This month we are featuring an Instructor of the Month… Kiley Hearn our Master Group Instructor! Kiley is obviously an Amplified favorite instructor. She has been with us for the last 2 1/2 years and we absolutely love her! She may be petite, fun and smiley but don’t let that fool you because she has also been fondly referred to as “Killer Kiley” by clients/other instructors who take her classes.
