Nicole has lived an active life from an early age. Soccer was her sport, 24/7. She learned to “push through” minor injuries, until they added up, and she eventually tore her ACL in college. After surgery and rehab, she repeated the injury on her ‘healthy’ knee. Maybe it was jealous?
In 2016, she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree, a love for physical fitness, and a passion to keep others from making her mistakes. Nicole became a personal trainer, and started changing people’s perspective on exercise and self care.
Nicole needed one more injury to really convince her of the importance of connective tissue care. During a strength training session, when a machine was stuck, she tried to “push through”. This time it was her spine that gave out.
Months were filled with chiropractor appointments and massages, yet nothing could reach the tension and pain she was plagued with. Nicole was on her way to dry needling when a client referred her to Rossiter Stretching. She thought: “Well it isn’t needles, what do I have to lose?”
After a short demo she could see true healing potential and signed up for 4 sessions. By session 3 she had better relief, so she kept going. With her knees and her back, there was plenty to work on. Around session 6, a client asked her how her back was feeling and a light bulb hit: “Oh my gosh, I haven’t thought about my back all weekend!”
Nicole was hooked. Her next goal was to figure out how to get all of her clients similar relief.
Enter her introduction to Rossiter Level One Training! Her workshop with Rossiter Instructor Keith finally showed her what she had been missing through all of her injuries: a true understanding of how the connective tissue supports and structures the body and the healing of the body!
Nicole’s life had to change. She would now need to be a Rossiter Coach, AND a personal trainer. “I have learned more about my body this year than all years prior. I am getting relief from old injuries way back in the day, and gaining new abilities in a range of motion that I have never ever had, even in my “prime”. I am now competing in sports again, and finding new joy in hobbies I didn’t think I would be able to do like sprint triathlons and dance.”
After two decades of ignoring her body’s warning signals, Amanda Boyce found herself stuck in chronic pain, unable to participate in the activities she loved. Lacking the right tools to equip her body for these sports, Amanda was on the fast track to injury.
In 2015, Amanda separated the right AC joint in her shoulder in jiu jitsu. Next, intense heel pain prevented participation in ballroom dance practice and running. Even a simple task like putting on shoes was a challenge. Hot pink crocs quickly become her shoe of choice!
In her search for answers to fix her injuries, Amanda was presented with responses from the medical community such as surgery, pain-killers and “learn to live with it.” Not content with those options, Amanda held to her hope for relief.
In 2017 Amanda experienced Yamuna Body Rolling at StraightLine Fitness Studio on a friend’s recommendation. After that class, her desire to get “unstuck” was invigorated! A new chapter had begun.
After talking with Shelly (owner of StraightLine and Rossiter coach) about the Rossiter System, Amanda’s hope for relief continued to grow. Deciding to give Rossiter a try, she finally found what she was looking for- a modality that would make real changes in her body and restore what she had lost. Over the next 2 years, Amanda was able to compete in jiu jitsu and Ballroom Dance Competitions, medaling in Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
A fire sparked within her and she knew life would never be the same. Transitioning out of the traditional workplace, Amanda committed to becoming a full-time Rossiter coach and Yamuna Body Rolling Practitioner. Ready to help people searching for answers as she once was, Amanda is excited to meet you!
While in college, Kaitlyn’s body developed immense pain from the repetitive strain of working at a computer, compounded by trauma from a rear-end car accident. Kaitlyn’s pursuit of natural healing led her to RMR in 2016. Through sessions with Shelly and Keith at StraightLine, Kaitlyn was able to improve her body and therefore quality of life. After her lasting results, she chose to learn this system to help her own family and friends reverse traumas and pain.
Shortly after her first workshop in early 2017, Kaitlyn’s passion for this healing work led her to continue her education through Level 4 Rossiter. She has added knowledge of Yamuna Body Rolling, and foam rolling to help her clients beyond their Rossiter session. She continues to seek further ways to help people relearn how good they can feel in their own bodies.
Though Rossiter took Kaitlyn out of pain, Functional Fitness Training with Keith is what’s kept her out of pain. Seeing and feeling the effects of rebuilding her core, Kaitlyn desired to expand her tools. Working with head trainer Keith, she began her training and education in Functional Fitness and added a certification through the AFPA. This offered more knowledge to help all her clients pursue global healing. Rossiter and Fitness Training go hand in hand in maintaining space in a body’s tissue system and making a body strong enough to withstand life.
Joining StraightLine’s drive to help clients learn self care tools and manage small pains at home, Kaitlyn certified with Amanda and Shelly in Yamuna Body Rolling over Summer 2018. The three of them are the first Northern Colorado Yamuna Practitioners and host weekly classes for spreading the body joy that Yamuna brings. See more here.
