Edit Emma HS

EMMA

DIRECTOR

LEVEL 1 TRAINER

With a passion for fitness and a desire for growth and a community she could thrive in, It didn’t take long for Emma to fall in love with the Sheer Transformations culture.  She was so invested in the ‘Sheer Family’ she became a partner and director of the company after just 6 months and has never looked back.  Emma has quite an eclectic background, and has been an active, physical person for as long as she can remember. From a young age Emma was always dancing, often making her family sit through my performances in the lounge room. She continued that theme all the way up to university level, dabbling in commercial dance and musical theatre, and ending up with a degree specialising in contemporary dance. Emma also minored in nutrition, psychology and human movement studies; the perfect set up for personal training! Initially, personal training was just going to be something to do between dance jobs, but she ended up absolutely falling in love with everything the job encompassed. Over seven years on, she still just as fascinated about movement and getting people fit, healthy and strong.  Emma loves drawing on different training methods for a holistic approach to training, health and life.
