Behind the Blogger

Hey you! 

My name is Emily. In summer 2014 I decided to make the drastic decision to leave my corporate marketing job to pursue a career in fitness. Though it happened quickly, this decision was not impulsive, becoming a voice in the health and fitness industry has been a long-time dream of mine.

Since a very young age I have been fascinated with health and fitness.  Unfortunately, it began with a very unhealthy view of food and body image. I remember being 13 years old, in the 7th grade, and was alarmed when I noticed how my stomach stuck out from my tube top in a photo. All the other girls in the photo still had stick-thin bodies that hadn’t matured nearly as much as mine. You could say I was an “early bloomer.” I misunderstood the attention on my growing chest and developing hips and started to feel uncomfortable in my own skin (and the 3+ hours daily I spent looking in full-length mirrors at dance rehearsals didn’t help). The early ages of online search engines made it easy for a young teenager to find how to lose weight, and that is exactly what I did.  The weight came off fast once I learned how to calculate calories, an unfortunate discovery that resulted in low energy and self-esteem.

After nearly a decade of trying to attain an unrealistic body for my natural-born shape, I knew something needed to change. I decided to concentrate on building lean muscle, increasing my metabolism, and falling in love with my body.  Fitness helped me find balance, self-confidence, and strength (both physically and mentally). But I don’t want to reap the benefits alone! Every woman deserves to strive towards being her very best.  There are plenty of blogs, influences, and celebrities out there that will sell you (false) claims on how to tone up, cleanse, or lose weight. However, it all sends the same message – you are not good enough. That’s what Life in Spandex is here to change! I am here prepared to yell this, loudly, until you fully understand – you are beautiful, you are strong, and you are perfectly imperfect!
