A Kiwi living in California commuting to Europe. I am a published author, speaker and advisor to the industry. I contribute to international business forums, trend panels, women's events and serve on a number of boards. I'm obsessed with what happens next in the business of fitness. My favorite thing is to ignite purpose-driven people and projects.

The Late Stephen Tharrett
Co-founder ClubIntel & Author of Fitness Management, 4th Edition
I have over forty years of experience in the fitness industry and have served as a SVP and CEO of fitness firms, served as the President of IHRSA and presently serve on the Advisory Board for the Association of Fitness Studios. My company ClubIntel conducts much of the consumer and operational research on the global club and boutique industry, so I feel well-versed in what makes for a great boutique studio. Yet, Emma's understanding of the boutique fitness business is unsurpassed, eclipsing the wealth of knowledge my firm has acquired over the years, and outdistancing the rest of the field. What makes Emma different, and what makes her information binge-worthy, is not just her knowledge, but her passion, her energy and her unrelenting love for the business of fitness.
Director, The Leisure Database Company Ltd

For those planning or dreaming of opening a studio, it's the essential benchmark."
