Let me introduce myself, I’m Emily
I am from a small town near Manchester, England and I am based here.
From a young age I have always been into sport, whether that was football, netball, cricket, athletics, rounders and even ballroom and Latin dancing. I enjoyed every sport I tried particularly sprinting and dancing. I danced until I was 17, I enjoyed the freedom sport gave me. From a young age it’s always been a form of therapy for me.
I stopped being active for a few years, after battling some mental struggles and having my son, I took up boxing. I got in the ring 7 times, I know hold 5 wins and a championship belt.
Not long after I found boxing, I found weightlifting too. I qualified as a personal trainer alongside of it and that was 6 years ago!
In that time, I have taught countless of classes from circuit training, kids boxing, boxercise. I have coached many men and woman 1-2-1 and helped with their goals.
Last year in 2022 I branched out into online coaching and most recently, comp prep coaching and posing coaching also!
As my passion and love for the gym grew, so did my goals. I decided through covid that I wanted to compete, I wanted to be mentally and physically challenged.
In July 22 I stepped on stage for the first with pure elite in Manchester where I placed 2nd in one of my categories and earned my pro card!
8 weeks later I competed again with Ukdfba in the bikini class, again, placing 2nd. I have plans to compete again in 2024
Fitness as a whole is a passion of mine and I truly believe it’s not just a physical journey but very much, a mental one too. I love seeing people grow mentally as much as I do physically. But in order to learn and grow you have to break boundaries and step out of zones that make you feel uncomfortable. No matter what the goal maybe!
