: Amber was never athletic growing up or as an adult, until after becoming a mother she found herself beset by several nagging lifestyle related health issues. Determined to be a healthy role model to her children, she began exercising regularly and making improvements in her family's diet. Eventually her passion for healthy living led her to pursue certification as a Personal Trainer. Amber believes that we all have the potential to be active and healthy into our 80's, 90's and even 100's, and here at Body Techniques her focus is on supporting others in their pursuit of vibrant and long lasting good health through daily physical activity.
