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 first version of the Mega in 2006 in Los Angeles. She fell in love with the constantly evolving work out and was immediately addicted. After two decades in LA, she ditched her 9-5 and 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. As a single mom, finding time to workout can be a struggle – I love the efficiency of our workout as it safely checks every box in such a short amount of time. 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?
Mega Kicks

What is your class like in 3 words?
EFFICACIOUS. HERCULEAN. SILLY.

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.

Irene

A hairdresser of 18 years turned fitness enthusiast, Irene started to take her health and fitness seriously 3 years ago after letting her weight creep up to 210 lbs. Eating healthy and working out has changed her life – she now lives for it and wants to help as many people as she can!  Irene is an Old school, R&B and Funk music lover who loves to get to know new people. She says “I am very dramatic and loud – being 100 percent Greek it’s in my blood! Opa!”

What is your favorite mega move?
Express Lunge on 2 Yellow – I can literally feel my cellulite melt away!

What is your class like in 3 words?
Motivating, Funky, and Funny.

InstaPhysique is…?
Community and Strength for your body and mind.

Why do you love this workout?
It is the best 40-minute workout.  I used to spend hours int he gym and have never gotten results like I get from Insta! The work we do on the Mega gets you in shape fast. Even if you are just starting out, give it 3 classes and you will see results. No other workout has ever done that for me!

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. 🙂

What is your favorite mega move?
My favorite mega move is mega kicks, working that leg all while getting that oblique fired up too.

What is your class like in 3 words?
Uplifting, silly, challenging.

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.

Jonny

Position: Coach

Jonny grew up in a small town in Michigan. He loves to travel, try new workouts, do anything outdoors and spend time with his Yorkie. If he isn’t coaching, there is a good chance you will see him sweating next to you in class!

What is your favorite mega move?
Spider Kicks.

What is your class like in 3 words?
Upbeat, effective and challenging.

The best and most effective workout with an amazing group of coaches you can’t help but to love.

Laurie’s focus shifted from traditional Pharmacy to functional wellness and helping people make changes in their lifestyle to achieve better health outcomes. Laurie has been a client of InstaPhysique since day 1, which she credits to rehabilitating a back injury. Coaching was the next step in her wellness transformation, she loves seeing people get stronger and encouraging them to be the best version of themselves!!

What is your class like in 3 words?
Challenging, motivational, and FUN!!

InstaPhysique is…?
The best total body strengthening workout of all time, completely transformed by body…and never gets easier!!

Why do you love this workout?
Core, core, core…the most concentrated core workout one can do. I truly believe that core strength is the fountain of youth, supporting our posture and movements. This workout can be done by all ages and levels of fitness and still continues to get more challenging the more you do it.

Leslie

Position: Coach

While living in Los Angeles, Leslie discovered the Lagree workout, and instantly fell in love and got hooked on the intensity without impact.

I have done Lagree for over four years and am still addicted!

You’ll quiver like a wet chihuahua

InstaPhysique is…?
The most challenging/energizing/rewarding 40 minutes of my day.

A phenomenal supported practice on a Megaformer. Across various spring loads of resistance the flow of movements offers challenges that test an individual’s strength, flexibility, balance, & endurance. It will push an individual’s mental & physical limits in a safe & non-intimidating environment.

Why do you love this workout?
I absolutely adore how Insta never gets easier, but we as a community we get better. It is wonderful to shake & grit my teeth on the Mega alongside such a kind and welcoming community. I have 11 lines on my abs because of this practice and could not be more excited about how my strength & endurance have grown. We are stronger together as an InstaSQUAD, for sure!
