You are chosen and perfectly loved by The One who calls you set apart, dearly loved and an expression of God's love!
I am a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and a fitness professional for over 36 years. I felt the Lord's call to share both my love for Jesus and for nutrition and fitness as he revealed how beautifully intertwined the spirit, mind, and body are designed.
The more I studied all three, the more I realized how our thoughts, the food we put into our bodies, and how we move our bodies affect, our emotional and physical health.
I wanted to change the stigma behind nutrition and exercise to go from a punishment and guilt ridden mantra to a healthy mindset of eating and exercising for improved health and energy.
This is how The Heart of the Matter was born.
My desire is for others to be set free from what is at the heart of the matter and to walk in the love and freedom in Christ!
I have helped many to find their true identity in Christ, and understand the connection between their thoughts to their nutrition and exercise.

The Heart of the Matter, Past Student
"Linda’s program, The Heart of the Matter, has changed my life! To find a fitness trainer/instructor with so much knowledge and passion for nutrition, exercise, and love for the Gospel is rare. Her program is a 30 day challenge that is actually written down and sent to us every morning. Each day I was filled up with great ideas for healthy eating choices, strength training, and Jesus. I found freedom from the bondage of certain foods as I learned more about why they are so harmful. I have also found freedom in being real and admitting when I struggle as most of us do in the area of our “food/image.” I have been bathed in the love of God and reminded that my body is His and not my own. We don’t have to look like anyone else; we just need to be as healthy as possible and thus live fully. Thank you Linda for walking this road with me always encouraging me."
Real People. Real Results.
I had the privilege of participating in The Heart of the Matter fitness challenge and it far exceeded my expectations. I expected to receive nutrition tips, lose body fat and gain muscle mass, which I DID! But, Linda beautifully wove together the physical aspects with the spiritual aspects. She taught us to see ourselves the way God sees us, to draw our strength from Him in every circumstance and to strengthen and nourish our bodies to be used for Kingdom purposes.
I had the honor of working out with Linda post my cancer treatment - chemo and radiation made me weak. Linda made me work hard and because of her I am stronger! Linda is a great trainer for all levels and her faith is endless.
Linda Amara is the BEST trainer! She truly loves and cares for the people she trains and is also concerned about the spirit of a person. She is the best!
