Personal trainer Emiko at 41, performing the Yogini on the pole.

I’ve been active most of my life--from formal dance training in my teens, to becoming an award-winning pole dance performer and personal trainer in my 40s and even honing my sprinting skills at 51. And while I still train intensely at 53 (and love it!), I have to be a lot more strategic and thoughtful with how I program my exercises, nutrition and recovery than I did when I was 40 (and most certainly the decades before).


The menopausal transition amplifies and accelerates all the natural changes that occur with aging and brings it's own unique set of challenges (good times!), so it’s necessary to evolve our fitness training to keep up with our shifting priorities and goals–and to also significantly slow down (even reverse) the effects of aging. 


Now, solidly in my 50’s, my primary fitness goals are to stay healthy, supple, strong, spry and injury-free so I can keep enjoying my favorite activities–hiking, sprinting and bragging about carrying all of my groceries from car to kitchen in one trip–now and well into the future.  

Hi, I'm Emiko, your go-to certified personal trainer, online fitness coach, and fellow midlifer. If you’re looking for a female personal trainer who gets the over-50 life, you've found her. 

I’d love to help you enjoy an even fuller life with fewer limits and make midlife your best life.
