Amber Thompson

Amber Thompson became a member of the TLTFC when she moved to L.A. 17 years ago, but says, “I had never belonged to a gym before and didn’t know my way around a weight room. I felt intimidated and embarrassed, so I spent most of my time on the treadmill.” When she finally started taking classes from one of the club’s instructors, “my body changed and friends were asking me for fitness advice.” She was inspired to begin helping others and returned to the TLTFC 11 years ago as a trainer.
