Amy Nowakowski
Jungle Gym and Fitness Assistant

Two words to describe me: Adventurous and Compassionate

“May your rails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.  May your mountains rise into the clouds above.”  –Edward Abbey

I love fitness because it creates happiness within yourself and in the world around you.  Personally, fitness is how I achieve balance in my life.

I lived out west for 10 years, where I worked as a Fisheries Biologist and Hydrologist for the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming.  I spend my days hiking, backpacking and horseback riding into remote locations for work.  Fitness was essential to doing my daily job.  I came back to Alpena where I was born and raised, reunited with family and discovered wonderful people at Bay Athletic Club.

At BAC, I am a fitness assistant and work in the Jungle Gym.  I take pride in helping people find fitness and create their foundation for a happy, healthy life.

My hobbies include playing ice hockey, mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, playing guitar and being outside exploring the natural world with my two young children.
