Jasper Johnson - Enduro Mountain Bike Racer

Emily is a game changer. As soon as we started working together, my energy levels increased and I was able to train harder, recover quicker and train more often.

I'm an Enduro Mountain Bike Racer. With Emily’s guidance my diet and training routines have evolved throughout the year, as we experimented to find out what works best for me at the times when I needed it most. This helped me to get maximum results from my pre-season strength and conditioning and to stay strong and energised through a demanding seven-month race season.

Without doubt, Emily’s support has made a major contribution to my improved performances this year, it has also taught me how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Shackleton Commemoration Expedition – Antarctic Quest 21

"Emily acted as our expedition performance nutritionist and mental wellbeing advisor for a period of two years as we worked our way to deploying on the Shackleton Commemoration Expedition – Antarctic Quest 21. Throughout that time, her advice and guidance to the team, to ensure we remained as physically and mentally fit as possible, even in the face of the Covid Pandemic, was utterly without fault.

Her incredible knowledge and personable engagement with each member of the team, was combined with a pragmatic approach to understanding each individual’s personal needs.

I cannot stress enough how important Emily’s work was for us. It is undoubtedly true that without her input, we would have struggled to be as robust, physically capable and mentally resilient as we were in times of hardship. I would recommend her unreservedly and consider her to be an amazingly talented individual. She is without doubt, one of the most effective and capable dietary advisors available and I hold her in significant esteem. I regard her as a totally professional and totally dependable individual, and would always seek out her advice in whatever expedition or adventure I am next on. I commend her to you."

Astro To Atlantic, British Atlantic Rowing Team

We are a team of four women who play hockey together for our local club. In December 2018 we set out from La Gomera Canary Islands to row a 9 metre boat unsupported 3000 miles to Antigua in the Caribbean.

We were lucky enough to have the help of Emily who assisted us with our dietary plans and nutrition both prior to the race during our long hours of training and also on the row itself. Part of the race rules require each rower to have 60 days worth of food with a minimum daily amount of calories, whilst providing a balanced diet with enough of the essential nutrition, vitamins, minerals and fats which is quite a challenge with limited space but with Emily’s extensive knowledge and understanding she ensured we had everything we needed.

We cannot thank her enough for all her help and would thoroughly recommend her.

PAUL HART, BRITISH ADVENTURER

I have been hugely impressed with Emily since first meeting her some two years ago.

From the outset, her impressive knowledge and keen understanding of the whole sphere of nutrition has enabled her to provide me with excellent advice and guidance on how to manage my own nutritional needs in light of the very heavy physical regime and performance standards I need to meet.

Coupled with this, her own sports and training background has allowed her to assess my own training and development regimes and, based on her input, I have adapted my own routines to work in unison with the revised dietary plans she has provided me with to improve my well-being and overall physical capability.

Emily is a consummate professional and takes her support of clients very seriously and with total dedication.

I have relied on her to give me information on supplements and other foodstuffs and she has guided me through the maze of bewildering information and enabled me to sort the beneficial from the plethora of invalid products.

In setting myself new challenges, I always now seek Emily’s advice on how I should manage my diet.

I use it not only to make informed judgement on the likely positive outcome of my plan, but also how to combine the attainment with being able to enjoy my diet.

Emily is good fun to be around and is always willing to go the ‘extra-mile’ to ensure client success and engagement with her advice.

I recommend Emily to everyone I meet who wants to make positive change to their performance and well-being through their diet.

As I operate a business that facilitates people to achieve peak performance and because I operate on the basis of sublime standards, I can think of no greater endorsement of her skills and capabilities than the fact I regard her as outstanding in her field.”

JOE YORKE, PROFESSIONAL GOLFER

‘I found Emily extremely knowledgeable, in understanding the certain foods that I should avoid and foods/drinks I need to consume whilst competing on the golf course to keep my energy levels high.

Emily was very professional in helping me reach my desired goals and I recommend to any person, athlete or non athlete, to help them with their nutrition.’

ANTONY JINMAN, POLAR EXPLORER

“Emily’s help and support during my training and preparation for my South Pole expedition was a Cornerstone, for the successful 2013/14 expedition.

Emily helped me prepare my expedition meal plan and supplied vitamin sprays to help fight off any infections prior to  departure.

These sprays I have continued to use and since starting them, I have not had a cold.

Emily is a helpful and professional individual who I consider a true friend and always look forward to our next run together ”

RORY FALLON, PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER

“As a professional footballer, diet and nutrition are very important parts of my life.

It is important to have a balanced diet throughout the season and to know what types of food to eat prior to training and games and also for recovery.

In addition to a good balanced diet, it is also important to top up your natural supply of vitamins and minerals.

I met Emily over three years ago and since then, we have worked together to develop an ever changing diet and nutritional plan. The aim of the plan has been to keep body fat low but to reach and maintain optimum energy levels.

Emily has been on hand via email and telephone ever since meeting her and I am very grateful for her help during the run up to the FIFA World Cup 2010, in which I played for New Zealand.

After a long domestic season in the English Championship league, I was grateful for her advice as to how best to restore and replenish in time for the competition.

Thank you Emily for all your hard work!”

DES NEWTON, BRITISH CHALLENGE CHAMPION

This is me, Des ” The Destroyer” Newton” with my newly acquired belt, which I won in an 8 round title fight back in February 2017.

Since turning professional, Emily has helped me with all of my nutrition and supplied me with heaps of information on what I should be eating and when, to help me to perform to the very best I can.

With her knowledge, help and understanding of the human body I have noticed a huge difference in myself.

Before I was in touch with Emily my diet was poor.

Even though I’d train hard on this diet, I didn’t believe that I could perform any better but how wrong was I! During training camps, Emily changed everything but still gave me recipes that I’d enjoy and because of my hectic lifestyle, they didn’t take too long to prepare.

I feel fresh, hydrated and energy levels are through the roof because of Emily’s advice and help.

NEIL DEMUTH, FINANCIAL CONTROLLER, FOOT ANSTEY

“Emily has a fantastic talent of balancing her expansive knowledge of nutrition and fitness whilst also being a very outgoing and sociable trainer.”

Managing a full time professional role as well as the challenges of a young family, I found it difficult to focus on the exercise and nutrition needed to meet my running aims.

Whilst I felt that I was training well, Emily was able to introduce strength and conditioning work to my programme which vastly improved my running performance.

At the same time, she gave me clear direction on nutrition and hydration to support my training regime.  The results were great, and I owe a lot to Emily for giving me the confidence and direction in running my first marathon.  I had injury setbacks, but Emily was always on hand to support.

I have completed many events since, and always refer to the clear direction Emily had given.  I firmly believe that working with Emily has improved my performance.

If you want someone supportive, friendly and is focused on your aims, Emily is the support you need.

Callum Rayment, Senior National Swimmer

Emily’s knowledge and advice has helped me massively to improve my swimming performance.

Carefully structured eating plans and constant communication has allowed me to train to my optimum and cut the necessary weight to be most efficient.

I would 100% recommend!

R.W, HEALTH PROFESSIONAL

Emily is no ordinary personal trainer.

She is a personal trainer who genuinely cares and is concerned about your physical health and well being and will do everything possible to help you achieve your goals.

With Emily’s support, guidance and nutritional expertise I was able to achieve my goal of losing 3 stone in 6 months and now have a much healthier lifestyle.

KIRSTEN, RETAIL MANAGER

I first met Emily in 2009. She helped me back to fitness after a longer period of illness.

Emily is very flexible and accommodating adapting the exercise sessions to both indoor and out, varying physical ability as well as fitting around a busy schedule.

DR TERESA COMPTON, LECTURER, BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE, PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY

Emily is a lover of boxing pads (because you will punch them into submission) and is encouraging beyond words.

I never would have run so far, so fast, or thought I could do all the crazy things I do right now without you.

That’s the best thing I got from personal training is you helped me believe in myself!

There was also a moment where I was getting rid of some old clothes that I thought didn’t fit anymore……until I tried them on and realised that they did.

DR MIKE BURDON, CONSULTANT IN SPORT AND EXERCISE MEDICINE,
HEAD OF SPORTS MEDICINE, PURE SPORTS MEDICINE, LONDON
CONSULTANT AT BUPA READING

I have known Emily for several years now and would fully recommend her services.

Her knowledge is exceptional and her caring, holistic approach ensures very specialist and patient focused care.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to my patients.

LOUISE LOXTON, EDUCATION PROFESSIONAL

In 2010, I was Associate Professor at the University of Plymouth and Acting Head of School, Secondary and Further Education Studies.

My professional position rendered me quite desk bound and as a result of this I sought assistance to maintain levels of fitness; fortunately I worked with Emily.

Possibly 3 times a week my day would begin at 7.15am with a warm up and a run around The Hoe, through the Barbican and back up ‘killer hill’ to my home.

Our sessions would then turn to weight training, some boxing (which I loved) and finally planks and wind down activities.

I loved and looked forward to every session. Emily is an engaging trainer who certainly knows how to motivate, develop and sustain levels of fitness for a wide range of people of all ages and levels.

Emily’s warm nature and natural ability to empathise with individuals are her endearing qualities.

Her subject knowledge is second to none and I can recommend her highly to you as a professional trainer.

POLLY LOVELL - PRINCIPLE UTC PLYMOUTH

Emily created a brilliant training plan for me that improved my fitness and prepared me for 150K walk across tough terrain.’ A combination of nutritional advice, HIIT and developing my leg resilience ensured I was well prepared and actually ran some sections with ease!’

‘I would highly recommend Emily’s PT sessions they are fun and you see results quickly!’

SARAH HOOPER

Emily has been working with me since March to improve my fitness and loose some weight!

She instantly made me feel very comfortable, she is brilliant at what she does, her positive encouragement throughout the sessions is great. She’s been able to give me advice on how to keep my fitness up during the week whilst I work away which has been invaluable.

Emily has been incredibly flexible due the nature of my work and my times changing sometimes and her fitting me in when she can. Emily you're great- keep it up! Thank you so much!

ELOISE GRUNDY

I found Emily through a Google search as I was trying to find PT services in Plymouth. After my Mum contacted Emily, within a few days, we have planned to meet up and had set some goals and targets and what I wanted to gain from my sessions. Emily was thorough in the initial consultation.

We planned 3 x 1 hour sessions a week at convenient times that fitted around my studies. My first session highlighted to Emily my strengths and weaknesses and from then on we worked together to make sure that my fitness improved. Each session we did cardio and when I had a few niggles, Emily was very good at changing what exercises we did.

Each session was very enjoyable and I had a lot of fun training with Emily improving my health.
