Hi there! My name is Amber McDonald and you can catch me teaching Bodypump on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at NDAC! As a native of Iowa City, and a member of North Dodge Athletic Club years ago, it is such an honor to come back to this amazing gym as an instructor! I see many familiar faces, and it’s been fun catching up with some members I took classes alongside years ago.
I completed my Les Mills Bodypump training in September of 2016 and officially became an instructor in November of that year. Before becoming certified as an instructor, I had been taking Bodypump classes for over 15 years. I love the mix of weights and cardio and I love that I can do Bodypump at any hour of the day (even those early AM classes are fun and enjoyable!)
My husband, Tyson, and I have been married for eight years and we live in North Liberty with our daughter, Maya, and two dogs Myley & Puckett. We love being active as a family, although many of our family walks end up at Dairy Queen!
As my day job, I work for a local food distributor and service several schools and healthcare facilities in the area. I love Hawkeye football and Chicago Cubs baseball, spending time with family and friends, and staying active. Yoga, kickboxing, and HIIT classes are my jam! I look forward to seeing you guys at the gym soon!
