I must admit that up until a couple of days ago I had the faintest idea of who Amber Heard was, or what she stood for. This all changed when I picked up the latest issue of Women’s Health (which was just amazing from cover to cover!) and realized that not only is she one of the biggest up-and-comers in Hollywood, but she also happens to be one hot tamale! Of course the latter is far more important to us fitness lovers here at Nikki Wears Nike. What I loved most about the interview with Amber is that unlike many Hollywood A-Listers who claim that they simply have “speedy metabolisms” she was very frank about the fact that she has to work extremely hard for every aspect of her famous body. How refreshing! I cannot tell you the amount of times I have typed in “Gwen Stefani Abs Workout” and read that “When Gwen has free time she does crunches and sit-ups”….maybe if “free time” is the equivalent of two gruelling hours a day at least! Also inspiring? Amber is extremely public about her beliefs and values, even if sometimes they cause a bit of controversy. I was so inspired that I hung her picture in my bathroom mirror so that every time I consider skipping my morning workout I think of strong, powerful women like her. Here’s to Amber Heard – muse of the month!
