Canadian born and Chicago raised! Her love for athletics was handed down to her by her incredibly talented parents. She grew up playing sports year round and being raised in a city with one of the best sports cultures to date.

Elli’s husband and she relocated to San Diego going on 4 years ago and are enjoying raising their three kids there! She says, “It’s truly my passion just to make sure people have a great time while getting their body moving! I lead with my heart and never give up on those I’m invested in. My favorite part of any industry I’ve worked in is the connections I’ve made. I love being a constant in someone’s journey through health and I did that long before I became a certified instructor. I look forward to the ways I can continue to make an impact! I’m new to the industry but not the idea. I am SO excited to learn, grow and be a part of the Studio SWEAT team!”

Training Philosophy

Have fun. Honestly! I like to smile when I sweat. We spend so much time being tense or stressed, when I come to the gym to teach I want it to be the best part of your day! Your family away from your family. I like to be silly and keep it light so as you truly feel the burn and the pain of a good workout you also feel the fun of pushing yourself to incredible limits. It makes it light and it makes it fun. If I can push you 2 minutes longer or 15 reps more without you knowing it, I’m doing my job right. Plus, throwing in a little dance move never hurt nobody!

Training Style

BUSY. I like a lot of compound movements, intervals and rotating stations.  If I can change it up and keep my team engaged then we are all having fun.
