About Elise 

Hello, and welcome to my Website!  I look forward to working with you as your Trainer and/or Movement instructor!  Together we can work towards your fitness and well-being goals!


I have been in the Fitness Industry for 30 years and have helped numerous people look and feel their best! I realized early on that I was happiest when moving and dancing; as it helped me tone down anxiety and relieve depression.  Finding and experiencing the right movement is my potion for feeling good, and this is what I love sharing with others!


I feel that we are complex beings and as such we need individualized and holistic solutions.  This is why I have found it important to be trained in various areas relating to the human body as well as mindfulness.


Alignment is paramount for optimal health!  Most of us have misalignments which can create a myriad of issues in the body. My M.S. specialization in Corrective Exercises trained me to find and correct the dysfunctions in people's bodies to help them achieve their best possible alignment. This is a very important first step, before adding more difficult exercises.


My training in Movement Analysis helps me understand the qualities of movements that clients are missing and need to have added to their routines to balance their movement repertoire and improve well-being.


Being trained in energy work, healing and meditation, assists me in helping individuals incorporate changes from an energetic or spiritual level.  Having alignment at a deeper level can help changes take a hold.  


​The training that I have acquired in coaching has helped me understand how to best support someone in their journey of change.


I look forward to talking and discussing how we can work together!
