Elena is an NASM Certified personal trainer with a passion for health and fitness. She developed an initial interest in the industry at a young age after watching family members struggle to maintain a healthy weight and body image.
After having her daughter and losing a significant amount of weight herself, Elena decided to transition from her career in communications to personal training. She recently received her certification from NASM and joined the Crystal’s Fit Team. She is currently enrolled in the health coaching certification program with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), with a goal of adding health coaching to her areas of expertise in the very near future.
Elena believes that having a focus on fitness and health can be life changing – and she hopes to inspire and motivate others to experience that as she has. She looks forward to helping you reach your goals, whatever they may be!
