Hey There!


Movement Shouldn't Be Punishment!
Led by group fitness instructor, Angelina Shimkus, Embia Fit began with Angelina's desire to do everything she can to change the narrative of how women see their bodies for her daughters, Aria & Ember.  As these two are a driving motivation in Angelina's goals and work, it makes sense to name our business after them; Embia Fit was born!

However...Let's back it up, because before Aria & Ember were actu
ally born, Angelina started down her fitness instructor path in 2011. Beginning her fitness career with a certification in PiYo, and then growing her certifications to include Turbo Kick, Personal Training, SOULfusion, and Cycling, as well as gaining training and teaching Pilates and Barre classes, Angelina is grateful for all of her movement opportunities and experiences because of the people and lessons it has taught her along the way. 

But these formats are just the modes to reaching Embia Fit's true mission:
To help others find body appreciation and respect through movement.
We work to set ourselves free from diet culture and own our movement, rather than working out because we're made to feel like we have to.

I am so grateful for your support and can't wait to see you for a virtual class.
