Fitness and nutrition have been lifelong interests and passions of mine, starting with my own personal health. I love improving people’s lives, with both physical andmental health. I love helping others attain their fitness goals, by encouraging them to push themselves to the point they never thought was possible. I dedicate myself to each session ensuring my client’s needs are being met, by modifying exercise routines to fit their needs and abilities. I understand every person’s body is different, so I determine the best exercises for their success, without fear of injury. Most of my programs are centered around Corrective Exercise techniques, focusing on creating balance throughout the body, to reduce injury from daily activities, and help them live a happier, healthier life.
My favorite exercise
Quadruped Opposite Arm Opposite Leg Raise (bird dog). This exercise works the core, glutes, back, and shoulders, while working on balance. And there are so many different variations!
My favorite quote
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live. -Jim Rohn
My training philosophy
Goals are individual, not universal. Just because someone can run faster, lift heavier, go longer, doesn't mean your effort isn't good enough. Work hard for you and your goals. Progress will come.

Amber is a very professional, funny and genuine person. She is highly knowledgeable about proper exercise, nutrition, and muscle rehabilitation. I came to her after being referred by my spine doctor, due to a bulging L4 and protruding L5 disc. My spine doctor told me that the only thing that would help my spine was to strengthen my core muscles, and she was right, after working with Amber for three months most of the spine issues have disappeared. I have also noticed some additional perks such as I am able to wear a summer dress without worrying about jiggling all over the place or wearing Spanks like body armor. My arms are getting firmer and I am not so self-conscious when I wear a sleeveless top. I am able to wipe my bum properly, tendonitis and frozen shoulder made this difficult, and I have noticed that my upper waist doesn’t rub against my lower waist anymore. I am also able to hold my bladder until I am sitting on the toilet. I thoroughly enjoy working with Amber and I highly recommend her as a personal trainer.
