Amanda Cook


Amanda moved to Austin in 2020 when the pandemic uprooted her family’s life in New York. Looking for community, and a workout she would enjoy, she found Mod Fitness. Barre became the first place she felt strong in her own right. Finding that her body, and mind, could endure more than she thought. Amanda grew a love for the workout that was changing the way she thought about exercise, her body, and movement for the mind.

After 2 years of dedicated workouts, and working the front desk, she decided to give teaching a try. In 2022 she was trained by Mod Fitness and officially started teaching classes during the summer. Now, Amanda has a passion for helping others learn to enjoy daily movement to empower and strengthen themselves.

When not at Mod, Amanda is a financial analyst for a tech start-up. She lives in Austin with her husband, Seth, and pup, Scout, and you can catch them taking walks through all the best neighborhoods in town or by Town Lake.
