EM CRAWLEY AFA GRADUATE
Em completed Cert III & IV with AFA and is now working at Anytime Fitness Currimundi on the Sunshine Coast
Check out Em’s story below:
What motivated you to pursue a career in the fitness industry?
I was lucky enough to have one of the most memorable experiences with my own personal journey and transformation, coming from a larger mum of three young children, lacking energy, drive and mentally struggling. I wanted to help others experience their own personal journey in a special way, making them grow within and helping them feel confident again.
Was there a specific event or experience that sparked your interest?
Over my time my confidence grew and I began to fall in love with myself again, growing stronger physically and mentally and getting the courage to get up on stage as a fitness model in the ICN body building world. I also entered the transformation category where I took out the Sunshine Coast transformation champion.
How has the knowledge gained from your Cert III and IV influenced your career and professional success?
Gaining extra knowledge has helped me be able to assist my clients with their individual training needs by providing them with the specific exercises they need to perform.
Can you share any success stories or memorable moments from your career as a personal trainer?
Some words from Yoshe – this was 12 months ago.
“I decided to go down to Golden Beach after breakfast yesterday morning and sat under the sun on the rocks. After half an hour we were ready to leave and for the past 20yrs I have always needed someone to help me up because I have cracked both my patella’s. Anyway, my husband couldn’t position himself in front of me to assist with lifting. Instead, he approached from behind to lift me up by my arms. Before I knew it, I had managed to stand on my own. And no pain! So so happy (~ Thanks Em for helping me believe in my body!”
I stand here today and say I am a super proud coach. This lady is now running, her weight is down and her energy levels are up. She is a happy go lucky kinda lady. She has come leaps and bounds and is still kicking massive goals. Well done my superstar 🤩🙌 your transformation is nothing less than amazing.
How do you manage to stay motivated and consistent with your own fitness routine?
So, long story short, I still have a personal trainer myself. I love having my trainer, Mick. He helps me stay consistent and on track with all my training needs. Best coach ever. Funny how even a coach needs a coach 😁
