About Fit Healthy Best
I feel great knowing that today I am a fit, healthy mom.
But, trust me, this wasn’t always the case.
After I had my 2nd son, I realized I was 30 pounds heavier than I had been on my wedding day. I was exhausted, could barely keep up with work and my kids, and I wasn’t feeling my best.
Luckily, I tapped into my pre-baby knowledge as a certified group exercise instructor and started making small changes to get back to my pre-baby body.
No gimmicks, no fads. Just the basics.

About the Author
Amber Nash, Founder & Managing Editor (in)
I’m a former certified group exercise instructor, CPA, and mom of 2. I have been strength training for over a decade and I spend my free time writing workouts, playing around in our home gym, and getting my kids outside to be active any time we can.
I’ve been in the exact same place you may be today—an exhausted mom who wanted to provide more for my kids and feel better every day.
I started Fit Healthy Best after struggling with my postpartum weight and energy levels.
I was 30 pounds overweight and felt overwhelmed and defeated. I knew strength training and a balanced diet would get me to my goals and my pre-baby body and energy levels, but it felt like so much work.
Over time, I added a few short strength training routines to my weekly routine. I slowly cleaned up my diet, but still allowed for indulgences. I stacked small, healthy habits, one by one. I didn’t uproot my entire life. I made small shifts slowly.
Guess what? After just a few weeks, I felt better. A few weeks after that, I felt a lot better.
These days, I’m now maintaining a weight that is lower than my wedding day weight — easily. How?
Strength training. Consistent, heavy weight lifting.
You’ll find me lifting 3 or 4 times a week in my basement gym. It’s my happy place and my stress reliever. It’s my self-care and my me-time.
I am an avid weight lifter who loves the latest and greatest home gym equipment. I am regularly adding new strength training equipment to our home gym. The products you’ll see recommended on Fit Healthy Best are likely in my home gym or are on the wish list.
I am a firm believer that every woman should be strength training 3 or 4 times a week. It’s vital for your longevity, your metabolism, your overall health, and the added bonus is that it keeps you fit and trim!
Cheers to strong women and good health!
