Not your typical fitness expert, Amanda Bisk stumbled into her current career choice after being diagnosed with chronic fatigue. Prior to that, she was an accomplished Olympic athlete. In the process of training she began to feel tired, sluggish and unlike her real self. After her diagnosis, she made the decision to give up her successful run as a pole vault Olympian and focus on other goals.
In response to being put on anti-depressants as a result of her chronic fatigue, Amanda began to make the transition to a healthier lifestyle. This helped her find natural ways to relieve her depression, making it possible to discontinue her medication.
Having earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Science, Amanda already knew something about nutrition and health, but pushed herself to learn more. She then developed a new passion and appreciation for health and fitness.

It includes a series of Yoga sessions as well as workout regimes and tricks and tips for getting and staying fit. She also runs fitness retreats in which participants spend one week together engaging in Yoga, surfing and other fitness activities. The retreat includes trainers who work with participants to keep them as physically active as possible.
Not content to simply settle for what she already has, Amanda went on to enter into collaboration with Kini Swimwear to launch her own line. The swimwear line was launched in 2014 and is designed for physically active women. Each swimsuit is customizable and allows consumers to choose the cup size and style of bikini they want. This is the first line of swimwear Amanda has released in her home country of Australia.
