meet Emily

hi, I’m Emily Lola Tan

and if I had a motto, it’d be “living life with intention, one day at a time.” 🌟

My journey has been a rollercoaster of experiences, from coaching trainers as a fitness educator and taking the stage with Viva Circus to hosting a TV fitness show and spreading my health-coaching wings by integrating Functional Medicine with fitness at Limitless Health and Fitness in Hong Kong. But perhaps one of the most significant chapters in my life was my battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. It reshaped my perspective and ignited a passion for wholesome wellness that I now share with the world.

Now, I’m not just about fitness and pole dancing (though they have been my businesses and life), and I’m not just about health coaching (though I’m studying with Functional Medicine Coaching Academy), I’m about embracing the everyday magic in the mundane, finding joy in the simple moments, and taking 5-min dance breaks ✨ often.

Productivity, to me, isn’t a race to the finish line; it’s about creating space for yourself, whether that means binge-watching K-dramas or simply doing nothing without feeling guilty. 📺

I’ve learned that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to being fit, beating cancer or intentional living; but together, we can explore what feels right for you, let go of what doesn’t, and craft a life that excites you every morning.
