My name is Emily and I’ve specialized in exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle behavior change. I believe in a holistic mind-body approach when it comes to helping others achieve their desired health and wellness goals. I’m a Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and a Holistic Nutrition Consultant. I have my Masters degree in Health and Wellness Coaching with a concentration in Holistic Nutrition (you can learn more about me below). I am located in Victoria, BC.
My mission is to help others become empowered and to learn how to live from their hearts, rather than from their heads (other than using all that sexy knowledge that’s stored up there, of course.)
I want to help you to learn how to live a life that you love.
Whether it be through Personal Training, Nutrition, or Wellness Coaching, my intention is to inspire and share my knowledge with you. As a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Consultant, I will work with you in achieving your desired fitness and nutrition goals. And as a Holistic Wellness Coach, I will be a sounding board when you need it most and I will help you take charge of your own life, knowing that you are already naturally creative, resourceful and whole (ya, you’re already awesome.) For both, I will help you discover and uncover your own truth, utilizing your strengths as a person to create sustainable life changes in order to help you live your best life.
I mean think about it. You’re the only YOU in this whole world and you have the power to be the best YOU ever… how awesome is that!?
And I can help you tap into that power.
I believe that we create our own reality through our thoughts, actions, and words. We create our own truth moment by moment.
That is why I value truth, love, forgiveness, authenticity, adventure, exploring, travelling the world, maintaining my health, holistic nutrition and eating plant-based, my fluff ball of a dog Winston (who is the cutest thing ever), spending time with people that I love, being with the love of my life (who happens to be a pretty good lookin’ musician), hiking every trail and mountain I see, walking everyday, soaking up the sun, spirituality, breathing in fresh air, living in nature as much as possible, organic living, going to farmers markets, simple living, yummy green juices, hitting the gym, personal training, yoga every day, challenging myself, and living each moment to the fullest.

” I absolutely loved the coaching with you, I always looked forward to it. It was so easy to talk to you and open up. From our talks, I remembered to stop and take time for myself and that it wasn’t selfish for me to do so. I refound my love of fitness and to enjoy it, and use fitness and food to be healthy. You helped me regain my confidence and to look in the mirror and realize how amazing I am. ” – Chelsea H.
“Emily has been such a nice and warm trainer. I felt truly nurtured and cared for during the whole training session with her. She understood my problems and what I wanted out of training session and was able to tailor the program according to my needs. My posture problem and muscle tone have been improved so much with her program. She is so gentle and caring; will never scare you away from personal health training (which can be scary to some people). I would give her 10/10 as a PT and as a person you can freely talk to about your body image without feeling self-conscious.” – Gina
“When I started with Emily, it had been awhile since I had been working out regularly. I honestly did not like going to the gym, but Emily made it fun, even though she worked me hard. She has been so encouraging, I couldn’t ask for a better personal trainer!” – Anne P.
“After taking a few years off from the gym, I decided to join some group classes to restart my workout routine. I quickly discovered that I needed some 1 on 1 sessions! Emily was fantastic from our first consultation. I felt confident that we could work together through some of my limitations I had experienced with my hip. With her personalized training programs, I have built strength in my core that I never had before. My poor posture and discomfort from doing desk work has greatly improved and I finally feel and look stronger. Emily keeps me motivated through ALL of my workouts. I trust she will find exercises I can do and feel even better after! I had intended to only do a few sessions but I have continued to work with her and look forward to reaching my new goals.” – Bristol K.
