Services

Personal Training

Dedicated personal training in a private fitness studio.  A standard session is 55 minutes, tailored to your specific ability.  Opt for a 28 minute “flash” session if you’re looking for something shorter.  You can also round up 1-3 of your friends to bond, burn calories, build muscle, and save a bundle

Group Classes

Full-body, high-intensity circuit training that includes speed and agility drills, body weight movements, plus dumbbell, kettlebell, and TRX Suspension training.  This class will rev your metabolism and keep you burning fat for hours.

Health and Nutrition Coaching

Healthy eating and lifestyle choices are as important as exercise.  Let me help you with sound nutrition guidance.

About Emily

I am a health food addict, a fitness junky, an athlete, an avid gardener, an engineer, and a mother. My career as a personal trainer and health coach is informed by my love of movement, strength, and vitality. I want every person to feel powerful in his or her skin, free of pain and body shame. I have experience with rehabilitating a variety of injuries, c-section recovery, diastasis recti repair, eating disorders, numerous food allergies, weight loss, and chronic pain. An understanding of these challenges has given me a high degree of sensitivity to the needs, limits, and personal goals of others.

My Philosophy

I believe that exercise should not be a painstaking chore. It should be an empowering and enjoyable experience with a positive outcome – an energizing practice that keeps you coming back for more.

As a trainer I create programs that incorporate functional full-body movements, cultivate flexibility and balance, develop core strength and stability, and make an individual feel powerful and independent. I also endeavor to help my clients achieve a level of mindfulness and awareness that fosters appreciation of their unique body and its capabilities.

As a health coach I partner with clients to develop strategies that enact real, sustainable, lasting lifestyle changes. I assist clients with many areas of their lives including, but not limited to, weight management, digestion, cravings, sleep, energy, relationships, and stress management.

Whether you are trying to lose weight, train for an event, regain strength after having a child, find balance in your life, or retain independence as you age, I can help you achieve your goals and have fun while doing so.

Testimonials

What some of my clients are saying

Emily has encouraged me to think of exercise as movement in all its forms, whether it’s on an elliptical, running, gardening, or simply walking instead of driving. Because of Emily, I am stronger, more flexible, and have better balance.   [read more]
