Working with Amber has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. I started working with her when I was at a place of new leadership with my company and didn’t know what I needed to do in order to move to the next level. Since working with Amber I have more than doubled my income, I have been able to reduce/eliminate the things that were sucking my energy and instead focus on where my greatest strengths were. On top of that, I’ve been able to hone in on what is most important and valuable to me in order to find the sweet joy of life and of work. Amber has a unique ability to walk you through some of your deepest questions and your darkest fears to come to a place of acceptance of your greatness that leaves you feeling incredibly empowered and valuable. Working with Amber has given me so much clarity to work from a soul centered place vs a place of proving or ego which has given me an authentic voice that has led to my success. I can’t imagine working with a better, more loving coach. She has been a true God-send and I am so grateful for the process of working with her and becoming the best version of myself to powerfully bring my gifts to this world.
I’ve finally been able to establish a solid routine in my life, including things like daily meditation to keep focused and centered. In my career as a creative person, I feel more confident than ever in expressing my authentic voice. I can clearly hear the change in the music I write these days. Probably the most profound changes in me have happened on the inside though. I’ve learned how to find balance, to forgive myself, to express gratitude, to stay curious, and to be courageous in the face of my fears. I needed my entire life to change – and that’s kinda what happened.
Near the end of 2014, I had dug myself into a workaholic ditch, and felt like I had no control, no compass, and no concept of who I was anymore. I was barely sleeping, eating horribly, and engaging in a myriad of unhealthy stress reducing habits. I could not fathom how my once beloved career had devolved into such a prison.
Everything came to a head one morning when I looked down at my keyboard and discovered it was covered in my own hair. Yes, my hair was falling out. Neglecting my health had finally caught up to me in a bad way, and I knew I needed help to regain control of my life.
And help did come, in the form of a recommendation from a dear friend. “A Life Coach?” I thought to myself. “Really?” as the meat and potatoes Midwestern side of me bristled with mild contempt. But I was determined to be open to help from any and all sources, so I mustered courage and threw myself into the process. However, I had a hard time convincing my fiancée that embarking on life coaching was worth it. Eventually, she told me I had her blessing on one condition, “if your entire life changes,” she said. A tall order, no question about it. But that is what needed to happen. I needed my entire life to change.
One of the most powerful lessons I learned from my life coaching experience is that everything starts in the world of the internal. Often in our sessions together, I felt like Leonard DiCaprio in the movie Inception. But instead of breaking into my dreams, Amber helped me to hack into my thoughts. For instance, I couldn’t get my schedule under control until I learned to kick my “say yes to everything” habit. And there was no ridding that habit until I realized where that impulse originated from…the thought that what I DO is who I AM. Once I realized I was saying yes to everything to prop up my sense of worth, I began to be in control of my decisions again. Personal breakthroughs like this helped me to see that emotional obstacles in my internal world were blocking the goals in my external world.
Over the course of several months, Amber was able to help me dismantle my circus show of spinning plates. I no longer felt like my whole world was one bump away from crashing down around me. I’ve finally been able to establish a solid routine in my life, including things like daily meditation to keep focused and centered. In my career as a creative person, I feel more confident than ever in expressing my authentic voice. I can clearly hear the change in the music I write these days.

Rock Your Body was one of the most important courses I have ever taken in my life. As I delved into the material each week, I felt like I got bits and pieces of myself back. Some pieces I didn’t even know were missing! I no longer have hang ups about food, or that anxious panicky feeling that I am not eating exactly right. So much stress has disappeared around eating, and I have actually begun to enjoy myself! My favorite take-away, however, is how much calmer of person I have become. With one question that Amber posed to us, I have become less stressed, feel a stronger connection to myself and have become less reactive. I can take the time to really see what is behind a situation and take the time to understand others. My husband is very grateful for this, and I know that our marriage has become much stronger due to the work that I did as a part of this course. The material covered is worth every penny and then some.
Amber Krzys embodies a feminine form of leadership that beautifully blends authenticity and compassion with get down dirty results. Her heart-centered message empowers women to embrace and celebrate their bodies so they can play big in the world. Amber is one to watch.
The process of simply enrolling in the Coaching Immersion Adventure started something different inside of me and my business. There is something powerful that happened in simply stepping up to the leader inside of myself and in my business.
Externally, I have earned more money than I have to date in my business, setting me up for my first six-figure plus year as a coach. But more importantly I know that money is no longer a concern. This is a long-term game, not a race and the CIA has supported me in seeing that.
Internally, I no longer have anxiety around my business. Whatever I decide to do within it is with a calm and loving approach to myself. I learned new skills, concepts and ideas that I brought into the actual coaching with my clients, giving them an even greater scope of skills to explore themselves through. I also brought my whole life to this group, strengthening my leadership, the loving I have for myself, and new levels of slowing down. This program is ah-maze-ing! It’s changed everything for me and allowed me to continue to run my practice in my own unique way.
I had done a lot of work on my relationship with my body but I’d never done self-care and appreciation for my body in the way that Amber did.
I now feel guilty talking smack to my body. I don’t want her to hear me and think I don’t appreciate her. I love my femininity, my curves, my strength and flexibility. I see her as beauty and love, as the source of all life, as a powerhouse of energy and grace.
Working with Amber was a transformational experience for me. Many amazing things happened in my life and my biggest goal came to fruition—getting pregnant with my first child. Amber represented a calm nonjudgmental voice for me and seemed to always know exactly how I was feeling. Her intuition is amazing. She pushed me and coached me and encouraged me to be my best. I could always count on her for a positive perspective and kind word. Having her support meant the world to me. I can’t believe how much I’ve transformed in six months—even my husband noticed a difference! My anxiety has decreased and I feel calm and at peace. Life is so good.
Before the Rock Your Body program I felt completely disconnected from my body. I would even go as far as to say I was warring with my body and held contempt for it. For most of my 42 years this is how I have lived and it has affected every area of my life.
After the program I now have a beautiful and connected friendship with my body. I learned how to listen to my body and how to communicate more intimately with it. We called a truce and now we honor each other. I feel joy in my body even though it isn’t the ideal weight and size. I feel fierce, sexy and empowered even though I desire to be a healthier weight. I feel at peace and content yet also inspired and motivated to keep improving my body. For the first time my dedication to more movement is out of a love and respect for my body rather than a punishment or feeling of guilt. I am still growing in this and learning but it finally feels possible to get to my goals and to enjoy the journey along the way. I’m forever grateful for Amber’s presence and compassion throughout this program.
When I think of Amber Krzys, I think of her big heart. She is solid in her foundation and that comes through in every blog post, lecture and video. If you want to learn how to have a better relationship with your body, Amber is the woman to teach you!
As a business owner I was on serious overdrive for a long time—feeling stressed out, and frankly, a little crazy on the inside. The endless love and brilliant coaching that Amber provided made all the difference. I started softening into who I really am and how I really want to show up in the world as a coach.
Working with Amber was one of the best things I’ve done for myself and one of the smartest investments I’ve made. Having individual support from a coach as a coach has become a key ingredient in my success pie. The Live Intensives were a treat and extremely beneficial in learning new ways to serve clients. As much as this program helped me in my own business, it helped me personally and internally. I was able to step out of my routine and evaluate my actions, thoughts, beliefs, patterns, and really work through what’s benefitting me and what’s not. As I sit here and reflect on the past 6 months, I hardly recognize the woman I was before. I’m still me, and, I’m much more now.
I felt drawn to Amber’s blog because I knew I needed a fresh perspective on how I have been approaching my life and body. I have been obsessing about my weight since I was a young girl and throughout many different sizes and points of my life. I have tried fad diets and cleanses since I was a teenager and nothing has ever lasted. I have just had further frustration built each time I failed or gained weight back. This program helped me undo those negative feelings of guilt and failure and reprogram my mindset and lifestyle so I can live the life I truly want—free and happy!
In a conversation with Amber, I found myself saying that I didn’t think this program would work for me because I didn’t think I could actually change the way I felt about my body. That was a powerful moment. I realized I had lost faith in what was truly possible.
I signed up for the Rock Your Body Challenge immediately and am so glad I did. I realized how all of the things I want to work on in my life are connected to one central thing—how I allow myself to think and feel. The lessons I learned each week have jump-started me on a journey to take better care of my body, listen to my body, be active and eat right for all the right reasons and, most importantly, to love myself exactly as I am right now.
I cannot over exaggerate how valuable the Coaching Immersion Adventure program has been. I now see every aspect of my business as a joy. There is still hard work to be done, but it is all fulfilling—no more exhaustion or doubt in my abilities. I’ve grown leaps and bounds personally, and changed how I coach so that I serve my clients even more powerfully. Going through this experience with Amber as a guide, and the other beautiful, like minded, entrepreneurial spirited women of the group for support helped me see that I can have the business I want, the way I want it.
By the end of the program I quit my “day job” and I now coach full time. I just had a $3,000 week, and could possibly have my first $10,000 month. I can’t believe that I made all of $3,000 total as a coach the year before!
Before working with Amber in the CIA program, I had been struggling to get my coaching practice off the ground for over a year. I spent countless hours trying to “get” business via social media, learning Facebook ads, writing blog posts, creating online programs, spending tons of time and money with online “gurus”, doing everything I thought I was supposed to be doing, and getting nowhere. In fact, over an 8 month period, I only made $600…
I was discouraged, exhausted, broke, and quite literally on the verge of giving up. I doubted I could ever be successful as a coach, and trying to make my business work was taking a huge emotional toll on me.
The first time I spoke with Amber (before officially joining the CIA program), I felt an immediate shift in my perspective. She has a way of helping you see the learning in the process, so that it does not feel so daunting. She is immensely supportive and encouraging. Based on this, I decided to say yes and join the CIA program. And, as Amber would say is no coincidence, the very next day I signed my first $1200 client.

Joining the CIA program was hands down the best decision I ever made for my coaching practice.
I am enthralled with the work that Amber is doing. Oh, if we can just stop the war of women warring against their bodies once and for all!
Since participating in the The Rock Your Body Challenge, my relationship with my body has radically changed. I had always thought that if I loved my body and felt content with it that I would become “lazy” and would no longer care what I ate or did. Amber’s course helped me realize that the opposite is true. Now that I’m starting to love my body, I care what I eat. I’m motivated to move and stretch and treat my body well. Not because I believe my body needs to be thinner or fitter, but because I want what’s best for my body. I’m so grateful for this paradigm shift and how this new perspective has brought so much joy and peace into my life.
As I was preparing to launch my business online in early 2014, I decided to give myself a great birthday present: 6 months business coaching with Amber. Working with Amber gave me the boost I was looking for in an online world that was the great unknown to me.
Amber was generous with her time, support and business strategies. She never held back and was always willing to explain (or in some cases explain again) the steps I needed to take in order to have a successful business. Not only did she coach, teach and encourage, but she also helped me prioritize and schedule the steps needed to get to completion. Working with Amber definitely sharpened my coaching skills as they pertain to my one-on-one clients. Amber is an incredible mentor, role model and a true gem who walks the walk and talks the talk. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to improve their outlook on life or take their business to the next level.
I did not realize how profound your work was and how it has positively changed my perspective on my body until I started this new chapter in my life. I am actually going to be a mom in July, to a beautiful baby girl, and I could not be more excited and terrified all at the same time!
I have always been concerned how I would respond to something that is so life altering and worried that with all my past body image issues that I would not handle all the changes with grace and love. I have come to realize that all my body image coaching with you was preparing me for this journey and has significantly helped me embrace my ever changing body. Now I am not saying I haven’t had my “bad” days but for the most part I have enjoyed the process. I have been looking at my growing tummy with curiosity and joy knowing that it is protecting my baby girl.
I hope this email brings you some joy knowing that you played a part in my journey and that you helped me heal in a way that I know will be beneficial for my daughter.
I appreciate you more than you will ever know.
To be honest, at first I was reluctant to join the Coaching Immersion program because as a coach I had gone through some of the same trainings as Amber. But from our first conversation, I quickly realized Amber’s mastery as a coach and how much I could learn from her. One of her favorite sayings is “You don’t know what you don’t know, until you know.” Amber helped me see my blind spots and some of the limiting assumptions I was making that were holding me back from fully owning the value I provide as a coach. And being coached on actual issues and questions as they come up, is priceless.
While in this program I created five complimentary workshops, my first intensive weekend workshop, my own Meetup group, and my first 5-month group program, and I’m set to double my coaching income this year from last year.
And I’ve learned so much and received so much support from the other women in the group. I’m thrilled that when the six-month program came to an end, we as a group requested (and got) an extension!
Amber Krzys is the heart of bodyheart. Her passion and dedication to helping women see + embrace their real beauty is profound. She is a bright, unique light in her industry transforming self acceptance into the art of self celebration!
I could immediately feel through my correspondence with Amber that this experience would absolutely be worth it. Her spirit is so authentic and comes from such a place of love that I really didn’t have any reservations about the program.
The most beneficial things for me were the ways that Amber was teaching me to rewire my thinking, and then being aware when I would falter in that thinking, what brought on the negativity, why and being able to talk through it with her.This course is changing my life and my relationship with myself. Everyone should have that gift.
I had been leading talks at local centers, but not promoting them because deep down I was terrified of what if’s, what if they didn’t like me, what if I was asked a question and didn’t have a great answer, what if …. Amber helped me explore these fears. After a short while I was promoting the talks and not only did I overcome the fear of presenting, I found I loved presenting.
I had a small list and didn’t understand how I could use it as a business tool. Amber educated and supported me in the process of client enrollment. She held my hand and walked me through the entire process of outreach e-mails, to one-one discovery sessions to the follow-up e-mails. I practiced and was rewarded with a great month where four new clients signed up to work with me! This skill really boosted my confidence levels and helped me see the services I offered had real value to others.
I worked with Amber for a period of six months and am grateful for her time. I got so much value for the money and learnt the incredible power of slowing down, tuning into my desires and focusing on one thing to completion.
I hired Amber for business, but I came away with personal transformation, business awareness and the tools to create a thriving practice.
Before the Rock Your Body Challenge, I struggled to love the skin I was in and often struggled with the intensity of my negative self talk. After the program I have learned to recognize the impact that a positive relationship with my body could have on my view of life and ultimately my interaction with myself and others. Participating in this group was incredible because it allowed me to shed all of my perceived masks and be raw and honest. This program allowed me to see how similar we all are. It helped me see myself through others eyes allowing me to learn so much through the interactions with the group.
Working with Amber was incredible. She is honest, real and truly aids in cultivating change. I appreciate her willingness to dive into a situation head first alongside me. I knew I wasn’t alone in navigating my growth. This program has made me a better version of myself!
Standing for something as simple and positive as what Amber Krzys does is refreshing and very easy and fun.
I have worked with Amber one on one for the past 6 months, and it has been a life changing experience. Amber’s tough love is great because you know you’re not always going to hear what you like, which in turn makes you grow as a person. Amber is very compassionate when you are discussing the hard topics. I have been able to use the tools that Amber has taught me in my day-to-day life, and able to help others that I mentor in different aspects of my life.
Amber has been a big influence over the past couple years and even more so the last 6 months. She has helped me grow in my working relationships, personal relationships as well as grieving when my mom passed away. Amber is an amazing down-to-earth person, who truly cares about your well being.
I am amazed at all I have learned while being in the Coaching Immersion Adventure program. The investment seemed a lot at first, but I made that money back in the first 2 months. Not only, have I learned how to successfully enroll coaching clients, but through witnessing Amber’s coaching skills I have become a better coach. I have made more money than I ever have through Amber’s guidance. Not only that, but I let go of deep seeded patterns of under earning. I now have more confidence in my ability to make money. There have been profound teachings for me in this course that have allowed me to deepen my relationship with my husband, create more money and become more present in my life. I loved being a part of a group of other coaches. We learned so much from each other. Questions came up for the other ladies that I have learned from and we became a team!
Amber is not only an expert at enrolling and coaching, but her heart is in the most beautiful place. She serves with her heart and soul. I knew that I would learn a lot from this experience, but I had no idea how deep this coaching program was going to take me. I am so grateful!
I have been riddled with shame and guilt about my body since I was a teenager. I’ve gained and lost the same twenty or thirty pounds almost a dozen times. I knew intellectually that my situation wasn’t about the weight, it was about how I viewed myself, but nothing I tried brought me to the place of peace and acceptance with myself that I yearned for. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I signed up for the Rock Your Body Challenge. I was afraid it wouldn’t work for me.
I am pleased to report that I was wrong. I have learned so much about myself through this course. The exercises and the practices aren’t just about weight or the physical body because true acceptance is about so much more. I now understand that the perfect body I was striving for doesn’t exist. I can finally see my own body with honesty and clarity and even with compassion. Thank you Amber for this amazing program.
