Now a days, she teamed up with former NFL star Randy Moss, together they host a free boot camp at STAX gym and get anywhere from 300 to 500 people a night.


Emily Breeze is married woman, she and investment consultant, Montell Watson have been married for over a year.


The couple is expecting their first child together, boy! The stories this baby will hear about his pregnant mama! But Emily Breeze tells all the haters out there:

“People who don’t know me write the craziest things [on my Instagram],” says Breeze. “I am completely baffled that people would think I’d do anything that would harm my baby … but I won’t allow someone’s uneducated opinion to deter my doctor-approved fitness regime during my pregnancy.”

Emily Breeze has been an athlete her whole life and has never had to worry about weight gain, she reveals on an interview she is hoping to bounce back form her post baby weight.

She and her hubby will welcome a baby boy on April 29.
