There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to adequately describe this woman. The passion she has is undeniable. She will go to the end of the earth and back for someone she cares for. I can confidently say, there isn’t a single person she has ever coached that she wouldn't give her absolute all for. I can confidently say this because I have witnessed this firsthand. Coach King helped me with my diet to better the health issue. She spent countless hours of overtime helping with my shoulder and knee rehab. She took the time to design specific workout plans that were aligned with the rest of the team but were specific to my injuries. She took the extra time and dedication to do this so I would not undergo further injury in the weight room. She is also known for being a strong, solid, true listening ear to her players and clients. What is so great about her listening ear is that she is so genuine but there was no beating around the bush. She is straight forward, genuine and so very down to earth. She helped pull me through the darkest time in my life. Without her there is in no way I would have been the player, student, or person I was while at Emmanuel College. I also can agree to this because over the past eight years I have come to the realization that she would do this for anyone because that is who she is as a person. She takes great passion in helping others and giving the necessary means to be successful. Coaching is what she does, but that doesn’t even compare to the description of who she is. I can genuinely say she is one of the main reasons I am the person I am today. I will forever be in debt to her for the impact she has had on my life. ---Katie Archer
I am pleased to write on behalf of Coach Emily King. I had the honor of being coached by Coach King for three years as a member of the Emmanuel College Women’s Lacrosse program. I never could have imagined the impact she would have on my life in such a short amount of time. As I entered college I was a lost soul, in an unfamiliar setting and I did not have much confidence in myself. From day one Coach King saw a potential in me I did not see in myself. Coach King knew mentally and emotionally I was a work in progress. When many Coaches would have given up on me, she was patient and never once turned her back on me. Each and everyday she pushed me to my limits, even when I wanted to quit. She pushed me day in and day out because she saw the potential and belief in me when I did not see it in myself. Emotionally and mentally she helped build me up each day I stepped onto her gym. She did not care only about how I was performing in the gym, but how I was doing outside of it. She genuinely checked in on me to make sure I was doing good mentally and emotionally outside of lacrosse. She knew I was someone who kept things bottled up and did not speak of my emotions much. She knew exactly when she needed to pull me aside to clear my head and get me back on track. Emotionally, Coach King was someone that I could always rely on to help me get out of any funk I was in. Mentally, from the ground up she helped build up a confidence that still glows on me today. During the two years I had the privilege of being coached by Coach King, she took a lost 18 year old kid and turned her into a confident young adult ready to take on the world head of her. She helped build me up emotionally and mentally, and I can confidently say I would not be the person I am today without her. Coach King is someone I can always reach out too and she will always be there. She is someone I am forever grateful for coming into my life.---Emma Pow
Emily King has been my personal trainer since January, 2020. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. There is no doubt in my mind about her qualifications. She is both teacher and trainer and has taught me the skills necessary to promote physical growth and strength as well as how to avoid injury. I recommend her often to those who need basic assistance, or furtherance, in their quest for better physical conditioning. I can’t imagine not having her as my personal trainer. ---Tracy Detter
Coach King is an amazing trainer. She pushes you mentally and physically to your be at your best. She has a lot of knowledge about the body and centers workouts around strengthening the correct muscle groups.--Samantha M.
