Meet Emilie

About Me

Hi, I am Emilie Malik, I was born in Paris 44 years ago. I consider myself lucky to have started dancing at the age of 3 and had a mother who loved cooking. I grew up in a really sporty family and practiced Contemporary Dancing by following the world-renowned Martha Graham movement concept until the age of 20.

It was after graduating from the University of Dauphine in Paris and whilst working in the City of London in Investment banking that I rediscovered my passion for dance and exercise. I devoted my evenings to the gym, attending a diverse range of classes and old school aerobic, dance classes.

It didn’t take me a long time to swap careers and dedicate my life to Fitness. For the last 20 years, I have been teaching children, adults, post-natal and the over fifties, a variety of classes from Pilates, Spinning, Aqua aerobics, Step, Zumba, Barre concept and many others whilst raising my two sons.

I also had to deal with health issues mainly thyroid problems, this drove me to broaden my knowledge from Physical Fitness to GLOBAL – WHOLE BODY HOLISTIC FITNESS: Mind, Health, Body and Nutrition. It’s so enjoyable to pass on my knowledge to others and see the satisfaction in their smiles on a daily basis. I know fitness is constantly changing, so I make time to attend further training regularly a year in order to learn, develop my skills and stay at the forefront of the industry.

To achieve your Full Fitness potential, there is not just one exercise which is going to work! We are all unique and we can only try! Life is an equation with numerous components.

Nowadays, with the internet you can exercise anywhere, anytime and with EM-Fitness I can now offer to coach you in my studio, in your home or even online! There’s something for everybody – on or off the mat! Discover the best in yourself by joining me on a new journey.

I will work with you to achieve your goals and aspirations.
