When I first started working with Emily, I had a dream of getting ready for a figure competition; I didn’t really believe that it was possible for my body to transform to being competition ready. Emily helped me with everything, the meal prep, the outfits, the mental support and all of the above. I competed in the show and was so thrilled that I did it. I now have a foundation of how to eat better, what kind of workouts I should be doing and I have a good idea of how fit I can really be! I am deeply indebted to Emily for helping me to change my life, my body and my perception of myself. Emily is a perfect example of consistency because not only is she coaching you but she is a competitor herself; who has a history of winning! I train with the best because I want to be the best.

Emily has been such a source of inspiration to me as a figure competitor! I scheduled our first posing session somewhat hesitantly because I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to pursue the path of competition. During our very first meeting, Emily jumped right in with positive suggestions, instructional critiques, and most importantly the genuine encouragement to participate in my first show. Over the course of our weekly sessions, she instilled a belief in myself I didn’t know I had. We met weekly for posing instruction and three months later I placed second in my class! I’ve placed in the top three all the shows I have participated in and attribute my trophy collection to Emily because I could not have walked on to those stages mentally and physically ready without Emily’s knowledge laying the foundation to my success. Her intimate knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes at a show including how to navigate all the details of preparation and competition is invaluable. Emily’s unique combination of expertise, professionalism, experience, cheerfulness, compassion, and support sets her apart from any other coach. I have referred several fellow competitors to Emily for not only posing instruction, but also for training and nutrition counseling and she has exceeded expectations in those categories as well!"

Emily has been my competition coach for 52 weeks. Before working with Emily, I worked out and ate fairly healthy for years, but I was never able to obtain the physique I desired. I also wanted to start competing in Figure competitions, but I had no idea where to start or what exactly to do. After doing research, I discovered Emily and hired her to coach me. In 17 weeks, we transformed my physique from overweight to an Overall Figure Champion! I won 1st place and the Overall at my first competition ever! The amazing results I achieved are largely from Emily's perfect combination of training plans, cardio plans and meal plans! Emily continues to help me perfect my physique and I continually see changes! Emily has extensive knowledge, creates individualized plans and is extremely attentive! Emily genuinely cares about her clients' success! I am proud to have her in my corner and coaching me to bring my best package to the stage every single time! I highly recommend Emily to help you achieve any fitness goals you have!'
