Amanda Kloots Reveals When Her Health and Wellness Journey ‘Clicked’ for Her (Exclusive)

Amanda Kloots says things got rolling for her in 2010.

Amanda Kloots enjoys living a healthy lifestyle as she’s constantly staying active. And while she’s always been active due to her dancing background, her health and wellness journey began nearly 15 years ago. PopCulture.com recently spoke to Kloots about her journey that started when she was teaching fitness in 2010. 

“It just clicked,” The Talk co-host told PopCulture. “It made sense to me. It made sense with all my background and what I loved. Then teaching and seeing people get stronger, seeing people’s confidence just soar through the roof, make friends, have a community, it really started to touch me in so many different ways.

“It turned into like, oh no, fitness is so much more. It’s a mental game. It’s a joy game. It’s a community game. It’s a place to feel love and acceptance and challenge your body. It was that kind of beautiful revelation that I was like, oh, I actually … I love this about working out. I love this about taking care of my body and making it stronger.”

Kloots is always looking to try new things to keep her body in shape. Recently, the 41-year-old began cold plunging, which was tough for her at first because she’s not a fan of the cold water. “I don’t like being cold in general, so I live in Los Angeles,” Kloots explained. “But my good friend was my coach that day, and he
