Meet Susan Gaunce


 I am so incredible excited to announce the next LEAN Accountability Coach, Susan Gaunce. I know so many people that know Susan are going to agree with me that this gal is truly the salt of the earth! She is a business woman by day and supermom by night! She honestly can do it all. I feel so lucky to have her on my team because she is the most supportive, encouraging and down to earth person you will every meet! I can’t wait for my clients to have the chance to work with her and see that themselves! Welcome Susan Gaunce to the LEAN Team!


Hi guys!  I would like to introduce myself, my name is Susan Gaunce and I am so excited to be part of Amanda Nighbert’s LEAN Team.  I live in Lexington, KY and got to know Amanda on the baseball field through our sons. I am married to Chad, and we have four, very active boys ranging in age from 10-15.  I also own my own business called Team One Promotions. Needless to say, we are a busy, fun loving family who is always on the go!

Having four kids in four years, taught me the importance of eating healthy and staying in shape.   I dove deeper into healthy living and cooking. The better I ate; the better I felt for sure. Group Exercise became a wonderful outlet for me.  I love working out with my friends and the energy that it brings to my day. You will see me all over Lexington taking classes!


When I joined Amanda’s program, her energy and knowledge were contagious!  LEAN has taught me so much that I cannot wait to share with you. It has also brought a lot of balance to my life.  Although, for the most part I was a healthy eater and regular exerciser (with a few vices), I never once thought about a macro or the importance of working protein into my day and paying attention to how many carbs I was eating.  The old calories in and calories out mindset was gone forever.

Intermittent fasting scared the heck out of me!  Not eating for 16-18 hours seemed impossible! It has truly been a game changer.   I have more mental clarity, and have embraced all of the good things that come from digestive rest.  

Do I still have some vices??  Absolutely, I still love chocolate, red wine, and pizza.  Amanda taught me how to manage those treats into my week. It is not an all or nothing lifestyle, and they taste better when you are in control!  With Amanda’s help I truly feel healthier and stronger than I have in years!!

As a busy, working mom who like a lot of you are trying to get dinner on the table, manage schedules, and a daily list of to do’s that is a mile long I want you to know that you can do this too!!   The LEAN program will give you simple strategies, and all the support you need to get you those results and turn your results into a lifestyle.


I am so excited for the opportunity to be apart of the LEAN program as an accountability coach. Being able to motivate, encourage and support other women looking to achieve a healthier lifestyle is very rewarding. These strategies have changed my life and I can’t wait to teach others all that I have learned!

XOXO, Susan
