Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Talk to us about your career and what made you get into the industry? I started modeling about 9 years ago when I competed in my first bikini bodybuilding competition. After I did my first photoshoot I started getting booked for events and other shoots, and my modeling career really took off from there.

What is your favorite thing to do? My absolute favorite thing to do is to travel I absolutely love to dive into a new culture and see the way people live in other parts of the world. Having a better view of other people, and the way they live helps me develop more well-rounded and understanding opinions.

What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? Being viewed as a strong, intelligent, and ambitious woman am I to continue to uphold that standard of myself, so that I can continue to be a good role model to empower other women.

What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? My follow-through is unparallel. If I make a commitment to something, especially in this line of work, you can count on me to see it through.

What puts the biggest smile on your face? What puts the biggest smile on my face truly is being able to make other people happy. There is nothing that brings me more fulfillment than seeing loved ones filled with joy. Someone doing that for me will really make me melt.

What are some of your biggest passions? Fitness is one of my biggest passions I have always enjoyed taking care of myself and having a goal to work toward keeps me progressing in a positive direction. Adventure is another one of my main passions I love to explore the world and what it has to offer.

Ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? The biggest deal-breakers for me are controlling behavior, sloppiness, rudeness, and laziness. I love a kind and successful man.

What are some of the things that attract you to a man? I am attracted to a man that shows leadership, ambition, generosity and good humor. I also really take notice of someone who is confident and puts thought into how they present themselves as a whole.

What is the most daring thing you have ever done? The most daring thing I have ever done was when I took a trip to Belize, and I went scuba diving in the ocean when I was descending into the water, I was diving with 5 sharks without a cage or any protection. Talk about the exhilaration of a lifetime!

What is the best way to approach you as an admirer? When an admirer approaches me I love for them to say something along the lines of, “Hi Ambre I follow you on _____ “ or “ I know you from…” I love meeting admirers, so don’t be afraid to say hello!

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? I love having 1-on-1 conversations with my friends on my website at Ambrefit.com, and follow me on Instagram @Ambrefit to keep up with all of my adventures!

We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for our readers? It’s always better to take the risk and find out than wonder, “What if?”
