Whether that client is a quarterback or a stay-at-home mom, what we teach here at the studio is designed to translate into the real world.
At On Your Mark, our highly-educated staff are focused on functional movement. Our small group classes and personal training are designed around what our muscles are intended to do, and how the different parts of your body work together to achieve optimum performance, whether it’s to run 26.2, chase a 2-year-old or simply fit into your favorite jeans.
Equipped with the best education, tools, and technique, our passionate and well-educated trainers excel at inspiring you to work hard to help you meet your goals—it really is all about you. OYM makes your workouts intense and enjoyable at the same time, obviously why wouldn’t we want to be having fun?
Our clients range from every day people to professional athletes, and while everyone’s fitness goals are different, everyone wants to move freely throughout their day. At OYM, we combine the latest fitness and nutrition science with good, old fashioned sweat to help you achieve functional, life-altering results. And plenty of fist pumps and high-fives along the way.
Emily’s philosophy is quite simple, train hard, but train smart. Your body is built on a foundation of 4 principals; function, endurance, athleticism and recovery. With these 4 principals, you are building a lifetime of increased performance whether you are striving to lose those last couple pounds or completing your 100th Ironman. To her, that doesn’t matter, but what does matter is that you are most efficient with what you have, which in turn is a long life of great health.
Emily’s background in Exercise Science has equipped her with the knowledge of how to develop and build a place where people of all walks of life and abilities are able to become better, stronger, and/or faster, whatever their goal is.
As a Nike Master Trainer and Nike+ Run Coach, Emily serves as a spokesperson for the brand, develops athletic content, leads Chicago area Nike classes and runs, makes personal appearances on behalf of the brand and helps lead Nike brand experiences worldwide (Moscow, Toronto Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago).
Emily’s vision of OYM is a place where people can become better versions of themselves; to walk out better, stronger, and faster than when they walked through the doors.
