{Women Who Move Buffalo} Em Jay Fit



Today’s Woman who moves Buffalo is one of the toughest ladies I am lucky to know, Em Jay Fit. Em Jay (also know as Morgan McNerney) is a personal trainer who specializes in extreme weight loss. You may know Em Jay from the ever so popular BikeorBar where she teaches the popular CrosSpin.

Em Jay started her business because she herself was overweight as a teen. For her 15th birthday she asked her parents for a gym membership and a personal trainer and with her trainers help she was able to shed 90 lbs. Its then that she realized she wanted to show others that they could lose the weight to and turn their lives around.

” I love the hometown feel of Buffalo. All the Mom n’ Pop stores and restaurants. I lived in Phoenix for a bit, which was great, but every single store and restaurant was a chain. Nothing like the feeling of a home cooked meal, even when you’re out to eat.”

-Em Jay

Em Jay is amazing! Every time I take a class she teaches I know I’m going to 1. be sore the next day, 2. get an amazing workout while cursing and maybe crying (no not really, just kidding) 3. learn new exercises that I can take with me to continue to do on my own time 4. SWEAT a lot and 5. Do Burpees. 🙂

Em Jay specializes in personal and group training so if you want to make a change in your life you can contact her through a variety of ways. You won’t be sorry you did!

Lets get ready to Run


Nothing is better than taking a run to clear your head and take in some fresh air. This past weekend instead of going to a park or the gym, I went back to my high school’s track, man how time flies. While I haven’t moved away its still been years since I’ve been on the school grounds. It was nice to see improvements that have been made and to think about the memories of when I was younger.

I’d love to know, where are some of your favorite places to run in Western New York?


Oh and good luck to all those participating in the Corporate Challenge today!

Half Marathon Here I come

Town Park Run Jan. 2013 One of my goals that I made for 2013 was accomplishing a half marathon (13.1 miles) at the end of May. While I’ve been training for this for a month now, the last time I ran a race was 10 years ago back in high school track. Just the thought alone of completing 13 miles seems impossible after such a long time, but I’m determined to complete it. With temperatures being mild lately, I decided to take my workout outside to get my body used to the different weather conditions that take place in WNY. Buffalo has some great running paths, one of my favorites is Delaware Park. The streets of Elmwood Village, Clarence Bike Path, and Stiglmeier Park have some great trails to name a few. If you want to stick to the inside, UB North’s Campus has a nice indoor track inside their Alumni Arena, so does ECC’s Burt Flickinger Center and Buffalo State College. While this may physically be one of the hardest things I have done to date, I find a certain excitement and determination through the whole process. It makes it a little easier knowing I’m doing this with one of my best friends too.
