And when they come to the end of their split, they simply repeat.

Supplement routine

To stay fresh with such a full-on workout schedule, it’s important that Em keeps their body stocked up with supplements that support their training.

Em’s Story

Em began their fitness journey at the age of 14. They have been into fitness ever since, and they are now in their mid-20s. Em shares their passion for fitness with over 70,000 Instagram followers.

“I've been working out since I was about 14 years old pretty consistently. I got into it from sports, I played a lot of sports growing up and I really wanted to get better at them, so I started working out more at home, and then I started really liking it. I was at home doing all the push-ups, the crunches and just trying to build up some strength. I liked the way that I felt and looked and how I was excelling in some of these sports, and it just went from there. I also grew up in a very active household — my parents were very active, and so were my brothers. They always led me with a very active lifestyle, and I wanted to live up to that too.”

Career highlights:

  • Captain and MVP of hockey team; won bronze at OFSAA
  • Box lacrosse champions
  • Came 3rd in 5k race

Go-to cheat meal

Em works out 6-7 times a week, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the finer things in life. Like pizza — their go-to cheat meal.

After completing an internship with Myprotein, Emily returned to university to finish her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management and Marketing. With experience in lifestyle writing, Emily aims to entertain and educate through her work. Her focuses include recipes, real and inspiring stories, and working with writers to help provide easy-to-digest evidence-based research. Her work on recipes has been previously featured in The Supplement magazine, with a particular focus on high-protein, nutritious meals, plus advice on how to properly fuel your body. Outside of work, Emily’s top priority is food. She’s a self-professed star baker and a connoisseur of all things baked. In her spare time, she’s either cooking up a storm, our looking out for the opportunity to try out Manchester’s newest restaurants. But as a huge fan of carbs, if it’s not pasta or pasta-adjacent, she’s not interested. If she’s not in the kitchen, she’s tucked up with a book for an early night, or you’ll find her in the gym working up a sweat. Afterall, all those carbs require quite the appetite.
