EMILY GOODING

Certified Personal Trainer

Most people know me as a personal trainer, but my career began as a Registered Nurse. I have worked in a variety of settings including Trauma, Integrative Cancer, and Long-Term Care. My experience as a nurse exposed me to our current reactive health-care system. It felt like I was constantly putting out fires rather than preventing them from starting in the first place. I owe it to this experience for helping me recognize my passion for preventative health care. 


While I was working at the hospital, I began to develop pain in my feet, which drove me to learn about how I could fix them. After attending a seminar through The Foot Collective, I started to implement small changes into my life that ultimately eliminated my foot pain. I left my job at the hospital to search for answers. If I could treat my own pain, I felt that I could make a difference in helping others with their chronic pain and work to help people prevent illness and injury. 

I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing and I am currently still working as a Registered Nurse at the Centre for Health Innovation in Ottawa. 


Some of my certifications include: 

  • Sports Performance Institute Level 2 Trainer 

  • Certified Foot Nerd with The Foot Collective 

  • Animal Flow Level 1 Instructor

  • The Ottawa School of Thai Massage Certificate 

  • Functional Movement Techniques Cupping Certification 


I continue to find opportunities to challenge myself and learn with an open mind. I’m excited to share my experience with my community and be a leader in preventative health.
