Tara Lyn Emerson is a California native and has been an active athlete ever since she could hold a tennis racket in her hand. Fun fact: her father is a professional tennis coach. So you could say that coaching and athletics is in her DNA. She has been a spinning enthusiast for the past 12 years and even as a teenager loved lifting weights at the gym. Tara is an ACE personal trainer and weight management specialist, a certified Spinning instructor and TRX instructor. She creates a high-energy workout with all of today’s top music hits, calorie burning moves and the motivation to push you to the next fitness level. Class Pass named her one of LA's best cycling instructors in 2016 and she is a featured trainer on fitness platforms such as Popsugar Fitness, iFit by NordicTrack, TRX Training Club and FabFitFun.
Making her body and mind strong has always been an important aspect of her life. Tara suffers from a neuromuscular disease in the CMT family that she was diagnosed with as a young adult. She has nerve damage in her lower legs and feet that has contributed to progressive atrophy. Balance and strength is a struggle. Maintaining muscle she has will help with degenerating damage to her legs. Tara has not let her disease control her life. Daily she refuses to be a victim to the hand life dealt her.
Developing core strength is Tara's secret weapon to fighting her disease. Physical core strength and spiritual core strength makes her tough enough to overcome a condition that is incurable. Tara encourages her clients and students by saying, "You don't have to be the best athlete in the room. You just have to be the best version of you." Tara lives these words every day in her own life by developing muscular efficiency and strength.
In addition to weight training and spinning, Tara enjoys keeping active with salsa dancing, yoga, paddleboarding and tennis.
