Top 3 Reasons To Work With A Trainer
1. Doing vs. Showing. Personal trainers show you how to use exercise machines, teaching you the principles of exercise that will stay with you for the rest of your life
2. Pacing for Success. Trainers will teach you the correct pace and intensity level that will get you into great shape and get you fast results.

My love for fitness started back when I was young. I was a high school and then college wrestler, which taught me how to compete but also how to train athletes to compete. For seven years I coached high school wrestling at Indian Hills in New Jersey. Over years of coaching, our training evolved around strength and explosive methods and General Physical Preparedness (GPP).
The decision to open Signature Health & Fitness, back in 2012, came from not only my love for fitness but also to try and create something in my hometown that allowed people to get fit and healthy at a reasonable price. I have seen transformation from people who have never worked out a day in their lives to student athletes who have been training for years. I believe working out can be for anyone which is why I have created programs that work for all fitness levels.
Education And Certifications
ISSA Certified Fitness Trainer
My name is Amanda Lane and I am a Personal Trainer at Signature Health & Fitness. I am originally from California but have lived all over the US as well as in Canada. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Major in Marketing & Minor in Information Systems.
I have always had a passion for fitness and nutrition - I grew up playing sports, I was constantly working out, my first job was at a gym and when I wasn't in season for a sport I was playing I was doing stats for other teams. When my family opened up Signature Health & Fitness in Dubuque I decided it was something I wanted to be a part of any way that I could. This passion led to my decision to become a certified Personal Trainer. About a year after I became a trainer I decided to get certified in Yoga Up (yoga sculpting class) and another year after that I became 200 hour yoga trained because I fell in love with yoga - I never thought that would be something that interested me but once I got involved I couldn't stop and am so happy I started my yoga journey 3 years ago.
I have always helped my friends and family with their personal fitness goals and in doing so I realized how much I enjoy being a part of their fitness journey and helping them build a healthier lifestyle. I understand how valuable everyone time is and know that when you make a commitment to a healthier more fit life you want to make sure your time in the gym is productive and gives you the results that you are looking for. Working with a personal trainer ensures that you learn how to work out and what you need to do in order to get the results you want. Let me help you in your fitness journey & get a jumpstart on a healthier lifestyle!

As a young man, I enjoyed team sports including baseball, soccer, and basketball. As I reached high school, I discovered the challenge and reward of martial arts, beginning with Tai Chi and Wing Chun. In 2003 I began my journey in American Kenpo, sticking with it through the years in order to be able to teach, having recently acheived a 4th degree black belt. Due to my insatiable curiosity, I have since explored several disciplines of self defense; Hapkido, Baguazhang, Shaolin Fist, Jeet Kune Do, fencing, to name a few.
In 2009 I joined the Iowa Army National Guard, recently transferring to A Company, 1-133 Infantry in Dubuque where I serve as a team leader and unit master fitness trainer.
My curiosity led me to explore a career in alternative health, pursuing a Master’s of Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, 2014-2016. My wife and I decided to put that on hold for the foreseeable future, at which time I obtained my personal trainer certification through NASM in December 2017.
Over the last 20 years, I have enjoyed helping people achieve their goals. My passion in life has been to see people gaining new skills, knowledge and abilities in order to pursue their passions injury free. Let me help you reach your goals, starting today!
