Elena wants to live in a world where people measure their happiness by how they feel, and not how they look. Where numbers are not important, and scales do not exist. Elena suffered from Eating disorders for 19 years, and her message is simple. Look within for beauty and confidence and it will exude happiness and positivity on the outside.

As a Fitness Instructor and motivational self image speaker, she’s worked for the Canadian Fitness Professional Organization and various Fitness clubs over the past 10 years, inspiring women of all ages to be themselves, and overcome their fears and insecurities. Elena has a huge following in her Group Fitness classes, with line up’s just to reserve a spot. Elena was also highlighted in canfitpro’s Member Spotlight March 2012 issue.

When she’s not teaching her Circuit or Cycle classes, she’s busy being a mom, driving her daughter to hockey, gymnastics, and soccer. You can also find her whipping up mouth watering shortbread toffee meltaways (everything in moderation), or kicking up her heels Latin dancing. Being a single mom of two kids, she has overcome many challenges, stays humble and wants all women to empower themselves to open all doors for themselves, no matter how stuck they may feel. The doors will eventually open and opportunities will be waiting.
