Amber Larsen is a massage therapist, registered yoga teacher, biologist, CrossFit Level 1 trainer, CrossFit Gymnastics trainer, and kinesio tape practitioner.

 

Amber has been an athlete all of her life, playing soccer as a child until she finished college. She was also a gymnast and track and field athlete. She started her career in fitness coaching as an adult after she graduated from college. She soon found a love for kinesiology, human anatomy, and physiology, and decided to go back to school to become a massage therapist. She later went back to get her Bachelors of Science in biology with a specialization in human anatomy and physiology.

 

In 2012 she became a registered yoga teacher as well as a CrossFit level 1 trainer. In 2013 she earned her CrossFit Gymnastics certification. Amber currently trains at Southern Pines CrossFit and owns her own massage practice in North Carolina. She is always learning, and goes to trainings as much as she can in not only CrossFit but massage therapy and biology as well.

 

In her spare time Amber enjoys doing CrossFit, adventure races, spending time with her husband, and gymnastics floor tumbling. For more information about Amber and visit her blog at Massage and Health by Amber Kim.
