Early life and background of Emily Skye

Emily grew up with her mother and sister because their father left when she was just 2 years old. She wasn't really passionate about anything specific when she was younger, always looking for some purpose. When she was a beautiful teenager, she signed a contract with a modelling agency and started her career as a model. She did good and appeared on the covers of popular Australian magazines. However, she still felt insecure in her own body.

Although she was a successful model with an athletic figure, she was unhealthy and unhappy at the same time. She focused on looking perfect every day but forgot about her mental health. Living with unhealthy routines showed in her mental health, as she started to feel anxious and depressed. She wanted to change something, so she quit modelling and decided to go to the gym. Emily was focused on a healthy diet and exercising because she read that it may help her with her mental health.

Within the first few months, Emily focused strictly on cardio because she was afraid of looking too masculine. She got into modelling again, but it was fitness modelling this time. She competed in CoverGirl's Australian Oxygen Magazine competition and made it to the first 5. Although she focused on the competition, she looked over the magazine and saw there all the benefits of physical training. After that, she focused on strengthening her body and became a personal trainer. Not only her body but also her mental health noticeably improved.

Emily has been dating her boyfriend, Declan Redmont, since 2013. They have been together ever since, although they never got married.

They had her first daughter, Mia, in 2017. Emily expects Mia to enjoy a healthy lifestyle when she's older because she sees her parents exercise a lot and eat healthily. Their second child is a son, Izaac, who was born in 2020.

Emily joined YouTube in 2006 because she wanted to inspire people to start living healthily. She posted a few workout videos alongside some vlogs. She didn't have many subscribers but enjoyed making content. She joined Instagram in 2013, and that's when she started to become famous. She used to post short workout videos on her Instagram page and share them on Facebook at the same time. One of her videos went viral on Facebook, collecting over 60 million views. People started to recognize her and follow her on Instagram.

As her audience grew, Emily decided to share her story, including the bad parts. She supports people in maintaining a healthy lifestyle because she knows it has a huge impact on one's mental health. Even though she focuses on daily workouts, she likes to educate people on a healthy diet. Her advice on eating healthy is to get rid of all the junk food at home and buy only fresh, healthy ingredients. It is much easier to eat healthy when you prepare your own meals in advance. Nowadays, Emily continues helping other people with their lifestyle but doesn't fear showing her natural body. She posted a few pictures of her postpartum belly because it is completely normal and nothing to be ashamed of.
