MEET OUR TEAM

AMBER FRYE

OWNER

She is the dreamer who thought to bring Optimize U to Portland. One of the founding members of ChillNOut Cryotherapy, Amber opened her first cryotherapy studio in 2015. It wasn’t long before her studios transitioned from nitrogen cryotherapy to electric cryotherapy and this enabled her to begin adding complimentary modalities to the suite of services that ChillNOut offered. In 2017, Amber co-founded Electric Cryotherapy Chambers Inc. and shifted her focus from client care to B2B equipment distribution and sales. She’s very excited to move back into the end user space – and especially with the addition of functional medicine treatments.


In her free time, Amber loves camping, hiking, and lounging with her daughter & two dogs. Her favorite food is sushi and she loves getting Spanish Coffees at Huber’s in Portland. One of the things she loves about Oregon are the changing leaves in the fall as it isn’t a common occurrence back in San Diego!

EVAN KUKLINSKI

TECHNICAL DIRECTOR

Through his background in mechanical engineering, electronics, and biohacking, he brings a deep understanding of how the physics of Optimize U’s modalities affect our bodies. Holding several patents, his innovations include technology surrounding red light therapy and our very own electric cryotherapy system, one of the coldest and most efficient of its kind.

Evan enjoys volunteering his engineering abilities. In the past, he has developed free prosthetics for developing countries, and most recently he was the lead designer of an FDA-approved high-volume, low-cost emergency ventilator to assist during the pandemic.

When he isn’t working, you’ll generally find him tinkering in his garage, traveling, or hanging out with his friends and family. He is excited to be able to provide high-quality services to people in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
