Emma says:

"I love to challenge myself and include a wide variety of systems in my own training. Some of my favourites include long distance running and high intensity training, along with more traditional martial arts training methods. I've achieved so many of my own personal goals and I like to put my all of my efforts into helping my clients do the same.

I believe that healthy bodies are happy ones and I like to work with my clients in a positive way that will help them to improve their relationship with their bodies. I like to incorporate pilates and yoga inspired exercises into programmes as the restorative benefits are second to none; both physically and mentally - I like to do them myself too!

I love learning about new and innovative training methods, and incorporating them into my clients' programmes, I don't think we are ever a finished article, there's always something new and exciting to discover!"
