An hour with Amy will most likely cost you a few days of recuperation. If you continue working
with her, you are bound to see results. Annie Lozer, 60, friend and client of Mancini, has been training with her for seven years. The trials and tribulations of life have led her to find sanction in exercise. “My father was very sick, and my emotions were strained,” Lozer said. “I had so many duties that I couldn’t find the time. It is important to find the time. It helped me feel better physically and emotionally.” Mancini played a major role in helping Lozer maintain her well-being.
“You really have to force yourself to begin. If you have someone to encourage you, it’s better. Amy is an inspiration. She really is,” Lozer said. Not only is Mancini an inspiration to her clients, but she is also an inspiration to her co-workers. “She does it strictly for the love of it,” Julie Defillip, manager and personal trainer at Streamline Fitness, said. Before owning Streamline Fitness, Mancini was a personal trainer at a number of fitness facilities. She began training Defillip at the gym she would later come to own. “We found out this gym was going under. She wanted to save it,” Defillip said.
