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

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.
