Amber U.

Book a session with Amber

Amber is a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. Amber was in the process of becoming a group fitness dance instructor when she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2006 and was advised to minimize exercise. As her symptoms continued to get worse over the next year, she became increasingly dependent on medications. It was then that Amber found a Functional Medical Group that encouraged her to make healthier food choices and to begin an exercise program. By 2008, all of her fibromyalgia symptoms had subsided, but she had gained unwanted weight as a side effect of her medications.

Amber made working towards a healthier body composition a priority and by 2010 had lost over 30 pounds. Many of her friends and family saw how she managed her health and weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine and asked if they could join in her efforts. That is when Amber discovered her passion for helping others. Amber wants her clients to understand that she knows how it feels to struggle with health and weight issues and that she discovered first-hand how fitness and nutrition can bring healing to your body. She is excited to share her passion and expertise with the Lenexa Rec Center.
