“I love training back and have a love-hate relationship with legs. My goal in the gym everyday is to lift as heavy as I can and to progress with my lifts. I do not change workouts and I keep everything consistent. My current goal is to gain size specifically in my hamstrings, back, and glutes.”
Besides fitness, Emily grinds in her medical work as well, “I’m a family nurse practitioner focusing on pain management as well as a certified personal trainer.” Emily allows contact for her personal training programs via her Instagram account, @emmycanale.
