“I can never thank you enough for the way you carry out what I hoped someone would do in helping people in the group you take.” PARC Run Group Member
“Your leadership and role model of happiness, positivity and fun is the most totally effective program!” PARC Run Group Member
We also asked the woman of the moment a few questions herself.
What do you do in your downtime?
I go trail running in the bush, mountains basically off road. Enjoying the scenery and it’s my ‘me time’. It’s my meditation and relaxation time.
What advice would you give to anyone starting their own fitness journey?
As cliché as it sounds, just take the first step! For most taking the first step is the hardest part but once you have done that it gets easier from there. A lot of the times we have a belief around what the first step should look like. “When I’m 5 kg lighter I will join the pump class” or “ In the new year I will start training for my first run”. The time is now, just take the first step, we all start somewhere.
Well done Emme, you’re an inspiration to us all, and we are all incredibility proud of you!!
