About Emma

I use an holistic approach of helping my clients to improve their fitness levels and nutrition through exercise and diet, combined with improving their emotional well-being with the use of personal life coaching. I give my clients the choice of having either Personal Training, Massage Therapy or Life Coaching sessions with me, or a combination of both to allow for a more rounded approach to helping them on their journey to a healthier and happier life.

For more information, please call me on +353 (0)83 013 6925.

As a Personal Trainer and Life Coach, my aim is to help people in their journey to a healthier lifestyle. Having a healthier lifestyle requires an holistic approach to improving various areas in your life. It can be quite daunting knowing that you want to become healthier, but do not know where to start. The services I offer are:


Growing up with a mother who was interested in nutrition meant that this interest rubbed off on me. I started taking a more active interest when I was 19. Over the years I had lived with stomach cramps, bowel problems and constantly feeling bloated. I put myself on a food trial to establish whether my nutrition was the cause, as nothing else made sense. My research led to IBS, for which most doctors prescribed a pill. As IBS is a digestive problem, I wanted to investigate a potential nutrition link.


Over a few months I eliminated dairy, wheat, sugar, spices and processed foods, and analysed how my body reacted. I felt better without dairy, wheat and sugar so I cut those out. My body revolted initially, and symptoms worsened before they improved, but now I live easily without these.


A few years later, in my twenties, some bowel issues arose. Because of our family history with colon cancer, I visited a specialist. The issues were work stress-related, but I was officially diagnosed with IBS. The specialist prescribed a pill. I asked why I needed a pill when I had been successfully controlling my IBS with nutrition. He had no logical answer. This experience has made me aware of the importance of listening to my body. I now frequently change my diet with how my body feels.


As a child, I was very active. I played tennis, did gymnastics and ran at weekends. In my mid-twenties, I took a more active interest in improving my lifestyle. I took up Powerlifting, Olympic Lifting and Strongman training. Following arthroscopies on both shoulders and both hips between October 2014 and March 2015, I switched my high impact training for Bodybuilding. In November 2015, I was able to return to Powerlifting and Strongman training. It is unlikely that I will be able to resume Olympic lifting. During my operation recoveries, I relied on  nutrition to ensure that I didn’t lose too much muscle mass and remained healthy. I exercised according to my body’s capabilities. I had fairly easy recoveries thanks to my healthy lifestyle before the operations.


I have come to love nutrition and training. You wouldn’t give a car dirty petrol, knowing that it would eventually break down. The body is the same. We can’t feed ourselves food we know is bad for us,  maintain a predominantly sedentary life, and still expect our bodies to perform.

If you would like help to get your life moving again or have a specific fitness goal that I can help you with, please contact me for an initial consultation to see how we can best start your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Emma listens, really listens and delivers. I went to Emma when I was told by the medics I was at risk of osteoporosis (I’m in my late 40s). She tailored my sessions to strength based exercises, packed with variety, great advice, a good ear and made it fun, and challenging too. Results were better than expected. My next bone density scan was that of a woman in her early 30s! I toned up and lost weight in the process too. I would definitely recommend Emma and only wish she still trained in London!

“In recent years I had let a hectic work schedule and subsequent laziness in the evenings get the better of my health and fitness. Not being a fan of gyms, I wasn’t particularly motivated to drag my sorry self into one and shame myself on a treadmill, so I decided I’d probably do better with a personal trainer who would encourage me but more importantly push me not to give up when things got hard. I chose Emma as she has a great balance of being a life coach, personal trainer and could also advise on nutrition. Basically, she is everything you need in one person to help you get the results you want!  
I have been training with her for a few weeks now and she is always infectiously upbeat and happy (even on those morning where you are determined to stay in your bad mood!). She’s really encouraging and knows how to push you just enough to keep you motivated but not feeling bullied. She constantly changes up the exercises to ensure you don’t get bored and you will always leave her sessions feeling like you have pushed yourself and are nearer to your goal.  
I would not hesitate in recommending Emma”
