Amy Mecca
June 10, 1955 - July 7, 2012
Obituary:

Amy Mecca lost her battle with cancer on July 7, 2012. But not without a mighty fight. She survived years longer than she "should" have; her desire to live for her boys, her legacy; Jeffrey Michael, Anthony James, and James Robert, sustaining her. She lived for her husband, Andrew, who will miss her feisty spirit. She lived for her clients, whom she inspired and pushed to be hale and healthy. She lived for her mother, Betty Sue Pond; her brother, John Pond; and her sisters, Susan Schwartz and Lallon Pond. She was, and remains beloved by us all.

 

Amy was born on June 10, 1955 in Newport, RI, the second child of Capt. Robert Birney (deceased) and Betty Sue Pond. A child of the Navy, she moved frequently until settling in Orlando during high school. She married the boy next door shortly after graduation, to whom she remains married. They grew three delightful boys, the joy of Amy's life. At 50, she competed in her last body-building competition, of many. As a personal trainer, she inspired her clients with compassion and discipline. She taught a very popular bootcamp and was a mainstay at the Winter Park YMCA.

 

Amy's memorial service will be held at All Saints Church of Winter Park on Wednesday, July 11th at 2:30 pm.

Love you darling sister. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life and death. You are sorely missed. But as I told you, we've got things covered down here!! So glad you are whole again...

Amy Mecca was and still is my hero. She always brought a smile to my face and pain to my muscles:) I have known Amy since 1995 when I moved to Winter Park. Her step class was the best I had ever taken but back then I was terrified of her Boot Camp. She finally convinced me it was okay to go at my own pace. Because of Amy and her boot camp I have made some wonderful lifelong friends. Thank you Amy in all the ways you touched our lives. We will miss you soooo much!

We didn't get to see you much in recent years, but we thought of you often. Rest in peace Amy, and God look over your family.

I loved Amy. She helped me to recover from knee surgery. I took personal trianing from her and her famous boot camp class. At one time we all wore camo shirts that said "Amy's Army". She truly cared about everyone's health and physical fitness. She did not like it when all of us would chit chat during her class. She would yell at us and tell us if we could talk then we weren't working hard enough. :) I will think of her and miss her every time I go to the Winter Park Y. Thank you Amy for all you did to help other people!
