My interest in the human body began as a rowing athlete and coach; I found the physiology and biomechanics of injury and performance interesting so decided to study it further. I know exercise is beneficial for everyone, but have found a real passion working in the Women’s Health field. It’s fulfilling to use exercise to help women manage clinical conditions, but I love helping women go further, take time for themselves, and use exercise to improve their mood, manage stress and just enjoy living a healthy lifestyle!
Elisha completed a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science majoring in Clinical Exercise Physiology, class of 2014. Since joining the Bodytrack team, Elisha has enjoyed working a range of clients, but now focuses her talent as a Women’s Health EP. Elisha’s skill in the Women’s Health field has led her to become the local Coordinator for the Women’s Health Collective and present on Exercise and Endometrosis for QENDO. Elisha strongly believes that by furthering her education and keeping up to date with the current scientific evidence she will be equipped to provide a high level of quality care and exercise prescription for rehabilitation. Outside of work, you can find Elisha running along the river, sampling wine and cheese, or in an Italian restaurant with her husband, Andrew.
