The fitness personality responded with total sincerity to the question asked by a follower. The question was about the ashes of her recently deceased husband due to Covid-19 and his fate.


Amanda Kloots, 38, is grieving the tragic death of her husband, Nick Cordero, due to complications from the coronavirus two months ago. Devoted to her work to keep busy, Kloots decided to ask her followers to ask her questions on her Instagram.

One question stands out from the others, as a follower asked about her husband's ashes if they were in his possession. She answered with total frankness that yes, she had them in her power but only part of it. The coach explains that part of the ashes was thrown into the Pacific Ocean.

This she did as the father of her late husband also rests in the same ocean. Nick Cordero, passed away on July 5 at the age of 41. He is survived by his wife and a son with her, a one-year-old baby named Elvis Eduardo. Kloots wrote in her story, answering the question:

"I put some of them in the Pacific Ocean on our anniversary because his dad's were also put in the Pacific."



These last two months have been terrible for Kloots, she explained. Searching for her husband's ashes was for her an experience “beyond surreal and horrible.” She also commented that at this moment her priority is taking care of her son Elvis Eduardo.

Another question they asked her was about her emotions at the moment if she wasn't feeling frustrated, angry at the unfairness of the situation. To which Kloots replied that she has a son who rests on her and that that wouldn't really solve anything.



Kloots is the founder of a clothing brand and right now she's also focused on making it work. Hospital bills are coming to her door and she needs to dedicate herself to providing for her family's needs.

"I need to survive, I need to survive," were her words after explaining that she is doing what is necessary to provide for herself and her son. She also dedicated a sweet tribute to her late husband, sharing a selfie of both with some words that express how much she misses him.



A few nights ago when she got home, the coach was pleasantly surprised that the last CD recorded by her husband had arrived in the mail. It is a list of songs and some photographs, with a few words from Kloots and a dedication.

Explained the mother of one, the CD can be pre-ordered by those who wish to acquire it and that it will be available for the date that would be Cordero's birthday. "Live you Life" is the name of the CD that was recorded during April 2019 together with his colleagues and friends: Kathryn Gallagher, Zach Braff, Sara Chase, and Drew Gehling.


The Broadway actor had completely indulged in his latest one-man show. Something that Kloots is very proud of, as Cordero created a very personal mix of music and a story to tell.


Another issue that the coach has addressed in her publications and interviews is the fact of being a single mother. It is particularly hard for her to face that she will be without her loving husband and father of her son Elvis Eduardo to raise him together and watch him grow up.

She says that she has learned a lot from this circumstance and one of the most valuable things she has learned is that it is okay to ask for help.
