About FIT Launch, Inc.
FIT Launch joined this world in 1997 purely as a fitness education provider for the group fitness and personal trainer professionals. Workshops offerings were approved for CEC’s by ACE and AFAA and still today Amy is faculty for the American Council on Exercise. From the beginnings her passion was strong to reach others with the benefits of fitness.:
In the early 90’s, after my first child, I learned first hand the benefits of diet and exercise in regaining my fit and active life. Sharing that passion directly to others as a trainer and also to other professionals through continuing education programs was an exciting challenge.
In the early 2000’s, FIT Launch began working with Fit Bodies, Inc. in not only providing fitness professional education in multiple countries, but also assisting in their programs of sending these same professionals on “Teaching Vacations” at all-inclusive resorts throughout the Caribbean. The program, Fitness Pro Travel, now has over 30,000 of these professionals traveling each week.
The Fitness Pro Travel platform provides great networking for the fitness professional and easy access and booking of the many teaching vacation opportunities.
Several years after the beginnings of the fitness travel programs were added, we began working to a greater extent with local athletes. This has been at both the high school as well as with tactical athletes in several local fire departments.
The FIT Launch home base is in Snohomish Washington, where we have a small studio for personal and small group training.
Founded by Amy Bomar, CPT, she continues to speak at conferences, train individual and small group clients, and provide yoga classes in the FIT Launch studio as well as the YMCA of Everett.
The tag along is Tom Bomar, CSCS RSCC. Spending the grown up side of life as a firefighter for the city of Everett, he programs and trains for the local high school. Since 2011 he has been the Wellness Team lead for the city of Everett and began the Tactical Wellness online platform to track and program for these specialized type groups.
