyle & Weight Loss Management Specialist and Personal Trainer through the National Endurance Strength Training Association (NESTA), as well as a Certified Group Instructor & Facilitator. I have been a Personal Trainer since 2004 and resided in New York in my earlier career. I was the owner of a Women’s Fitness Center for over 8 years on Long Island and now have continued my training career here in Florida. During my seventeen year career I trained with clients from ages 16 through 80, each of them with different bodies, different goals and different abilities. My programs provide support and proper instruction to guide individuals on their fitness journey safely and effectively. I am committed to helping individuals improve their quality of life and well-being through exercise.
Over the years I began working primarily with those in their forties, fifties and sixties as well as providing routines for those in their seventies and eighties. I now specialize in exercise programming for ages 40 - 70+. While training my clients and personalizing their programs I found that they each had a lot in common. Some exercises were no longer serving them in a positive way. It was obvious that their bodies were no longer welcoming high impact, fast paced, jumping moves they were used to doing in their younger years. I then began specializing in program design more suitable for my clients as they moved through life. I began designing lower impact workouts that did not require high intensity movement or lots of jumping while still keeping workouts challenging and results driven. This proved great success among my clients. This brought my trainings to another level being able to provide specific age groups with exercise programs they can do safely and effectively. Keeping in mind, lower impact does not mean easier. It means that we are honoring our body with exercise more suitable for us and any ailments we may have. My programs always give options for Beginner to Advanced based on a client’s fitness level so they always feel challenged.
Having been an overweight teen, diet and exercise became a part of my life at a young age. I had many struggles with my weight through my twenties and can understand and empathize with those looking for a program that can make a difference in their life. I believe my ability to relate to my clients, having been in most of their shoes, is what makes me effective and successful. To truly be able to say to a client “I know how you feel” and “I know how hard this can be” brings comfort to them and to me. For more information or to schedule a Consultation click here.
In 2014 I decided to grow my business and assist people not only with their fitness and weight loss but with their mind and spirit as well, bringing mind & body together as a whole. Although we can look and feel great from the outside, I realized that most people where not so great on the inside. I thought if we are going to work so hard on how we look on the outside why would we not focus on feeling great on the inside?
I then decided to get certified and practice Energy Healing. Receiving Energy Healing in my past for trauma and some ailments, I realized the amazing benefits and it inspired me to begin practicing on my own. Through the years of doing my own self-healing, meditation, peace and calm became part of my daily life. With much practice, it opened me up to a completely different way of thinking and living. It has been life changing for me and it only feels right to share it with my clients through inner healing and empowerment. For more information or to schedule a Healing Session click here.
In 2020 following the Covid-19 shutdown of the fitness industry it was imperative that I come up with a way for my clients to stick to their workouts without being able to meet me for training. The pandemic forced me to step out of my comfort zone and begin offering programs online so clients can work with me from the privacy and safety of their own home. I developed two video streaming channels FIT OVER 40 and STRONG OVER 70 that can be accessed directly from my website for a small monthly fee. The channels grew successfully and I now can provide another level of service for those who prefer AT HOME workouts. For more information or to start a FREE Video Trial click here.
As you review my programs and services you will see there is something for everyone, no matter what you are seeking to enhance your well-being. I am here to provide the guidance and support you need. I look forward to sharing my experience and expertise with you.
