It is very rare when our guest can trace their trigger moment all the way back to early childhood. Emily Duncan's came at about age 8 when her dance instructor made a comment about her body type that sent her down a dark spiral of eating disorders, body dysmorphia and spent years trying to find a healthy balance and relationship with food again. Emily found an immense source of help and internal motivation once she started strength training. From there she became a professional bikini competitor, competing in over a dozen shows and even taking first place in her class in 2016 at the NPC Jr. USA National Championships.
This episode can be summarized by this amazing quote from Emily: "Don't rely on the energy of the outside world to fuel you. Find out what makes YOU strong and what makes YOU awesome, and run with it." Emily lives a life ever forward through TENACITY - in fact it is her apparel line - and you will find an abundance of it in this episode and in her story.
