Amy Hite

 

COACH

“From the beginning of my athletic career, I have enjoyed both the physical and mental challenges that come from pushing your limits… from flipping through the air on a four-inch-wide balance beam, to being secured by just a few sharp points on a frozen waterfall, to learning how to swim at 30 years old. The hard work and perseverance that go into breaking mental and physical barriers and mastering new skills is infinitely rewarding.

I love helping others gain the confidence needed to believe in themselves and accomplish their wildest dreams.

Experience 

Amy has completed 30 ironman races including three finishes at the Ironman World Championships with an Ironman PR of 10:27.

Her athletic career began with gymnastics, where she competed up to Level 10 in high school, while also coaching pre-school up to pre-team girls. After earning a Chemical Engineering degree, her athletic focus shifted to climbing: rock, ice, and high-altitude mountaineering. She has summited multiple Ecuador peaks, six over 5000 meters, including Chimborazo (20,564ft). She also summited Aconcagua (22,841’), the highest peak in the Western hemisphere, via a route that circumnavigated the mountain.

Amy was formerly active in CrossFit, where she coached for several years. She has helped people get to the start line of the Boston Marathon and to the finish line of an Ironman.
