Hi, I'm Emily and I'm usually found out and about adventuring and exploring somewhere new in my camper van with my dog, JB.
From forging my own sick notes to get out of PE at school, I never imagined I would still be on my fitness journey over 20 years later.
I started my fitness journey whilst at university, like most of us, not really knowing what I was doing. I'd go to the gym, run on the treadmill (always for 40 minutes - all because someone told me that was how I would lose weight, so I did that day in and day out). If I felt brave enough to go into the weights section I'd pick up a few dumbbells and done. I did that every day, 5-6 times a week for years until I found my passion for running outdoors and triathlons.
This took me on a 10 year journey and I loved every second of it. It was who I was. There's been everything from Park Runs to a half ironman. In between all of that, that's when I really started lifting weights and doing Crossfit.
Now my journey has not been easy, like anyones, and nutrition has always been my biggest struggle. I will happily always share my journey with anyone who asks and maybe one day I'll be brave to share it with whoever reads this, but I've definitely not had a healthy relationship with food over the years, but I've found a good place with it recently.
Nowadays I love being able to do a bit of everything, I very rarely sit still. I love going to the gym and getting stronger, I equally love going for a walk along a coast path or hike in the mountains. I love the power that wild swimming has, especially in the winter. I love running in the hills and exploring somewhere new with JB.
Honestly movement to me is so more important than saying I do one thing these days.
To me everyone's journey should be about doing what they love. To have the energy and motivation whilst discovering who they really are.
What led me to become a coach in my mid-late 30's?
Whilst I was training for my half Ironman, I was going through a time when I felt so lost and realised I was using triathlons to help me control things, when everything else felt like it was out of control. But it helped me realise I was also missing something in my life. I was unsatisfied in my job and realised I missed helping people, thats why I joined the Police, because I wanted to help people.
So I set on my journey of becoming a Personal Trainer and studied my Diploma in Nutrition, then completed my Strength &.so I could use all this and my experience I'd learnt over the years to help others.
This year alone I have also completed my Menopause course and Level 2 Counselling skills qualifications amongst so may other CPD qualifications.
As I said, I usually shy away from talking about my journey with the world, but I'm getting better at it. Over the last few years I've been on a huge journey of self discovery. I've grown as a person, I've asked for help in areas of my life where I've needed it and now I aim to give you the best help I can with your journey.
I really do understand how hard a journey can be, thats why I always chose to work in a way that suits you. My coaching isn't about me telling you what to do, this is about you. I want you to get the best out of working with me to really thrive in life, get to know yourself and sustain this for life.
