Emily Robertson – Bio

Emily Robertson

An adventurer at heart, I’ve loved the outdoors all my life. Exploring the local trails became a hobby very quickly during my time in Stellenbosch. I’m a Sports Scientist with an Honours Degree in High Performance Sport and I’m currently busy with my Masters in Biomechanics.

My love for research forms part of the way I coach. Translating research into your program allows me to help you to reach your goals and get the most out of your program as well as preventing outdated workouts or techniques from being used. Interacting with people and seeing my athletes reach their goals is a huge part of what motivates me every day.

Finding the balance between working, studying, faith and community is what I’m working on. I believe in being consistent in whatever you do, this reflects in how I coach.

My goal races for the next 5 years are:

The Otter
Dryland Traverse
UTCT 65km
Marathon Mont Blanc

Running is a passion of mine and want to do it for the rest of my life.
