Elizabeth Brooks

Bethesda, MD

I've been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 30 years. I specialize in small and large group training with a focus on core strength and functional movement training. I'm a speaker and love working with adults and senior populations. My philosophy is that "Fitness Begins with Correct Thinking." I train clients to think correctly about their bodies in order to create transformation.

    I have been training with Elizabeth for years - her classes are awesome - challenging, but tailored to your needs. Elizabeth is also a great teacher - she cares about your experience as a student and it shows! She will ensure that you know what you're doing, that your form is correct (so you don't get hurt!), and that you are maximizing the benefits of all your hard work. She's also enthusiastic and fun!
