You are so upbeat and say it like it is. I like that you push me in every aspect of my workout. For the first time in my life I enjoy
working out and knowing that I am a better and stronger person because of your kindness, strength and knowledge.
You truly care about the people you are working with. You want the best for your clients and it shows in every aspect of your training.
You are not a cookie cutter trainer. You put a lot of time and thought into each individual’s needs. You…

Interesting yin and yang–sweet and steel; extremely knowledgeable on good health in many areas beyond simple fitness; but strongest word that jumps to mind is “personal”. It applies to the way you assess and handle each client, the space we are in, the individual and small group formats, and the advice we get on whole health as it applies to us individually. It is comfortable and approachable for any fitness level but you push when needed and I know each client believes you care about their he…

I get a great work out in 30 minutes. I would not work out to this level on my own. No work out seems redundant, you always mix it up.
You write books! You share many pieces of information via FB & email and invite us into your home for many opportunities, personal growth and friendship. You stay in touch though social media. And most importantly, you recognize my moods/personal hurdles weekly and have gotten to know me well enough to help me overcome and work through some difficul…
What I love about working with Elyssa is that she is knowledgable. She offers clear guidance, makes scheduling easy, and her creative sequencing keeps challenging my body and mind; and I really like HER! She doesn’t try to emulate a drill sergeant, and combines her knowledge of strength and yoga, to fit her clients’ agenda. I know that she’s always out there taking more classes and gaining more knowledge to assist me.
You make it fun! You keep me challenged, and keep me on track.
I like how I will get a text from you out of the blue asking how I’m doing with my diet or an at home workout. I also like when you give me guidance on what I can do at home.
