Fresh off seven years of university—a political science undergrad and a master’s degree in journalism—Emily showed up at Madlab in 2009 lost and confused, uncertain of her next steps in life.
“After just a few short weeks, I knew the Madlab community would become a big part of my life for years to come. The more fit I became, and the more I got to know the human beings I worked out with, the more sold I was on the people around me.”
What Emily cherishes as a coach is simple: she’s most interested in taking the couch potato from the 30th percentile to the 75th percentile—in making fitness an integral part of their lives.
“I find this far more rewarding than helping an elite athlete go from the 95th to the 98th percentile. For me, there’s nothing more rewarding than watching the 40-year-old woman find the courage to climb the rope for the first time.”
Emily believes developing quality relationships and friendships with her clients is crucial to their success.
“I believe that if the pursuit of fitness is attached to friendships and community, you’re more likely to show up everyday and continue making fitness a priority until you’re 90 years old.”
It goes without saying, this place has never been just about health and physical fitness to Emily. The fitness she has achieved has just been but a side note to the supportive community she knows will always be here there for her.
“Nothing warms my heart more than when our clients embrace this community and become more fit than they ever could have imagined in the process.”

We all know that consistency is key, and to be consistent you need to stay free from injury. Coaches at Madlab teach you the why, what and how of exercise, instead of just showing you once and moving on. That’s why you start with a Personal Trainer, and work at your own pace.
Group + PT = fitness for fun & purpose
Now you’re ready to start group training alongside some great people. Your coach for life will keep you on track with regular 1 on 1s, but the social environment, the community and the friends you make will give you a different sort of push, and will help you reach new heights of fitness.
