Founder, Newtown Athletic Club
Amanda Sinkler may only be 27, but she’s hardly a newcomer to the health and fitness club industry. Since her first job as a kids’ camp counselor 13 years ago, she’s been ascending the upward path to leadership at the Newtown Athletic Club (NAC). Over the past five years, she’s increased summer camp revenue by 230%, and expanded the club’s youth programming, which has involved the hiring and training of 100 employees.
Today, Sinkler oversees the Newtown Athletic Club’s Operations through conducting training for club managers; developing marketing, sales, and operations strategies; and coaches the leadership team to increase revenue, member engagement, and retention. At IHRSA’s Annual International Convention & Trade Show in 2017, she spoke about developing programming for children with special needs. In 2018, she spoke at the convention on generating revenue through summer programming. Sinkler is a graduate of The IHRSA Institute.
Currently, Sinkler is working on her latest project as the Founder of Newtown Discovery Preschool, a school for infants thru 5 year olds located on the NAC’s campus. The school opened in Sept 2020.
