About Em Donkers
Em is an influencer and personal trainer whose main focus is helping members of the queer community to build the body that they’ve always wanted.
Em has a degree in nutrition and has been working as a personal trainer for roughly five years, so they are more than qualified to help their clients.
They’ve also been working out for six or seven days a week for the past 12 years, posting their progress to followers on their Instagram account since 2017, helping to bring positive energy and queer representation to conventional fitness spaces.
Training and nutrition
Em currently trains six or seven times a week, balancing their own training with client sessions and YouTube video production. It’s a hectic schedule, but Em still finds the time to get in a good workout more often than not.
- Full body
And when they come to the end of their split, they simply repeat.
To stay fresh with such a full-on workout schedule, it’s important that Em keeps their body stocked up with supplements that support their training.

Em’s Favourite Product
Em began their fitness journey at the age of 14. They have been into fitness ever since, and they are now in their mid-20s. Em shares their passion for fitness with over 70,000 Instagram followers.
“I've been working out since I was about 14 years old pretty consistently. I got into it from sports, I played a lot of sports growing up and I really wanted to get better at them, so I started working out more at home, and then I started really liking it. I was at home doing all the push-ups, the crunches and just trying to build up some strength. I liked the way that I felt and looked and how I was excelling in some of these sports, and it just went from there. I also grew up in a very active household — my parents were very active, and so were my brothers. They always led me with a very active lifestyle, and I wanted to live up to that too.”

Go-to cheat meal
Em works out 6-7 times a week, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the finer things in life. Like pizza — their go-to cheat meal.
