Once I found the power of exercise I haven't ever let it go.
I grew up in Marblehead, MA, 20 miles north of Boston and love this great city. After graduating from Tufts University I went to work at Natural Health Magazine, pairing my love of fitness with days full of health related conversations. I packed my bag and ran from the office to the nearest gym to blow off some steam, strengthening my body and mind (ball slams, plyo jumps, burpees...). As my career grew into global marketing and creative services, life demands grew alongside it. I honed in my training and set goals to challenge myself- Boston's Run to Remember Half Marathon, Tufts 10K for Women (numerous years) and a momentous climb from hut to hut across Mount Blanc from Switzerland to Italy.
When my daughter arrived, my corporate life halted and fitness stepped up. Always a learner, I found the very best education available and became certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I continued my certifications through TRX Suspension and TRX Functional Training along with NASM's Women's Fitness Specialty course. I continue to study and learn to better serve you and keep current with my methodologies- ask me about Animal Flow and core training.
Most importantly, I practice what I preach. Exercise and movement brings me so much joy and I look forward to sharing it with you.
"I used Emily to help me train for a 10K. In the past I have dealt with minor injuries and wanted to be in good shape to run. Emily was wonderful, she showed up prepared with programs that targeted exactly what I needed. Each session was filled with new exercises and ideas. She brings warmth, understanding, encouragement, and enthusiasm. Emily genuinely enjoys working out and helping others to be fit which shines through during her sessions. Her demeanor is positive and always makes you feel like whatever goal you have is amazing. Zero judgement, just love and a fantastic workout. I used muscles I didn't know I had. I would highly recommend her for whatever fitness goals are on your horizon."- Lauren B., 37 yrs old, Brookline
"Emily is more than my personal trainer she is a partner on my fitness journey. She helped me define my fitness goals and has really stayed committed to supporting me in making them a reality. She always creates innovative workout plans that keep me engaged and takes feedback to constantly modify our sessions so that I can stay motivated long term. I have worked with trainers in the US, and the UK and Emily is one of the best out there. If you are looking for a personal trainer cum friend cum life coach then you need to connect with Emily today!"- Amama S., MD (mother of two), Brookline
"Emily is fantastic! I started training with Emily post-pregnancy. She has helped me re-gain my confidence when working out and understand my strengths/weaknesses. Emily is passionate about what she does, clearly communicates, and is so easy to work with!" -Emi R, 40 something, Brookline
“I am a mother of three boys ages 12, 9, and 6. All delivered by cesarean section. I have enjoyed at home sessions with Emily for a year now. She has helped me renew my strength both physically and mentally. I can now keep up with my life! Thank you, Emily you have a lifelong friend in me!"- Shannon T., Brookline
"I have been working out with Emily for the last year, and I absolutely look forward to starting my weekends training with her. She tailors the sessions based on what each person enjoys doing, keeping their goals in mind, and makes exercising so much fun. It has truly transformed the way I approach fitness!"- Aishu S., Brookline
"As (I assume) one of Emily's oldest clients, I endorse her methods, encouragement, and demeanor with enthusiasm. She sets each session to my abilities of the day and together we are seeing progress that pleases us both. I look forward to each weekly workout (and reliably do my 'homework.')"- Alice F. 80 yrs old, Brookline
