My name is Emily Burkhardt and I am beyond excited to be joining TheLoDown team.
Every week, from now until however long you'll have me, I'll be sharing with you some of my favorite exercise tips. But, before we get started, I'd like to tell you a little more about my life and fitness journey!
My journey includes a lot of different jobs and experiences that have all brought me to this point in my life. The one thing that has always remained constant, however, is my desire to wake up in the morning and inspire others. In fact, I think of my mission as my true "job" in life and it brings me so much joy to be able to do it on a daily basis.
When I am not in the studio or with my clients, I am traveling with my other half, Zach, finding live music to dance to, being a foodie, or training for my next marathon.
Before jumping into the adult fitness world, I worked with children whose ages ranged anywhere from six weeks to six years old. It was while working with them that I learned the importance of muscles and kinetic energy in relation to the human body.
You'll often hear me say:
Get yourself to class and I will take care of you from there.
I think that statement really embodies my vision for everyone to make progress collectively instead of individually. Making people smile, regardless their age, is also another goal of mine. Setting this daily intention has allowed me to create a massive amount of positive energy that I bring to all my classes and client sessions.
Just in case you couldn't already tell, I'm super excited to see where we all go next! I get that for some of you, the general idea of staying fit may be more or less a chore or unwanted task, but I want to flip those feelings upside down and make fitness fun!
If you promise to step outside your comfort zone, I'll promise to always keep the workouts fresh and full of energy.
Let’s all live a fun, fit life together!
Peace & Love,
