Soulful Sunday is a weekly dose of inspiration from busy Chicago women who still manage to stay balanced no matter what their career—or life—throws their way.
Soul Sister: Emily Hutchins from On Your Mark Coaching + Training.
With a background in Exercise Science; the honor of serving as a Nike master trainer, run coach, and spokesperson; and a dozen certifications under her belt, Hutchins is constantly pushing herself—and her clients—to achieve the next best level of fitness. The rock-solid rock star behind one of Chicago's hottest top independent gyms has been in the industry for more than 15 years, but she's already achieved a lifetime's worth of accomplishments.
How she unwinds:
"To decompress after a long week or day, I love taking my dog, Jack, to the Montrose dog beach or for a long walk along the lake. Every once in awhile, I'll indulge in some Cheetos, too! I fully believe that you need to take time for yourself every day to relax and balance your life—not just on your day off."
"Since I'm always busy working at OYM or traveling, I make it a priority to call friends or family at least twice a week. It's important to connect with the ones you love either face-to-face or voice-to-voice—not via text."
