Ahad's fitness journey started back in high school where he ran the 800m in track. After high school he changed paths and started weightlifting which eventually moved to power lifting, which he still does competitively. His belief is that with the proper guidance, the hard work, and a good pair of shoes anyone can obtain their fitness goals.
As a fitness professional and enthusiast for over 20 years, Amy has a knack for bringing a tremendous amount of passion and knowledge to our customers. Her energy packs a punch and don't let her petite size fool you. Since 2010, Amy has led the fitness department for an all-girls sleep away camp, Romaca, where she oversees all fitness related activities including running, spinning, strength training and yoga for over 200 campers and manages a staff of 20. Amy previously had a successful TV production career notably focusing on the fitness industry leading on-location productions for the hugely popular ESPN programs Body Shaping, Fitness Beach and Coed Training. Her TV career extended to LA where she helped produced reality-based programs appearing on MTV and also included Dick Wolf-produced Arrest & Trial and Unsolved Mysteries. Westport has been Amy's home for nearly 12 years where she is the fitness and nutrition expert for her two teenage daughters, husband of 20 years and dog, Charlie. During the year, you can often find Amy at her home away from home, YogaSol in Norwalk. Running became one of Amy’s workouts of choice shortly after moving to Westport as a quick way to get a workout in when her girls were younger. Amy loves leading group runs at Camp Romaca and is excited to bring that same energy to Fleet Feet Westport!
