Emily Sopo

Emily Sopo began her career in the fitness industry on a whim when she saw a flyer for a group fitness certification at her local gym and decided to give it a try. What started as a hobby quickly began Emily’s passion. In 2015, Emily graduated with a Master of Science in Kinesiology, Exercise Science, with a focus on exercise physiology and fitness from California State University, Long Beach. She is now the Assistant Director of the LifeFit Center @ The Beach, a health and fitness facility geared toward adults 49 years and older.

Emily was first introduced to MYZONE in 2013 when the LifeFit Center began using the system. She found that the feedback she received from her belt became such an integral part of her workouts that she even wrote her graduate thesis on aspects of the MYZONE system. She loves that MYZONE is valuable for individual feedback and for working with individual clients or with large groups.

Emily is a certified personal trainer through and a group fitness instructor. In addition to her day job, she has taught several undergraduate courses at California State University, Long Beach that focus on exercise physiology and fitness.
