Ironman triathlete & Pilates Instructor
Connect with Emily Young
Emily is an Ironman triathlete and marathon runner. She got the bug for long distance after her first marathon attempt saw her win her age group, and become 5th lady overall in Gran Canaria. She is continuing to train at Ironman distance in the hope to qualify for the world championships in Kona.
Alongside her training, Emily works in Yorkshire as a Pilates Instructor, and believes that Pilates is the best thing for athletes to keep in peak condition to meet the physical and mental demands of their sport. Emily knows that to be successful at endurance sports it is essential to be strong, fit and mobile. She spends a lot of time in the gym and on the mat, as well as putting the hours into the swim, bike and run.
Later this year, Emily will qualify as a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, and focuses much of her energy in fueling her body correctly to enable her to perform at her best.
