Read through her fantastic interview with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You had a background in pageants and modeling. You got your education with degrees from the University of Oregon in Economics and Business Administration with a focus in finance. You were encouraged & motivated towards fitness in 2010 after you won the overall in bikini at your very first NPC show. You reached the pinnacle of success when you won 1st place at the 2013 NPC Emerald Cup. Tell us about your journey that took you to the the world of fitness?
Ms. Amber Dawn Orton:
Yes that’s correct, however, I don’t believe The Emerald Cup was “my pinnacle of success”. The Emerald was a stepping stone in the process. I went on to place second place at nationals after the Emerald cup but then changed my direction to focus on fitness modeling instead of competing as it was a healthier outlet for me.
In the process I knew I was passionate about health and fitness but didn’t feel healthy at all while competing. I decided to change my focus and find a better avenue to sustaining a lean body I was proud of in the healthiest way possible. That’s how I created my brand and Team ADOFitness and the philosophy we have stood behind since day 1. We have grown ADOFitness into a nation wide business with over 500 clients between myself and my four other trainers and couldn’t be happier to be helping others with their goals in fitness in a sustainable and healthy way.
Prior to ever competing I was convinced to give it a try from my brother, Aaron Orton, who is a natural pro bodybuilder now. He saw potential in me and convinced me to give competing a try. That decision truly changed my life and I decided in 2012 to focus solely on fitness as career versus working in my corporate finance job which I always thought was the job I wanted. I realized I didn’t feel fulfilled working in an office and wanted to do something other than sit behind a computer screen all day. I craved social interaction and helping others in a bigger way which was the driving force behind my decision to pursue fitness full time.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
What is your motivation to take a multi-faceted personality of a online personal trainer, nutrition/prep coach, posing instructor, competitor, endorsed athlete, NPC judge and fitness model?
Ms. Amber Dawn Orton:
The motivation comes naturally because its truly what I love to do. I don’t see myself doing anything else as a career and don’t feel like I am even working most days because I love my job and helping others. Its motivating for me to see my clients progress and see all the posts about how good our clients feel online and know we are truly making a difference in the health and fitness industry.
