EMILY GUERRA

Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor

My life has always been about fitness. If I wasn’t playing a sport, I was finding a way to stay in shape and because of that mindset I found myself jumping into the fitness world and making it my career path. I have, at some capacity, been training and coaching over the last 10 years and couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else! I am a huge advocate for movement and believe that it is the biggest key to staying happy and healthy. I am my clients’ number one fan; from the moment we meet and through every change, big or small. Those changes that I am referring to do not start with the physical ones, but it is the emotional and mental shifts that occur once someone hits his or her milestones. It is the best and most rewarding feeling to be a part of that.

I am incredibly passionate about the corrective and preventive exercise realm but can train anywhere from weight loss to recovery. I have experience in Foundation Training, MELT Rolling, Stick Mobility, and RockPod Cupping. I love to be creative with movements and find ways to turn them into exercise. Functional fitness is so important and I believe that with that mindset the goal will always be, “I want to move when I am 100 years old!”
