Emily Ireland

Up Close:

Emily grew up in the small town of Wilmington, Ohio. Growing up she was highly involved with athletics, through sports such as cross country, track, soccer, and basketball, and years of CrossFit experience. Basketball and soccer became Emily’s primary pursuit at competitive levels up until the time she began her college education. As a current student within the Health Sciences program at the University of Cincinnati with a focus on Physical Therapy, Emily’s passion for health and fitness is supported and congruent with her educational focus. Through college, Emily has continued to stay active by training for and running many 5k’s, a 10k, and half marathon, remaining involved in recreational sports, consistently remaining dedicated to the gym, and being involved in a local boxing gym. Growing up in the gym has brought Emily the strong desire to influence and help others grow in the same way she has through her fitness journey from a young age. She strongly believes possessing the knowledge of physical health is only so valuable if it is not effectively applied to our daily lives.
