An Ohio native, Amanda Kloots has played many roles since moving to New York: Broadway dancer, Radio City Rockette, head trainer at Body by Simone, and did we mention dessert blogger?
Amanda’s classes are a mix of dance and cross training with special attention on form and details to create a unique, fun workout that will have you drenched in sweat in minutes! Her creativity is unmatched, her energy is contagious, and her positivity everlasting. No matter your experience or skill level, you’ll be captivated by Amanda’s radiant persona and empowering attitude. You will leave her classes feeling encouraged and like you’ve just gained a new best friend. And a damn cool one at that!
Amanda developed the jump rope method after years of trying different ways to stay in killer shape. She fell in love with the jump rope after discovering it’s the quickest, most effective way to get a full body workout in. She spent years creating ways to use it for more that just jumping. It’s the ultimate prop to have with you at anytime, on any trip, and on any day.
We caught up with Amanda while she was in LA promoting her NYC jump rope class, The Rope, and asked her to tell us the seven things making her life better currently. This is what she shared:
1 | Emergen-C Super Orange— My morning always starts with a cold glass of this vitamin packed drink. It’s the first thing I put in my body to get refueled after sleep and get my body started.
2 | Sakara Life— This food delivery system fuels my body every day in all the best ways. The 100% organic plant based meal plan makes sure I have all the nutrients and good fats I need to keep me going. I love the beauty and night water to start and end my day as well as the detox tea for an afternoon reset. I looked forward to every meal with Sakara Life!
3 | Skin Laundry— These 15 minute laser facials are the BEST! I walk in looking tired and dehydrated and leave with gorgeous glowing skin! It’s a face transformation that you can’t believe until you try! I’m addicted!
4 | My family– My parents have always supported me in everything I’ve done. I also have four siblings who are my best friends.
5 | Ballet class– Growing up I took ballet class six days a week. I love taking class in NYC because often times American Ballet Theatre principals such as Misty Copeland or Julie Kent are right beside me. If that isn’t inspiration I don’t know what is! Ballet is my yoga. It resets my body. I especially love Nancy Bielski’s class at Steps on Broadway.
6 | DoTerra Slim and Sassy Essential Oil— This metabolic essential oil contains grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon. It helps support a healthy metabolism in a natural way! Add to sparkling water for the perfect afternoon tonic! It smells amazing and tastes great.
7 | Reebok jump rope– I love having my rope on me at all times. It’s the best piece of equipment to pack in a suitcase and literally a workout I can do anywhere. I love the way my body feels after jump roping. My heart rate is up, stamina challenged, and I’ve worked my whole body with one piece of equipment. When I master a new trick or jump for an extra song I feel empowered!
