About Amber

My passion is health and fitness. I live it…each and every day. I have always been active, loving sports and working out. PE was my favorite class. In high school, I was introduced to Group Exercise and that is where my fitness life began. I started teaching Aerobics at 16 and when I went to college, I got certified through AFAA for Group Exercise. I have taught numerous classes over the years, Step, Cardio Kickboxing, Circuit, Spinning, Yoga, Mat and Reformer Pilates, Urban Strip Tease, Ab and Glutes, and Hi/Lo Aerobics. My early beginnings in the Group Ex world have given me an abundance of exercises to use in my workouts with clients. Following a Fitness Program is important, but being able to incorporate different exercises and formats keeps it fresh and fun for the client.

On top of a College Education, I have several certifications and trainings from some of the top Fitness Companies in the business.I am an ACE certified Personal Trainer and I keep this certification current by completing Continuing Education Courses and re-certifying my CPR and AED courses every two years. Each year I attend an educational conference to keep abreast of changes in the field and to learn new information. I am constantly reading and learning about all things health and fitness related.

I’m also a presenter for SCW Fitness.  I have presented on numerous topics including Training the FAB Woman: Fifty and Beyond, Golden Nutrition for Active Agers, Nutrition Coaching for the General Population, Perfect Programming for 50+ and Recovery Techniques for the Active Ager.

I’ve used trainers for the past 26 years or so. Almost all promise a personal approach, but never, until Amber did I realize what it really means. The thing that stands out far above anyone I’ve trained with before, is that Amber truly cares about her clients. She’s a trainer that actually… Read More

I believe in teaching people how to change their behaviors and choices to have a healthier lifestyle. I believe in moving your body and eating well. I do not agree with fad diets, supplements, or any quick fix food or exercise programs. I know that consistency, working your program day in and day out, is what leads to success.

As a young girl, I played basketball and for four years was a Cheerleader in High School. In College, I played recreational softball and was on the Southern Explosion Dance team for 3 years. Although I have been active all of my life, I had a terrible diet. I loved junk food and fast food and I still have a massive sweet tooth. I started to take note of my food choices when I began my training for competing in Figure Competitions. Over the course of two years, I trained and prepared for two Competitions, Gainesville Classic in 2010 and Jax Physique in 2011. During my competition prep, I learned how very important nutrition and proper training is to creating the body you need to be able to step on stage.

I am grateful for the knowledge I gained during this time, but I realized there are some negative aspects to competing and I no longer wanted to subject myself to this lifestyle. Now, my focus is on weight training to maintain my muscle mass. I love to workout with weights and this is my primary source of exercise. My diet is balanced with as many whole foods as I can get and the proper combination of carbohydrates, fats and protein. I have learned to meal plan and usually spend Sundays creating most of my meals for the week. I enjoy participating in races and try to do at least one a year. I usually run half marathons. I have a goal to complete a marathon. Currently, I am training for a duathlon, a race where you run, bicycle, and run.

One of my most important lessons learned is that striving for true health is a lifestyle. Each day, I need to make choices that lead to good health. Behavior change is something I have worked on and continue to work on as I desire to live a healthy and happy life.
