‘For those that think that I am, yes, I sell a few programs online, but my business has been severely struggling because of COVID,’ the personal trainer added.

She continued: ‘We’re pretty screwed here in Melbourne, all the gyms are shut. I’m surviving off Centrelink for those of you who don’t know. 

‘Just to give you a quick run down the hotel quarantine alone is going to cost close to $3000, plus getting myself there in a separate flight to Smokey, the car, my personal belongings,’ she explained.

Elsewhere, the former reality TV star said: ‘I also don’t need to justify myself, I just think I’ve done a lot for other businesses out there.’

‘I’ve done a lot of posts for free, I actually haven’t charged a lot of the businesses that I’ve worked with and I’m just asking if you’re feeling generous and you want to give back, now would be the perfect time to do it. 

Amanda added: ‘What I don’t need is any hate messages or calling me a cheapskate or anything like that, because I can assure you that I’m struggling just like everyone else.’
