After losing my mom when I was only 23 to an eight year battle with breast cancer, I became very aware of how precious and fragile our health is. Seeing someone you love unable to enjoy life because of an absence of health forever changed my life path. I went on my own journey to regain my physical, emotional and spiritual health and through this process The Healthy Edge was born. With my background in education, coaching, personal training, human nutrition and wellness, The Healthy Edge offers education, empowerment and breakthrough to people who are ready to learn how to live a lifestyle of health and take personal responsibility. We do this through a powerful online health community as well as an opportunity to complete an 8 week lifestyle program with the support of a certified Healthy Edge coach.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Amber Thiel as a speaker, coach, business partner or friend. Amber is the real deal! She is smart, creative, honest and filled with passion for what she does! After seeing so many people get results from The Healthy Edge I felt compelled to become a Healthy Edge Coach myself to help inspire, educate and empower the people I work with. The Healthy Edge is the best program of it's kind that I have seen anywhere. Amber and her sister, April, have co-created a program that people can relate to and use in the real world of their own lives. Thank you, Amber, for creating the Healthy Edge and for your passion in sharing it with others! I am honored to be one of your Healthy Edge Coaches!

As Co-Founder of The Healthy Edge, Amber Thiel has definitely found her calling. Amber brings her vast energy, incredible knowledge and high motivation to the Healthy Edge program, designed to help individuals and their families live longer, healthier lives.  Amber drives the unparalleled support for Healthy Edge Coaches. When Amber asked me how she could better support me and my fellow Healthy Edge coaches in the Cincinnati area, I told her to come to Cincinnati and talk to us. So that she did! As a motivational speaker, Amber ignites a room. We packed the room and would do so again.
