About Qualifications Specialisms Location Reviews
I am an enthusiastic, passionate personal trainer that loves helping other people of all ages and backgrounds to discover that living an active and healthy life, and enjoying it, is actually possible!

After many years training and not getting the expected results I decided to start working with a personal trainer. This decision was a life changer. Training with a professional that knew what he was doing and get results introduced me to a completely new world. My new way of living made me feel so fulfilled, that I realized my new LIFE “moto” was to help others to feel the same way and that’s why I became a personal trainer.

I was diagnosed with two lower back hernias when I was just 17. This made me understand how a health condition can limit your life and this is the main reason why I decided to specialize as a Posture and Corrective Exercise Personal Trainer.

I understand that change is not easy and even more difficult it is to find your own “balance” between your nutrition and fitness. We are all different and we all have different lifestyles and triggers, so I always adapt to each individual, I do my best to empathize with my clients, being flexible, accountable, supportive and always leading by example.

I have successfully helped many clients from 14 up to 82 years of age to become more active, improve their wellbeing and push their limits, setting realistic and approachable personalised goals.

I have worked as a personal trainer in Hampstead, Cricklewood and Bromley areas and also delivered remote personal training and fitness programs in Spain, Argentina, Iceland, Italy and Germany. I speak English and Spanish, so I am more than happy to train my clients in any of those two languages.

I am excited to start a new chapter in Gunnersbury Sports Centre and continue to contribute to the wellbeing of the community.

Let me help you to push your limits and find your own path to wellbeing!

All I can say is thank you. Thank you for showing me that it is not all bad in the gym and healthy choices can also be exciting. I have been to many trainers over the years who push me into things I do not feel comfortable with or change my life to something that is unachievable. Elisa is approachable, easy to have a conversation with and always willing to listen and advise! She adapts her training styles and nutrition advice to support you in the best way possible! I highly recommend Elisa to anyone looking to find a good balance in life and to feel good about yourself! :)

It's a shame I wasn't able to train for a long time with Elisa, but in the short time we had I had a lot of learning. It's clear from the start that Elisa has a lot of knowledge and that she always has your best interests in mind. She values and promotes balance in both exercise and diet and will always adjust things to make sure you feel comfortable and meet your goals. I learned to correct a lot of mistakes in my form which I had never noticed before and others had not pointed out to me, and which led to me getting so much more out of my workouts. She pushed me to try new exercises and to familiarise myself with all the muscles in my body. Most importantly she always made me feel comfortable :) Thank you Elisa!

‘To see the gradual changes in my body has been unbelievable, not just the much needed weight loss (I lost 12 kgs I aprox. 6 months) but to see my shape changing for the better, to ‘discover’ muscles I had never seen before, to be able to wear clothes that had been kept just for emotional reasons as I thought they would never fit again... and the best of all ... the feeling ... less pain, more energy, more comfortable, that long lost sense of accomplishment ‘yes I can’ and, even not being the main objective, why not say it!? Oh to feel beautiful again. I can’t be more thankful because one thing I know for sure, I wouldn’t have done it without you, your knowledge, support and patience!’

Elisa has become my new best friend, therapist and personal trainer. She’s always supportive and most importantly she knows what she’s doing. I started with Elisa with no intentions of starting with a personal trainer however from one session I realised I didn’t want to go back to working out incorrectly. Don’t get me wrong, I get days when I don’t want to work out but all I do is turn up to my session and I leave the rest to her. She’s a great listener and knows how to get you to your goals. She’s definitely one of the best decisions I ever made. She’s professional, friendly and very well experienced. Guess what she actually gives me a very nice meal plan that I look forward to eat everyday. Simply I should have started sessions with Elisa way sooner 🏋️💪🏻🏋️💪🏻

Working with Elisa has been one of the best decisions I've ever made to improve my health, change my bad habits and implement new ones. She is patient and diligent, she not only creates an exercise program with you, she tailors it to you. Having someone that helps you to be accountable is crucial to hit your desired goals. Plus, we elaborate together a weekly or monthly realistic goal plan that I can accomplish and keeps me motivated to reach the next ones.

What I like the most is that she always gives advice and you realise from the get go that you are working with an experienced professional who has your best interests at heart. It’s been almost a year that we’ve worked together and I’ve completely changed my unhealthy eating habits and started living a more active life with noticeable results in my body. I’m completely sure this one of the best kind investments you can ever make: An investment for your health.

Excellent professional!
I would definitely recommend working with Elisa, she is approachable, reliable, positive and very flexible. I have been training for many years, but until I started to work with Elisa I didn’t realised how many things I’ve been doing wrong! I have learnt many things; I have even changed my mindset!
Thank you Elisa!

Elisa is the best!
I’m a regular swimmer and I wanted to try something new, so I decided to start working with Elisa as I didn’t have a clue of what to do at the gym. She was so patient and kind. Thanks to her, I discovered I actually enjoy going to the gym and feel strong.

I work many hours in front of a computer and move very little. After lockdown I put on weight and my knee issues got worse, so I decided to start working with a personal trainer. I met Elisa at my gym and started working with her. She adapted all the trainings to improve my posture and strengthen my knees. It was a life changer! I lost weight, felt lighter and more agile, I stopped suffering from a constant back ache and my knee pain has improved significantly. I give Elisa a 10!

Elisa is very supportive and a great professional
I was 75 when I started training with Elisa. I have been training with her for 2 years now. I have health issues that unfortunately don’t improve with age, so I am glad I haven’t stopped moving despite many times it is not easy to start. Elisa has helped me to improve my flexibility and mobility. I am glad to have Elisa’s support.

I can’t recommend her enough.
I started to work with Elisa around 4 years ago, when I was 62. I have always been very active, however, I was frustrated as I never got the results I expected. I decided to start online person-al training with Elisa and I couldn’t believe how quickly I started to notice results. Elisa pushes you and supports you to always go a step further. She doesn’t accept excuses! But at the same time she is flexible and empathetic. Her advice regarding nutrition, supplements, etc. has helped me to understand what my body needs and even to relieve joints pain. She has become more than my personal trainer, she has become a very good friend and I can’t recommend her enough.

I have never been known as the most active or healthy, however, Elisa has helped me to change my view about many things in life. Her balanced view about fitness, nutrition and many other aspects in life is contagious. She’s very passionate about improving people’s life and takes her job very seriously. Elisa will always have a special space in my heart!

Elisa has been the only personal trainer that has made me enjoy physical training, push my boundaries and change my mindset to learn healthier habits. She didn’t just help me with the training, she is incredibly inspirational and a life coach! She is personable, caring, and got very involved in my evolution so I could see results. Training with her was one of the best ideas I’ve had! Thanks Elisa for your amazing work and help.
