Emma Barnes

She/Her/Hers

Emma has been teaching Body Combat and Six-Pack Abs at the Cal Poly Recreation Center since 2018. She is a fourth-year animal science major at Cal Poly and is planning to graduate spring of 2020. She enjoys staying active and learning about nutrition and anatomy/physiology. Her passion for fitness extends outside the Recreation Center where she participates in activities such as hiking the peaks of San Luis Obispo and competing in Spartan races. Getting to know participants and helping them achieve their goals are Emma’s favorite parts of teaching group fitness.

“Group fitness always gets me through a tough week of school. As soon as I finish teaching a class, I am immediately looking forward to teaching again the following week. I love the people, the energy, and how the workout makes me feel.”
