Amber Budahn found her passion for fitness through her experience as a 6 time All-American Collegiate record holder. After college, Amber moved to the Olympic Training Center to (literally) run for her goals of making an Olympic team. But the pressure and lack of proper nutrition eventually left her burnt out, exhausted and unmotivated.

Desperate to feel better, Amber tried what she thought was a last resort: holistic health. After researching and finding mentors in the holistic health field, she finally started to get better. This experience is what led Amber to become a personal trainer. Her knowledge of holistic health, experience in the fitness industry and passion to truly feel her best allowed her to create the perfect storm of successful results for clients in a sustainable way.

Wild Workouts & Wellness is unique to the industry because it truly incorporates natural health practices into a fun and challenging atmosphere for any part of a client’s fitness journey. Not only do the clients at Wild see results in the mirror, but they feel better mentally and physically.

After over a decade of successful client growth; Amber Budahn sold Wild Workouts and Wellness to it’s new owner, Jason Neubauer, in September of 2017. In September of 2022 long time Coaches Tara Baszler and Tom Held took over ownership of the gym.

A Letter From Owner, Jason Neubauer

Fitness has always been part of my life.  As a little kid, my favorite activities included going outside and running around, riding my bicycle or playing basketball.  As I got older and entered junior high and high school I went out for and played almost every sport offered during the school year.  During the summer I would play in summer leagues and enjoyed being outside.

The enjoyment of sports and working out has always been with me, but like most people as I got older and graduated from college, started a job and a family, life took over.  Fitness was still important but unfortunately there wasn’t as much time for it.

As I progressed through my career, each year and promotion required more hours at work which lead to less time each year for taking care of myself and doing what I enjoyed.  As I rose through the ranks and gained responsibility, I also gained a lot of stress which made me tired and unhappy.  As a result, it lead to not wanting to work out even when I did have the time.

I finally had a revelation and decided to focus on my own happiness and health again after several years of doing the opposite.  I was so focused on everyone else’s needs that I found myself unhappy with my job, career path and most importantly, my own health.  I made it a priority to work out every day and spend time on myself before everyone else.  I very quickly got back into the groove of working out and couldn’t believe how much better I felt, I was sleeping much better and was able to handle the stress from work much more easily.

It was at this point, feeling good again and thinking clearly for the first time in years, that I decided to take a leap of faith.  I was still unhappy with my job and how I was still spending most of my time every day, so I decided to quit my job and find something that would make me truly happy long term.

At the time, I didn’t know what that would be, but I did know that I wanted to own a business and work for myself.  After a lot of searching, I was very lucky to find Wild Workouts and Wellness.  After meeting Amber and learning about the opportunity I couldn’t wait to make an offer!  Amber accepted and as they say, the rest is history!

I feel very lucky and blessed to now own such a wonderful business and do what I truly love every day.  The clients are what make Wild special and the family and community feel at Wild are unlike any other gym I have ever visited.  The environment is fun and friendly; we really want every client’s workout to be one of their day’s highlights.

I know that when you go to Wild that you will truly have a great time and you’re surrounded by a network that will catapult you to reach your fitness goals while having fun.  No matter what your fitness goals are, Wild and the supportive team of clients and coaches will help you achieve them.
