Hi! My name is Amy Dal Santo. I graduated in May 2018 from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a degree in Exercise and Sports Science and a minor in Nutrition. I am also a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and an ACE Certified cycling instructor. I have had experience with corporate wellness as well as the general population, including younger and older adults. My experiences have provided me with endless opportunities to help people live a healthier life, mentally, physically, and emotionally. I am a firm believer that physical activity is a core component for an individual’s overall wellbeing and I am humbled by the fact that I get the chance to help someone every day at NorthPointe! The field of exercise and fitness is ever-changing, and I am always looking for research and other certifications to not only better myself, but more importantly, give clients the most up-to-date information and really make their training worthwhile. Outside of NorthPointe, I enjoy helping out on our family farm, spending time with my family, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
My name is Andrea; I have been a part of the NorthPointe Wellness team from the beginning! It has been a great experience starting with the gym from the early planning phases and seeing everything come together and grow into the unique facility that it is today. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Movement Sciences from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sport Medicine. I truly enjoy working with all ages and abilities. I have experience with seniors that strive to improve quality of living and other components such as balance and strength. I also enjoyed working with a younger population during my Fit Camp for Kids during the summer. On a personal note, I am a new mother, so I understand the importance of exercise during and after pregnancy. I love what I do, and it is my goal to help others understand and enjoy exercise as much as I do.
Hi, I am Janette! I am pleased to say I have been a part of the NorthPointe team since day one.
I believe being healthy is a lifestyle. To live a healthy life style one needs positive attitude, great support, and self-discipline to stay on track. It takes both healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle to stay happy and healthy. Being healthy can help you mentally and physically. Moderation is key, so you can still enjoy the good stuff! I enjoy working with all levels of people. I have helped kids stay active, teaching youth wellness & weight loss in the Poconos. I developed baby and me class and stroller and strength here at NorthPointe. Outside NorthPointe you can see me running half marathons and various boot camp style/ muddy races. My passion is helping people reach their fitness goals by encouragement and finding the support system they need to make that happen. As a trainer, I too, find my own support system for living a healthy lifestyle. Beyond Fitness- As a mother of 3, I do enjoy being active with my family including bike rides and races. I love spending time with my kids and husband, game nights, baking, planning local fitness events, and coffee.
My Certifications included: Bachelors in Kinesiology, National Strength & Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer.

Hello! My name is Steph and I am excited to be back with the North Pointe fitness team. With that being said, let me tell you a bit about myself. I obtained my Bachelors of Science degree in Health Promotion and Wellness with a minor in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
