Introducing Olivia Amato

How did you get into fitness? 

I was always on different sports teams such as field hockey, lacrosse, track and cheerleading. I went to college and had trouble figuring out what I wanted to major in but I was good with numbers so my guidance counselor suggested taking a few finance classes. I wound up excelling in the classes and the competitive nature of the business intrigued me.

When I graduated I went to work on Wall St. for a few years, first in equity sales and then in equity trading. I loved meeting people and connecting with clients but instead of going to fancy dinners I’d take them to fitness classes and to grab a green juice. I really missed being a part of a team and the motivation that came along with it. I wasn’t feeling fulfilled and sitting at a desk all day started to eat away at me. I made a plan and decided to trade in my business casual for a microphone and leggings.

What do you love most about teaching?

I love seeing people do things they never thought that they could. I love building a community with like-minded people and watching the camaraderie build around it. I am so thankful that my job allows me to share my passion with people every single day.

What excites you the most about joining the Peloton team?

Meeting the amazing community! I have heard such amazing things about the support that the Peloton community has for each other. It amazes me and I’m excited to be a part of it.

What can Members expect in your classes?

My class will be challenging, uplifting and fun with super bumpin’ beats that will inspire you to move! I will be cheering you on, motivating you and pushing you past limits you didn’t even know you had.

What are some of your favorite tracks to work out to?

Check out some of my favorite music here on my Spotify playlist.

In three words, how do you want Members to feel after leaving your class?

Inspired, uplifted and confident!
