Client Spotlight: Emilie Potvin
We caught up with Emilie, who works with governments across Asia to think about how technology affects the future of transport. It’s not a coincidence that she’s one of the first clients who have used technology to advance her own journey in fitness!
How has the Circuit Breaker affected your fitness goals?
I move a lot on a daily basis (whether it’s running after my two kids or going from meetings to long airport walks, etc) and knowing that I would be confined to my apartment for an unlimited amount of time had me panicked at first.
What made you decide to get on board virtual PT/remote coaching?
My sessions with Alex and Bron keep me sane, and I knew that I would need to continue to do something good for me during the CB. Endless meetings with my teams across time zones can take a toll. It’s important to do something that keeps you sharp and alert! Training does that for me.
Is this your first time doing this sort of virtual PT/remote coaching?
Yes, and it’s actually been a lot better than I had imagined. I was afraid I would not feel challenged as much as in the gym but it’s not the case at all. I leave my sessions really satisfied, knowing I worked really hard.
What were you hoping to achieve with virtual PT/remote coaching?
I wanted to ensure I continued to make progress in my original goals and it has been great!
What have you gained from your virtual PT/remote coaching experience with Level? And are you doing anything different / moving differently as a result of your training?
I have realized how important it is to move, even in a limited space. The benefits on my body (and my mind!) are very valuable in these stressful times.
Would you recommend Virtual PT/remote coaching to a friend/family, and why?
Totally. Virtual coaching has allowing me to stay active, continue with my fitness goals and allows me to feel like I am doing something for myself in a period where it’s difficult to carve individual time out of work and the kids. My 10 year old has joined the kids classes and my 3 year old pretends to follow in the back. It’s a great environment for the family to stay active.
Bron and Alex are really good listeners and have come up with a great program for me. My arms have never looked as good.
Emilie is one of many who are training remotely with a coach, working on the little things so that the big things take care of themselves. To experience that for yourself, drop us a message at email@example.com

We caught up with Daniel, who normally spends his time in Coach Wu’s barbell class. With the circuit breaker in place, he’s now moved to train remotely with Alex, who is working with Daniel to maintain strength and muscle over the course of the month.
We caught up with Prem, who fell in love with us at first sight (her words, not ours). When she’s not running a Spartan Race (Prem ran 3 in 2019!), she works as a Dentist. We asked her about her training, and how it’s evolved across her time at Level.
We asked our female clients and trainers: What would you say to a woman who’s afraid to lift heavy? Here’s what they had to say.
