Mandy Bushey


Health isn’t something we try to achieve in January on a fad diet, it’s a life choice that together we can start today!

Mandy Bushey has been working in the health and fitness industry for the past 15 years. She began her career as an Exercise Physiologist managing the Duke Center for Living’s fitness and exercise physiology department in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for just over five years. Through that experience, she developed a passion for medical fitness and helping those recovering from injury, looking to lose weight or dealing with chronic disorders. 


Mandy is a nationally certified aquatic trainer and uses both land and water modalities to help her clients achieve their goals. As a former college athlete, she understands the need for a balanced routine of nutrition, flexibility, strength training and cardiovascular exercise to prevent injury and to have lifelong success in maintaining health and wellness. She is an active mother of two boys, who enjoys swimming, being outdoors and reading a good book.

We moved here 4 years ago, and knowing no one, joined the HAC and I started in Mandy Bushey’s small group personal training Aqua class. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Up until that point, I never even got my hair wet and hated water!! I made many wonderful friends, started to love Aqua exercise, and even signed up for HAC swimming lessons. I truly believe that Mandy’s positive attitude, and that fact that she actually loves what she does, made the difference. We work hard, but laugh and enjoy what we are doing, and don’t even realize that an hour of exercise has gone by. Mandy knows each of our physical limitations, and believe me since we are all over 60, there are quite a few, but she deals with each of us on a personal level, as well as keeping the group involved. I would recommend her class to anyone who feels they need to start their day out on a positive note!
