    Elle is AMAZING! I have been working with her for a while now and by far she is the best trainer. She is so passionate and committed to her clients. During pandemic she started her online fitness program and was very engaged with the members via IG and email. She really is the best trainer and loves what she does.

    Elle is absolutely amazing! She has this way with her clients that keeps them motivated and never wanting to give up. Since the moment I took her first class back in 2015, I was addicted. I never thought I can be sore the way I was and see the results the way I did and still do. She is so passionate about her clients and truly cares. I'm happy to be a a part of Elle's army.

    Elle's the greatest! I started my fitness journey taking her classes at the gym years ago. Then when the pandemic hit I followed her to her virtual classes, online fitness program, and social media fitness posts. In all of her classes, regardless of format, I know I'm in a safe environment where I can workout my hardest but not hurt myself. This is because Elle always make sure we know the "whys" and the "hows" of each move we do, what muscle we're aiming to target, and how things should feel. She constantly checks in with us, our form, and how we're doing/feeling in the body. I really only started seeing changes in my body and endurance with fitness when I committed to having Elle be the leader of my journey, and I'm so thankful to her for the guidance. Signing up for her fitness program Fitlocker was the stability I needed during these "Covid times", it kept me active while working from home, and also provided mental/emotional support. There's no other trainer that cares like her! She cares and loves what she does, so much so that she ends up passing that love onto her students. I'm loving fitness now and feeling more confident in the mobility of my body because of Elle!

    “Best in Class.” That is the simplest way to describe Elle and everything she encompasses. From her elite coaching and science-based training programs to her philosophy on life and the care she has for her clients - no other trainer has ever elevated my fitness quite like her.

    We’re going on 6 years together and I’m never giving her a divorce!

    I've been exercising with Elle for 5 years! I first attended one of her classes at Crunch Fitness and have stayed with her ever since. Even when the pandemic hit, and no one could go to the gym, Elle created a Fitlocker channel and program that all of her "Elle's Army" members could follow. This group began as a bunch of strangers who loosely knew each other from one of her gyms, but has become a unified group of buddies (and in some cases, actual friends) who chat regularly. But everyone is there because we all want the challenge that Elle's workouts give us. Elle is not an easy instructor. After all this time, I still am pushed out of my comfort zone with the variety of her workout program. Further, Elle regularly touches base with us about our goals and encourages us to reach out to each other, subsequently providing us with a community of accountability and support. With all that's taken place over the past year, and through all the challenges of a global pandemic, I personally feel grateful to have had Elle and my fellow Elle's Army members to rely on.
