You never know who’s watching
It’s true what they say, you just never know who’s watching.
During the past 18 months whilst I have been training at my gym I have been lucky enough to meet a whole host of new people. I say good morning to the regulars and often have a little natter with them on the way into the gym and I’ve been really surprised to find out that so many of them know about my upcoming contest.
To begin with I’d get compliments on how much weight I had lost and how fit I was beginning to look, now I have been getting compliments on how much my shape has changed, how dedicated I am and am often asked if I’m training for a competition. These comments are so encouraging and often from people I wouldn’t expect to hear from which is wonderful! I know I must be on the right track when people are asking if I’m training for a contest as they have quite openly said how much my physique has changed in the past few weeks.
My journey so far has been a tough but enjoyable one, and because of the hard work and dedication I have put in I am now starting to see opportunities arising, the first one being my upcoming contest, without all this hard work I would not only never have thought about getting on stage to compete but I wouldn’t even have a chance of it.
Now I am ready to reveal my next bit of exciting news; I am now a sponsored athlete with MuscleTrax! Me… an athlete?! And a sponsored one at that!
I was approached by Jared, the CEO of MuscleTrax a few weeks ago, as he was looking for people to join the team and help promote his product. I was totally shocked that he’d thought of me and when I asked why, this is what they said;
We approached Emily to come on board with MuscleTrax as it was noticed that she was the hardest one working out in the gym, with grit, sweat and pure determination, whilst being able to juggle a home life with husband and kids. Emily is a true inspiration to the every day woman and we look forward to backing her in all her fitness commitments and goals.
Since joining the team I have had the chance to film a product video and will soon be doing a photo shoot too which I’m very excited about, especially after seeing the results from Kris’s (another MuscleTrax athlete) photo shoot.
Here’s the product video, also featuring Jared and Kris (you will probably have to watch the video through Vimeo, so click the link below);
Because of MuscleTrax, I’ll also be up at BodyPower Expo in May this year on the MuscleTrax stand! So if you’re going to BodyPower this year stop by and say hi!
Not only am I honored to have been thought of to join the team, but I’m very lucky as to help endorse MuscleTrax I get goodies too! Just what I need right now as with all this training I’m doing all of my gym gear is getting too big for me!

Now that was my second exciting announcement, I still have about 3 more in the pipe line that I can’t wait to share but for the moment they need to be kept firmly under wraps! I’m hoping to write a post from my photo shoot next so keep an eye out and if you like reading my posts don’t forget you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram too!
