Meet Emilie Chiller
Meet Emilie Chiller, a mother, naturopath and fitness instructor from Romsey, Victoria. In just a few short days, Em will be taking on Bravehearts 777 Marathon, which will see her tackle 7 consecutive marathons, across 7 states in 7 days, finishing off with the Gold Coast Marathon on July 7th. Being a mother to 3 beautiful children, Bravehearts is a cause close to Em’s heart and she is committed to doing everything she can to raise funds and awareness to make Australia the safest place for our children.
To prepare herself physically and mentally for this ultimate test of endurance, Em has competed in many marathons and races over the last 6 months. Her weekly training regime includes running at least 4 times per week, strength training and plyometrics. Em believes strength is the foundation and having a strong body not only helps make a good runner but also builds mental toughness, “Being mentally strong is a big part of completing 1 marathon let alone 7!”
Em originally came across PainPod through her husbands use for Carpal Tunnel pain and came to love it herself. She enjoys using the PainPod after a big day of training, especially to loosen up tight hips and knees, “30mins each side and wow, it’s like magic!!! I can actually feel the blood flowing to the area. Absolutely love it.”
When asked what Em would use as motivation during each 42 kilometer run, she spoke about running with a purpose. She isn’t fussed on winning or breaking personal records, she just wants to do as much as she can to support and fundraise for this incredibly important issue. Remarkably, Em has nearly reached her goal of $10,000 to support Bravehearts in protecting our Aussie kids against sexual assault. To help get her over the finish line, PainPod will be contributing $20 from every PainPod 3 device sold at the ASICS Sport & Leisure Expo - Gold Coast Marathon during July 4th - 6th.

From everyone at PainPod, we wish you the best of luck Em and we will be following you every step of the way!
