Amanda Adams Rowland
Amanda Adams is a former International fitness cover model, certified personal trainer, and co-founder of Hot & Healthy Habits. Without a whole lot of help, Amanda took a blog and her passion to make fitness and nutrition less confusing, and turned it into a thriving business with a social media following in the hundreds of thousands.
After several years of selling diet programs, promoting supplements companies, and supporting an industry that profited off women's failures, she now spends her time educating women on the harmful effects of diets and the impossible standards that the fitness industry places on women.
Amanda's work is driven by a passion to see diverse and inclusive marketing initiatives that create space for women to feel welcomed and encouraged as they navigate their own self-acceptance journey.
In addition to her work at Hot & Healthy Habits, Amanda enjoys trying new brunch spots in Nashville, listening to podcasts on her drives back to Atlanta to visit her and her husband's family, and lying on the floor dreaming with her friend and co-founder, Ander Wilson.
