Re­gional ac­co­lade for per­sonal trainer

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

APERSONAL trainer has won a re­gional award for her ser- vices.

Emily Lakin, from Mac­cles­field, has been named Per­sonal Trainer of the Year Cheshire 2016 at the Ac­qui­si­tion International Busi­ness Awards.

Emily, who runs Em­power Per­sonal Train­ing, based at Bolling­ton Health and Leisure and the Tyther­ing­ton Club, said: “I feel ex­tremely hon­oured that my hard work and com­mit­ment has been recog­nised with this award.

“It is my hope that it will help me ex­pand my client base fur­ther. I see this award as recog­ni­tion of what I have achieved so far and hope it will fur­ther aid my com­pany’s de­vel­op­ment.

“I am pas­sion­ate about con­tin­u­ing to de­velop my­self, my busi­ness and welcome any op­por­tuni- ties that come my way.”

Emily is a per­sonal trainer, fit­ness in­struc­tor and swim­ming coach work­ing in Mac­cles­field, Alder­ley Edge and Knutsford.

She said: “I have al­ways led and en­joyed an ac­tive lifestyle. From the age of 13, I as­sisted in swim­ming lessons af­ter school. I un­der­took my first swim- ming in­struc­tor award at the age of 16.

“I have been very for­tu­nate in the op­por­tu­ni­ties that have come my way through the or­gan­i­sa­tions I have worked for.

“As with any pro­fes­sion there are al­ways hur­dles, but I strive to over­come them with a smile on my face.”

As well as help­ing others get fit, Emily has also set her­self a per­sonal goal for char­ity and will be walk­ing the Great Wall of China in Oc­to­ber for the NSPCC.

Emily, who hopes to com­plete the 50km route in five days, trekking for up to seven hours a day, said: “This is far from a nice walk and no small feat of a chal­lenge. In fact, I will be pushed to chal­lenge my­self im­mensely as I trek along some of the most re­mote parts of the Great Wall.

“I will be walk­ing along long nar­row stretches that are quite tricky to nav­i­gate around, as well as climb­ing and descend­ing thou­sands of steps with large drops ei­ther side.”
