June Member of the Month-Julie Smith!!

Congratulations on becoming member of the month Julie!  This means a coach has spotlighted your work ethic and value that you bring to our community.

Tell us how you got started and your experience at Amplified Fitness.

I started at amplified after seeing an ad on Facebook for a 6 week fitness/ nutrition challenge. Extra weight, aching bones and middle age was my reason for taking the challenge on. Amplified suddenly became my favorite place in the world. My body started moving, my heart got stronger, weight fell off and muscles appeared. With each workout my mind cleared itself of old habits and fixed beliefs. Friends were found who cheered me on and I started to look at age not as a number but as a challenge to how young I could feel. Today 18 months later, good exercise and a healthy eating habits are a part of my life and amplified will always be a journey that changed me for the better!

Favorite movement(s)?

I love pulling things. The sled, the rower, band exercises…
I also adore running fast, jumping…, something I was never able to do well, until now:)

Least favorite movement? Least favorite workout?

Anything involving Stacy’s family. (Inside joke at Amplified)

Current Goals?

My goals at amplified are you keep showing up, keep putting in the work, keep pushing myself and keep smiling!

What do you like most about Amplified Fitness?

I like most things at amplified. Workouts, awesome! Coaches, spot on! The number one thing I like the most are the friendships formed over a common goal to be better. No where else had I been able to find that and I show up for it because I’m so grateful!

If you had to, every morning before you were allowed to leave your house do 1000 calories on the assault bike or 500 wall balls?

1000 calories on the assault bike.

What would you tell someone that is thinking about joining Amplified Fitness but feels very nervous about starting?

Simply walk in, sit down and do what you’re told. The program is catered to whatever level fits you. Everything is put into place for you. Your only job is to be there and do it!

Honey Chipotle Chicken

Chicken, I eat a lot of it!  Its cheap, filling and packed with protein.  However, it can get repetitive very easily so variety in chicken recipes is really important for many of us.  Here’s a unique one thats easy to cook!



2lbs Chicken Breast

7 oz(1 can) chipotle pepers in Adobo Sauce.

84 Grams Honey

64 Grams Ketchup

1/4 cup sugar free syrup

Ole Wrap Extreme wellness Wrap.


Cook the chicken on low in the crockpot for 2.5 hours.

Shred the chicken

Blend the Chipotle pepper and mix with the Honey and Ketchup.

Mix the wet ingredients with the shredded chicken

Divide the chicken evenly into 5 wraps

Omnomnomnom!  Enjoy 😉

Recipe notes

This recipe gets better if you let it sit in the fridge overnight.

You can make this recipe lower calorie by reducing the honey(I was very generous with the honey), by using reduced sugar ketchup and walden farms 0 calorie syrup. While this recipe is not very spicy if you or someone you are cooking for is sensitive to spice you can reduce the chipotle peppers.

Brown Sugar Spicy Nuggets

Brown sugar spicy nuggets. This isn’t a typical recipe I make as this one isn’t exactly family friendly, probably too spicy for kids and requires a liking for spicy food. It’s very unique. Very very spicy(on the white people index) but you can also taste the brown sugar at the same time and the cooling taste of the ranch dip adds a nice contrast. The Cal/protein ratio is insane!


How to:

This recipe is super easy to make.  Lets dive in!

Step #1 Mix all of the following together.

  • 12 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, diced
  • 1/2 Tbsp (8g) Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tbsp (12g) Swerve Brown sugar replacement*
  • 1 Tbsp any BBQ rub of your choice

Step #2

Lightly coat the chicken in olive oil.  I recommend using a spray form.  (olive oil is caloric dense.  The goal is to use as little as possible while lightly coating the chicken.  I have accounted for 1/2 tablespoon in the nutrition facts)

Step #3

Toss the chicken in the Spices.

Step #4

Cook the chicken in the air fryer or oven @375 for 15 minutes.

Step #5

While the chicken is cooking mix 100 Grams of 0% fat free Greek yogurt and 50 grams of bolt house ranch for a dipping sauce.

Step #6

Toss the chicken in another 36 Grams of Swerve Brown Sugar.

Step #7

Enjoy 😀
