Emily Zaler was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona and grew
up with a passion for soccer as well as fitness.
Emily went on to play soccer in both the Pac10 and Big12 conferences,
for The University of Oregon, as well as The University of Missouri.
After suffering a career-ending injury, Emily is now using her personal
experience and passion for fitness to help others reach their fitness
and performance goals. Her injury has been a blessing in disguise,
as it has now driven her to become a fitness entrepreneur.
As a former Division 1 collegiate soccer player, Emily is now channeling
her passion for the game into a new, bold attempt to take the fitness
industry by storm.
At only 22 years old, Emily already has experience training Professional
Athletes, Miss America contestants, and Collegiate Athletes, as
well as general fitness with clients ranging six years old all the
way to the age of 70. Emily recently completed an internship at
the prestigious Athletes' Performance in Tempe, AZ where she trained
professional athletes from a wide range of sports, including NBA,
NHL, NFL and MLB superstars. In addition to her passion for fitness,
Emily also has an extensive background in nutrition, which she studied
as part of the Exercise and Wellness Program at Arizona State University.
Not only a certified trainer and fitness model, Emily's love for
cooking and fitness inspired her to create fitness and clean eating
recipe book, the EZ Whey. As a Figure Athlete, she has personally
experienced how boring and repetitive most typical .contest diets'
are. In preparation for her shows, Emily developed delicious, creative
recipes that fit into any diet plan, whether for competition or
just healthy living. The result is The EZ Whey Cookbook, the hottest
spreading cookbook in the fitness industry! All recipes in the cookbook
are easy to prepare and a huge improvement over the typical, boring
flavors most people and recipes associate with the word diet. The
book is not only for competitors, but rather for anyone looking
to live a healthy lifestyle using simple, easy recipes. All recipes
in the book include the macro-nutrient breakdown, so you know
exactly what you are getting nutritionally with each and every one.

I am a very self-motivated individual, and love having large goals
and obstacles in front of me. As soon as I
reach those goals, I immediately set new goals to work towards.
I am also motivated by the fact that others to look to me to lead
by example. l love being the motivation for others to reach their
goals, whether they are
personal, performance, or fitness related.
I am extremely driven, and inspired when I set a new challenge for
myself. I have learned over the past year that anything truly is
possible if you have the right mindset and attitude to make it happen.
Set big goals for yourself and make them happen. I pride myself
on five core values. I challenge you all to find your core values
and live by them.
Mine Core Values: Determination, Dedication, Motivation, Discipline,
and Drive. Through all these things I will be successful at reaching
I am also inspired by role models in the industry, such as Clark
Bartram. It was only October of 2009 that I met Clark, and I am
now honored to be part of his TEAM SCI FIT. Hearing him speak at
the Fitness Model
International Conference inspired me to start making things happen.
I applied every piece of advice that Clark
and Gary Warren gave us and can now say I am part of the SCI FIT
team! In only five months since meeting
Clark, my life has changed. He is a great role model in the industry
for me to look up to.

To make a name for myself in the Fitness Industry and help others
reach their goals with both training, as well as with my cookbook.
I plan on expanding my brand, The EZ Whey LLC, what is now just
The EZ Whey Cookbook, in to a large company with training, nutrition,
recipe books, packaged food items, apparel, my own supplement line,
and eventually The EZ Whey Café.
I also plan to continue pursuing a fitness-modeling career, and
develop my brand myself in as many ways as
possible. I consider myself a fitness entrepreneur, not just a fitness
model. In the next few months I have some exciting opportunities
in the works, and I cannot wait to see what the rest of 2010 brings!
Look out for me not only as a model and author, but as a published
magazine columnist, online columnist, host, trainer, and spokesmodel.
