Hi, my name is Samantha Jammer, call me Sam!
The society that created “health and fitness” never endorsed true “health” and true “fitness.” It created a society who shamed women who had curves, based worth by the numbers on the scale, and focused the perfect picture on being a skinny side piece. This was the society I grew up in and am now working to change.
After my pregnancies, i needed to become a healthier version of the person I was prior to babies, but I didn’t know how. I started working with a PT who encouraged my goals, didn’t care about the numbers on the scale, but how I felt in my body, worked on strengthening my pelvic floor, and got me to love running again. As i was searching for a fitness program, I knew a true gym wasn’t for me. It was then I found Allied Group Fitness. Since day one, I knew I was in the right group fitness setting. I felt valued for who I was, reminded to work on my mental health, something very hard to do as a social worker, felt encouraged to move my body in any way that felt right in that moment and the best thing, it was from the comfort of my home. 2 years later, we are in person at the AGF studio and the support I feel when i walk in the door is something unprecedented. The environment is energetic, you feel valued as a person, each person is there for themselves-not because society says- and they want to be the best version of themselves, not only physically but mentally.
This warm, loving environment encouraged me to want to be a leader at AGF. My goal each class is to lead other individuals to be the best versions of themselves, physically and mentally, and creating a memorable 45 minutes in their day. My passion for being a leader and assisting others to live their best lives doesn’t start for me at AGF. Its a lifestyle I live as a social worker. I have a strong passion for the population of individuals I have the privilege of working with each and every day at Community Mental Health for Central Michigan. When I’m not working, I am usually hanging out at Allied Group Fitness, browsing the aisles at Target, sunning myself with a cold beverage in hand or chasing my two littles, Wesley and Alice.
Thanks for being here with me. Let’s create a new society of strong individuals.
