Elissa loves to pick stuff up and put it back down… efficiently.
Always up for an adventure and pushing the limits, Elissa has chased thrills through skydiving, bungee jumping, black diamond hills in Whistler and not returning her mother’s phone calls.
She’s completed a Niagara Ultra, an Adventure Race in Nevada, two full Around the Bay races, and earned a three-time gold medal placing in her weight class.
After many years of directionless gym visits with little improvement in strength and physique, Elissa stumbled into a powerlifting gym. After much training, research, seminars and guidance from knowledgeable athletes, Elissa knew she found her passion.
Through her years of focused powerlifting, she has found balance with her body, mind and spirit through many modalities of fitness, from yoga, running, barre and HIIT.
Elissa sees it as her mission to show others their own power and strength through the barbell.
