Recap of the interview
Question: What is your number one workout tip for people who are busy but want to make exercise a part of their lifestyle?
Amber’s answer was spot on. She recommends that we make moving a part of our day throughout the day. For example by taking the stairs, walking places, biking to work, getting up and taking breaks throughout the day and just moving your body more. I think that’s great advice and I think that all of us can really appreciate it and make happen it in our lives.
Question: What is your advice for people who need help getting motivated to work out?
Amber recommends that we take a look at ways to make exercising fun for us. She mentions that taking a class or doing a fun activity as an exercise routine is the greatest way to really embody this type of exercise. Also getting a buddy or having a friend exercise with you is a great way to keep you going.
Question: What keeps you motivated to work out what you love about?
Amber explains that dance has been part of her life since she can remember. She loves the idea of dancing and moving and she loves the way it makes her feel. She says it’s just something that has become a part of her lifestyle.
Question: What is your diet like and how do you feel on a daily basis?
Amber mentions that her diet consists of a lot of fruits and vegetables and she is moving more towards a plant-based diet. She avoids processed foods. She still consumes meat or fish about twice a week, and she also enjoys experimenting with all kinds of new foods. She mentions that she is always experimenting with different ways of eating.
Amber and I share a very similar point of view when it comes to health and nutrition, and I hope that she shared a lot of interesting tips to get you moving again and exercising for fun.
