I am Amber Callahan, a Philadelphian born, Moore College of Art graduate with a Bachelors degree in fashion design turned IFBB Bikini Pro, fitness model, and a Team Edge Athlete whom has accomplished one of the biggest body transformations from battling anorexia.
However, there’s more to me than all of this. I am a motivator. I strive to be an example for others that you can do anything you set your mind too. I’ve proved that nothing is impossible. Since going through my struggle with anorexia, I’ve become extremely strong minded and dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle. Years later soon earning my IFBB Bikini Pro Card at the NPC USA’s in Las Vegas. As I always say I stop at nothing, and nothing stops me.
I’ve always viewed myself as my biggest contender because I’m the person I face everyday in the mirror. I have dreams; and I work day and night to make those visions a reality with hopes of gracing the pro stage for a long time.
My fitness journey is definitely not your typical story. I started into modeling and acting school at a young age, up until when I was in high school. I then graduated and moved onto college. Over those years, I developed an extremely unhealthy lifestyle. I was suffering from anorexia and body dysmorphia. I was weighing about 80 lbs. When I first started lifting, I couldn’t even lift a 5 lb dumbbell! I had a lot of issues mentally with my body. Eventually when I got down to that extremely low weight, I really needed a reality check. I joined a gym and signed up with a personal trainer where I learned the basics to working out. I took everything in like a sponge. Overtime I found this love for lifting. It made me feel strong and powerful, and the results were just amazing. Overcoming anorexia has been one my greatest accomplishment in my life that I don’t ever regret the pain and suffering I went through.
Overcoming one of the hardest eating disorders has changed my life greatly than I had ever imagined. It has pushed me to become the strong woman I never knew existed. I had found a love for training and in the back of my mind I knew I would compete on stage someday. Six years later, I am proud to say that I’m living my dream as an IFBB bikini pro working with the BEST team in the game with one of my biggest inspirations since I began my fitness journey, Ingrid Romero of Team Edge. The bond I share with my coaches Ingrid and Joe is indescribable. They have molded and shaped me into the strong, powerful, and fearless person on and off the stage I knew I could become. This is the person I knew I was meant to be. Not only that, I’m grateful to have amazing support from my family, my boyfriend, close friends, and my amazing following. I’m grateful to be able to inspire so many with my fitness journey. That truly is the greatest gift ever.
