A Day in the Life of a Fitness Fanatic

Hey, you guys!

Have you ever wondered what fitness instructors do during the day when they aren’t teaching? Well, every day is slightly different for me, but that’s exactly what I love about my “job”—new adventures, clients, goals, and dreams!

Here’s what gets me out of bed to make confident, energized, and smiley people.

Welcome to the world of Emily!

7:00 A.M. — Wake up, Drink Water, and Shower

I usually wake up as soon as my alarm goes off in the morning. Before I hop in the shower, I drink a full glass of water to get my day started. I then focus on my breathing (in the shower) to calm my nerves and mentally prepare for the day. 

7:30 A.M. Big Breakfast

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 big scoop of almond butter

This meal has stayed constant in the past few months. Not only is it super filling, but it also gives me the right kind of energy to start my morning adventures.

8:00 A.M. Train a Fabulous Client

Every client has his or her set of goals, but the main focuses tend to be weight loss, building body mass, and increasing endurance. Because my clients and I always have fun, I really look forward to this part of my day!

9:30 A.M. Take a Fitness Class

I try to get a workout in even though I also instruct my own classes and train with my clients. I take this time to work on my own body. Flybarre, for example, compliments all the other exercises that I do, which makes it the perfect fitness class to fit into my busy schedule.

10:30 A.M. Instruct a Flywheel Class

I rock out and ride for 45 minutes to some incredible tunes with equally incredible riders. Never tried an indoor cycling or Flywheel class before? Come check out one of my classes! I promise to take excellent care of you! #NEVERCOAST

11:30 A.M. Shower #2

Yes, I shower two to three times a day. So much SWEAT!

12:oo P.M. Travel, Snack, and Listen to Music

I usually run from session to session, but when traveling longer distances, I take the train, or, if I’m in a hurry, grab an Uber. While traveling, snack on an RXBAR and scroll through Spotify Discover Weekly to find new music.

12:30 P.M. Train ANOTHER fabulous Client


1:30 P.M. Lunch with Friends (or Solo)

I use this time to hit the reset button and get focused for the second half of my day. Sweetgreen is usually my go-to. My current favorite lunch is their Chicken + Brussels salad (with Kale for greens) of course!

2:30 P.M. Plan Life Goals, Fine Tune my Playlist, Plan Workouts, Write

Yes, I spend a portion of every day planning my future goals. I am constantly thinking of ways to grow and to inspire others to find their maximum amount of joy. I also use this time to make playlists for my upcoming classes, create workouts for my clients, and write articles like this one! If I have time to spare, I pop into Lululemon for some retail therapy!

5:30 P.M. Flywheel or Train Another Client

Every day is different, but I either have more fun with my Fly family or my amazing clients!

9:00 P.M. Shower #3

The “work” day is done! Phew! Once I get home, I eat dinner and use the down time to decompress. Zucchini noodles (Zoodles) with ground turkey and tomato sauce is a personal favorite!

I always aim to get into bed by 11 p.m. to catch a full eight hours of sleep. It’s the secret to my crazy amount of energy during the day! Shh!

Thanks for coming along with me on my city-wide journey. I hope to see you soon in real life!
