Let's take a moment to stop and ask...

What's possible?

My name is Amy West, and I help women and men of all ages to uncover their bodies’ innate wisdom and achieve the wellness they seek.


Personal Training

Whether you’re navigating the aging process, dealing with chronic pain, or are a dancer finding your way after an injury, let’s get you on the path towards where you want to be.

Wellness Coaching

If you have the best of intentions when it comes to your health but feel you lack the necessary “willpower” to achieve results, wellness coaching could be for you.

Teaching Dance

A Lecturer in Dance at The University of Michigan, School of Music, Theatre & Dance since 2009, I offer master classes and private dance coaching for dancers of all levels.


A passion for movement & wellness

Movement, I’ve realized, is the thread weaving itself through everything I’ve been passionate about in life.

As a professional ballet dancer for 24 years and a Lecturer in Dance at the University of Michigan, School of Music, Theatre & Dance since 2009, movement of the body has always been at the heart of what I do.

And now, as a Mayo Clinic-certified & National Board-certified Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer, I love working with my clients to encourage movement towards our best selves in all facets: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Through Amy West Wellness Coaching I found relief from hip and lower back pain which I'd assumed was just something I had to live with. Amy suggested a set of very do-able strengthening exercises that had an almost immediate positive effect.

Amy has helped me to reshape and enhance my ballet technique from a healthy pedagogical standpoint, and her attention to detail has inspired some of the most rapid improvement I've experienced.

Amy West is perfectly equipped as a health and wellness coach not only through her extensive career as a dancer, an educator, and mother, but also through her innate ability to connect with others, inquire about their true dreams, and ask them to reach for their true potential.
