Amy Brown

Position: CEO + Founder

INSTAPHYSIQUE was born from Amy’s desire for a workout that was all the things she was looking for in one… challenging, efficient, effective, results-oriented and fun. Amy was introduced to the Lagree Method in 2006 in Los Angeles, and has been addicted ever since. She fell in love with the constantly evolving work out and experienced amazing results in a short time. After two decades in LA, she moved back to her native Sacramento in 2015 to blend her passions of fitness and business, introducing the community to this life-changing workout, and realizing her dream of creating a space that would force you to drop into the moment like nothing else and serve you the best 40 minutes of your day.

InstaPhysique is…?
An evolution in fitness thinking – a workout that has a level of intensity and challenge that forces you to look at how you communicate with yourself. It’s a community built around mindful and intense movement that is welcoming and non-judgmental …where people feel safe, empowered, energized, and know each other’s names.

Why do you love this workout?
It’s the most effective, functional, and low-impact I’ve ever found. More importantly, the physical practice of InstaPhysique never fails to shift my mind set – to make me FEEL strong and empowered in my body, my mind and in my spirit. This is my wish for everybody that walks through our doors!

Anna

Position: Coach

Born & raised in Sacramento, Anna returned the the City of Trees to raise her family after spending 10 years in Santa Barbara where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. She’s a total sucker for the self-empowerment physical challenges can provide, which is why she loves coaching at Insta, and why you’ll usually find her training for some sort of race in between her full time sales job & trying to keep her young sons in line.

What is your favorite mega move?
Express Lunge

What is your class like in 3 words?
Motivating, technical, empowering

InstaPhysique is…?
A place to push yourself to get stronger physically AND mentally.

Why do you love this workout?
It never gets easy! Plus I love how it compliments so many other activities (like running & cycling) without stressing the joints.

Brian

Position: Director of Coach Development

Small town boy with a big personality, Brian has just as much fun teaching off of the Megaformer as he does shaking on it. By day, he works full time at a university, but by passion he loves to empower others in their fitness/wellness journeys.

What is your favorite mega move?
Mega Donkey Kicks (I like any heavy pressing moves)

What is your class like in 3 words?
Fun, fun, and fun (to me a workout should be enjoyable, not a punishment!)

InstaPhysique is…?
A community where you can safely build relationships with others and yourself. This workout, while challenging, encourages you to connect with your body and find meaning in what it is ACTUALLY capable of! At InstaPhysique, we encourage each other and receive that encouragement in return. There’s so much love!

Why do you love this workout?
I love that it is a high-intensity but low-impact workout. Recently, I have had to face the reality that my body (specifically my knees) just cannot handle large volumes of high impact movements anymore. This workout shows that almost anyone can get a good workout while getting their needs catered to at the same time!

Caroline

Position: Coach

Caroline enjoys new adventures, magical experiences, feeling uncomfortable, laughter, and a strong cocktail.

What is your favorite mega move?

InstaPhysique is…?
Where you can push the mental and physical limitations of your body and give yourself the opportunity to expand, grow, get stronger, and to take control of your destiny.

Why do you love this workout?
I love this workout because for 40 minutes I put 100% of my energy into myself. It’s an investment in my physical and mental well-being. We were built to overcome anything and life is too short for mediocrity.

Diane

Position: Coach

Diane has been in the industry for 13 years teaching everything from Spin, Pilates, to Yoga. She enjoys everything outdoors from hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding. Her passion is her family; a husband of 22 years and 2 fur baby dogs.

Why do you love this workout?
I love that this workout is forever evolving and the principles are backed by science and research. This workout meets the needs for everyone from a mom to a pro athlete.

Jackie

Position: Coach

Jackie is a boy mom, owner of Neat Method Sacramento, and a lawyer. She recently took a step back from firm life to open her own business and spend more time with her small boys. Prior to that she was a trial attorney for State Farm and an InstaPhysique client. She took her love for InstaPhysique and turned it into coaching. She never leaves the house without her coffee tumbler and hydroflask, so don’t ever offer to carry her bag. 🙂

InstaPhysique is…?
Instaphysique is HARD, it never gets any easier and I love that.

Why do you love this workout?
I love this workout because it is as much about mental strength as physical strength. You have to want it every class and if you keep coming and keep wanting it you will see amazing changes in your body and your mind.

Jessica

Position: Coach

Jessica played competitive sports her entire life – she was a competitive skier and a NCAA D1 swimmer at TCU.

You can’t find a total body workout that’s only 40 minutes long and leaves you breathless and shaking as you walk out of class. It’s a workout that I love taking AND coaching. Come join me on the MEGA!
