After spending two years teaching and coaching in Kansas, Amalia decided to move to a warmer climate. Once in Austin, she spent the first few years outdoors, either riding her bike or running. Eventually she found her way back into the gym and began strength training.
After becoming a Texan, she ran a marathon, pedaled through a century ride, competed in amateur boxing matches, and lifted in several powerlifting meets before discovering olympic-style weightlifting. A month before her 40th birthday, she competed in the 2011 National Weightlifting Championships, finishing in seventh place. In 2013, at the age of 42, she competed in the American Open Weightlifting Championships.
