Emily Irwin

San Francisco, CA

I knew I wanted to work with the human body when I was 16 years old in my first human anatomy and physiology class in high school. While attending Quinnipiac University studying as an Athletic Training/Sports Medicine major, I realized how much I loved personal training so I stuck with it! I have now been personal training for over 10 years and have loved every minute of it! I have had the chance to work with some amazing people with whom I have been by their side when they hit their 60-lb weight loss goal, confidently slip into their slim-fitting wedding dress, finish their first race and lift triple the amount of weight from when they first started training. Some of the most memorable moments for me have been when a client tells me that they gardened all weekend and their back didn't bother them once, their Dr. officially cut their blood pressure medicine dose in 1/2 and when a client tells me how much they were looking forward to the session and seeing me that day! Personal Training is one of the most rewarding careers one could be a professional in and I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to have affected so many people and changed so many lives for the better! If you are a client of mine (present or past), let me just say thank you for entrusting me with helping you get to your fitness goals. Stay consistent with your workouts and make smart decisions when it comes to nutrition. If you are someone who feels a little lost when it comes to exercise, has a big weight loss goal ahead of you or just need some extra motivation and variety, let me help you! workoutwithemily.com

    I will never forget my first day of training with Emily. My muscles were so weak, and I was so out of shape that when I did my first squat and row I literally fell backwards because my muscles didn't even know what to do. I follow Emily's training and advice in everything I do in our sessions and at the gym in my own time. I have successfully progressed--with her help--from a wide stance squat and row to a single leg squat and contralateral one armed row on a cable machine at 20 lbs resistance with solid form and posture. That is progress! That is a good trainer! That is Emily!

    I couldn't have asked for a better trainer, and I'm so lucky to have found Emily. I struggle with several issues in regards to body image and lack of self esteem, and at around the time I found Emily those issues were quickly putting me into a depressive state. But about 4 weeks into my sessions, after Emily got me on board with a weekly fitness calendar and healthier diet, I began to see some major transformations both physically but most importantly mentally. She's brought me unbelievably closer to reaching an ideal state of mind, and through doing her workouts I've found strength in myself that I didn't even know I had. Emily does a fantastic job of introducing new exercises in order to keep the body guessing, while focusing on both one's strengths and weaknesses in order to mark progress and improvement. I have so much love and respect for Emily, and she's truly been a saving grace and an inspiration.

    Emily is a great trainer!

    I was bored and unmotivated to go to the gym yet was rapidly gaining weight and becoming unhealthy.

    Emily provided me with a precise and calculated program that helped me exceed my goals and expectations. Her knowledge and motivation was the recipe I needed to get back into shape. Emily made working both enjoyable and effective.

    I now loving working out, feel healthy and have more energy than ever...

    Emily has changed my outlook on exercise and fitness. I, too, was a part-time exerciser and a full-time avoider of my fitness. With Emily's guidance, I have become more aware of the balance I need to get fit. It's NO picnic to watch what I drink and eat, but working out with Emily has helped me be more accountable for my choices. Do I sit around and lounge or get up and do some lunges? It really helps to have someone there waiting to hear about how successful I have been in a week. I feel great, look better every month, and know I am getting healthier as I type this review. Call Emily today! She is great!

    I HATE exercise! It's something that I have avoided most of my adult life. Gyms did not work. Exercising with friends did not work. I gave up - until one day I picked up Emily's card at the salon where I get my hair cut. Never heard of Emily until the day I called her. She met me at my house and two months later, I'm losing inches, pounds, and my bad attitude! The losses have been wonderful and the gains even better - more strength, positive attitude, better body, and good health...Emily is great - experienced, knowledgeable in both fitness and healthful eating as well as just being a wonderful person! Emily as my personal trainer is the best thing I've ever done for my health and fitness. Theresa Richmond
