The first day Amber started to breath life back into me, was the day I learned about one of her 10 day challenges and decided to join. I had some pretty cool results on the 10-day challenge and I was at a place where I wanted more and needed more for my life and for my family. I had unknowingly started my health journey with this simple declaration. I signed up for a free coaching session with Amber.
I was at a place in my life where I was really aware that I was not the happiest and healthiest version of myself and my two young daughters were watching me and that didn’t feel good. Saying “yes” to The Healthy Edge journey felt like the obvious next step. I started my Healthy Edge journey wanting more for my daughters and have since discovered, I also needed more for me. I have found my strength in their love and my daily inspiration is my desire for a better life for all of us.
I enjoyed every audio, the reflective questions and the videos very much. I learned a lot, re-learned things and enjoyed doing it through Amber’s funny and straight forward deliveries. The best part of my decision was to also commit to one on one coaching sessions with Amber along with a small online group program with five other women.
When meeting with Amber one-on-one, she put the materials under a different light and we were able to dig deeper into where I was struggling and where I was suffocating. Over the course of the 8-session and meetings, I have released about 10 physical pounds and several inches, toned a lot of muscle, began a consistent exercise regiment and had a new variety of healthy go-to foods stocked up in my home. But most importantly, I have come out feeling healthy and strong for the first time in years. I feel positive and have faith in the process of living a Healthy Edge lifestyle with a trust in myself I have never experienced. For the first time since I can remember, I feel like I am enough. I will forever be grateful for Amber and The Healthy Edge program for guiding me down the golden path to my best life.
Working with Amber as my Healthy Edge coach was a natural next step for me. I was ready to embark on a deeper dive in uncovering the beliefs and patterns of behavior that continued to keep me stuck. I knew that this was going to be a transformative process when I shared with Amber that I had a full schedule and wanted to wait until three months later. She lovingly, yet firmly, asked “What will be different with your life and schedule in three months?” She hit the “nail on the head” when she identified a pattern of “busy” that continued to keep me and my health on the bottom of my to-do list! I said “yes” to the partnership with Amber and have been set free in so many unexpected yet welcome ways!
I have found that “progress not perfection” has allowed me to make wise choices and be empowered to take ownership of my health journey from a creator stance rather than as a victim. I have uncovered unhealthy beliefs and patterns of behavior that I’ve had with me since my adolescent years, and have learned to lovingly embrace my inner child while making choices now as a wise, capable and resourceful adult. I am more aware of my physical body and the connection between my mind, body and spirit, allowing me to become more integrated and whole. I also learned that clean eating can be fast, easy and fun!
The basics that Amber teaches, the resources and recipes she provides, the encouragement and hand-holding she offered through some tough coaching calls, and the “one-liners” have all become sources of inspiration, challenge, discipline and support for me. I am forever grateful for Amber’s willingness to go to the “deep end” and for the continued healthy “me” that is emerging. I am continuing to leverage the information, insight and tools I have gained in working with Amber and look forward to finding my version of “Healthy Edge”. From here, anything is possible as I create, dream and become ALL that I am meant to be!
"Everyone who knows me knows that I love Jazzercise. I love seeing people reach their goals, get more toned and get great test results back at the doctor’s office. But many people will say: “Jazzercise just doesn’t work for me because I’m not losing weight.” Well, it is about so much more than just exercise. If you’re outeating your exercise plan, nothing will work for you! Not cross training, running or Jazzercise. The Healthy Edge is an amazing lifestyle program that will help you get your priorities right. It is not a diet; it is not a pill you can swallow. You will not see results overnight. But you will feel better, be healthier, learn so much about yourself and release some extra weight that you’ve accumulated. And if you’re looking to improve your cardiovascular system and get more toned, Jazzercise can help with that."Mirjam, Arizona
"I've only been part of The Healthy Edge for a short while (maybe a year or so) and while I definitely haven't arrived (who has?) and there's much I still want to improve upon, I can clearly recognize that I'm a different person because of you and The Healthy Edge. I don't say that many things are "life-changing," but THE is one of them that gets the "life-changing" label. Not only do I feel less intimidated in the kitchen (I've started trusting myself more and measuring less), but I feel safer in the kitchen. I'm not talking about the running-with-scissors sort of safe, but the sort of safe that empowers me to make smart choices.Prior to joining THE, I wasn't someone who appeared to be unhealthy by society's standards; however, the internal battle with food, day in and day out, the shame and guilt I carried and sometimes still feel, created unhealthy habits and thought patterns. I honestly get teary-eyed thinking about the mental changes I notice in myself, and am even more emotional when I think about how these changes will affect my children's relationship with food. As a recovering perfectionist, I continue to feel such a relief when you remind us that perfection is the lowest standard we can hold ourselves to. I smile a little bit each time you tell us that there doesn't have to be a party each time we eat. I think of all of the other Healthy Edgers when I'm trying to meet my water goals (social anyone?). And I'm trying my best to incorporate a word I learned from you and think is cute and funny--yummo! Thank you Amber for listening to the Lord and doing what He purposed for you to do. You are changing lives and this life is forever grateful. Oh happy day!"Cat W.
