Ellen is a graduate of the University of Winnipeg where she received her Bachelors of Kinesiology with a focus on Health Promotion. She then continued her exercise education with the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology and received her Certified Personal Trainer (CSEP-CPT) status.

Coach Ellen is an all-around type of coach who believes you CAN have it all. She has an adventurous streak, a bit of a spitfire, honesty, and a gutsy force. Coach Ellen promises to meet you where you’re at, while you should also expect to be pushed (or gently nudged if that’s more your style) until you’re exactly where you want to be.
FUNctional workouts and mindset check-ins are her jam and with her achievement style of work, her energy will help fuel your growth.
In both her professional and personal life, Ellen commits and pours her heart into anything she sets her mind to. Personally, a compassionate and supportive friend who’s always there and, when necessary, will give you the kick in the pants you need to make decisions for yourself. That same empathy translates into her professional decorum when handling tough and delicate situations; being a coach that you don’t want to let down, but also being approachable to help you in any situation. Coach Ellen is responsible, driven, reliable and someone that anyone can depend on unconditionally – no matter how many times you might feel like you’ve made the wrong call.
You want a friend? You got it. You want accountability? You got it. You want to be happier? You got it. You want to shift your mindset? You got it. You want life altering changes and results? You got it!
