Amber Lyftogt | Personal Trainer
Amber Lyftogt was born and raised in Fremont, California. She started dancing at 3 years old and shortly after was introduced to gymnastics. Falling in love with the sport almost instantly, Amber competed until she was a level-9 gymnast and began coaching and judging part-time until college. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine, Amber worked as a stuntwoman while training to be an exercise therapist. She's been fortunate enough to work with professional athletes and celebrities, and has traveled abroad to teach classes and host fitness retreats around the world. On top of being an ambassador for LIVESTRONG, Amber was recognized as Top Trainer by the LA Times and was Ms. Fitness Hawaiian Islands in 2008! Her favorite way to stay motivated to find classes that remind her of the things she loved as a kid- She mixes up her workouts by visiting open gyms, practicing basic gymnastics, and attending challenging boot camps. She teaches everything from circuit training to dance fitness but is also passionate about food, constantly finding ways to create healthy, scrumptious recipes. She believes that life is better lived happy and healthy, and surrounds herself with positive, active people every day.
PRE WORKOUT RITUAL:
In her free time, Amber and her husband host monthly dinners at their home, enjoy trying new restaurants, and take weekend vacations along the coast. Her perfect Sunday would not be complete without a long brunch with friends followed by a yoga class or spa day.
Picking out my workout gear, throwing my hair up in a messy bun, filling up my water bottle, making sure I have the best playlist, making sure my body is properly aligned, and setting an intention for my workout!
Pastries and desserts.
As a new mom, comfort and style are important to me! I love simple workout clothes I can wear to more than the gym.
IN MY PAST LIFE:
I was a rockstar!
