where it all started
I’m Emily Skender.
I’m 25, from the Midwest, newly married to my high school sweetheart, and a fur momma to the cutest puppy in the whole wide world - Maui.
For the past four years my life has been a total whirlwind.
In January 2014, I was riding the hot mess express. I’m talking… ALL aspects of my life. I was a super senior college dropout. I was living in my mom’s basement, because I was too broke to pay my rent. And to top it all off, I was 50 pounds overweight. (We’re talking pre sharing my fitness journey on the gram here.)
Luckily though, January 2014 was the month that changed my life forever.
I somehow figured out that everything in my life would stay broken until I started to actually take care of myself and my health, so I started working out + changing my diet with my now husband.
We started doing P90X3 in the back room of my mom’s basement, and fell in LOVE! After six months I had lost a little over 45 pounds and for once in my life – I instilled a freaking belief system in myself again!
(Because let’s be real.. if I can not miss a beat in my workouts or nutrition for six freaking months, I can do ANYTHING – right?!)
I started to share my fitness journey online, decided I wanted to formally help other women change their lives through fitness as well, and became a health and fitness coach!
Now I run a six figure online fitness coaching business from my little home office! (Oh and to any concerned parties… I am officially out of my mom’s basement #forlife)
Not only do I help women commit to their own fitness journey, but I’ve also mentored over 1,400 women to start their own online fitness businesses as well – because if you ask me.. life is all about FREEDOM baby! Helping women get physically and financially fit is kinda my jam.
If I find a fix for my own life, health, fitness, etc. there’s nothing I love more (well okay, except maybe my husband) than to share those tips, fixes, and life hacks with YOU!
