About Elwood

Fitness is more than a thing to do, its a lifestyle. After a sports career ending injury, I discovered my passion for holistic approaches to health and fitness. Let me help you transform your life and become a stronger, healthier, happier you.

My favorite client story

I love training couples for weddings. The most rewarding experience I had was a bride that had no experience with exercising in a gym setting. She transformed from a shy timid gym goer to am extremely confident exerciser. Not only did she gain confidence, she lost 6% bodyfat in about 4 and a half months and looked amazing in her wedding photos.

My favorite exercise

Pull-ups, when done correctly, is a great compound movement that builds a strong core and back.

My favorite quote

"Don't train harder, train smarter"

My training philosophy

The training that takes part in the gym is only part of the journey, health is forged in the kitchen and fostered by a healthy mind and spirit.

I was told about Elwood through a friend and I am so glad I did! He told me to check out his social media to get a feel for what he does. Motivated by their posts that documented client’s journeys (and the adorable dog), I decided to do a bit more research and found his website, and eventually had him join me on my own journey. Offering a comprehensive plan to fitness, Elwood was the right choice for me. They are dedicated to helping me achieve my goals of feeling more confident in who I am (rather than just lowering the numbers on the scale). Developing customized training schedules, nutritional plans, and providing the overall support (something I need a lot of), I am on the way to becoming a better me and I have no one else to thank.
