“I’ve been working with Elisa for 15 years and I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I would not be the person I am today without her. I was starting from zero when I met Elisa. Since then, I’ve lost weight and gained strength and all of this has helped contribute to my happy life. Elisa expertly targets workouts for the individual. She has the knowledge, expertise, and education to effectively do so. I am physically fit and get joy from activities that I now participate in for a healthy lifestyle. Thank you, Elisa for helping me to reach my potential!

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Elisa for many years. She constantly impresses me with the depth of her knowledge and expertise about all things fitness-related. She is more than a trainer. She is an overall health, motivation, and accountability coach. Her workouts are never cookie-cutter. Rather, she custom tailors her workouts to meet each person’s individual goals and physical condition. She also innately knows exactly what will motivate her clients at any given time. She has helped me achieve the best physical condition of my adult life. She is now helping me to rebuild my strength and confidence after dealing with a back injury for several years. I wouldn’t put that recovery in just anyone’s hand. Only Elisa’s. She’s truly amazing.”

“Elisa is a natural coach and trainer. We have worked together for more than 10 years and I would follow her anywhere. Through inspiration and motivation, she has helped me to better understand myself, my strengths and blindspots and how to ensure that I am healthy- both physically and mentally. Elisa has a wonderful patience that enables her to really listen to your body and what you are experiencing and then mobilize her incredible expertise and insights to guide your process accordingly. She is an incredible resource and guide whether you are looking for general health or specific results. ”

“I am pleased to recommend most heartily and without reservations Elisa Hein as a personal trainer. She has been my trainer for more than four years and helped me survive the pandemic and its lockdown with good physical and psychological health. She personally cares for each client and their goals; in my case, she has also visited my home workout area and seen my wife, who has memory issues - making cogent suggestions about each.

If you are fortunate enough to have her as your trainer, you will be rewarded many times over, as I have been.

“Ten years ago, my trainer said he was leaving. I had a lot of time to think about the qualities I wanted in a new trainer, and to observe the many trainers in the gym to see if one of them would be a good fit for me. I decided I wanted a professional who was interested in my safety as well as my progress, AND I wanted a person who was kind, patient, not loud or self-involved, and a sense of humor would be a plus. Elisa was my choice and she is all of those things and more.

She has helped me navigate many difficult things, most recently a fractured fibula from hiking. She helped me rehab my ankle and I'm walking normally again. Despite my age, she has helped me gain strength and flexibility, and her humor keeps me going. She has been available during Covid and we have been doing Zoom sessions.

I am not a person who has stuck with any exercise program for long. I either got bored or discouraged. With Elisa, I look forward to our sessions and I hope she will be part of my life forever. I am so grateful I found the perfect trainer for me. As my husband says, and I completely agree, Elisa is "the salt of the earth. Thank you Elisa!”

“Elisa Hein is a treasure. Let me count the ways.

As my personal trainer, for the last eight years she has kept me marching through this harsh world on a note of triumph, keeping me cheerful and giving no quarter to the devil.

She never stops thinking.

She never fails to pay attention-to me!

She is utterly reliable.

She is endlessly inventive, prescribing exercises that are wonderfully helpful.

Most remarkable, she possesses what King Lear recognized as authority. Lear was in his 80s; I am 90. We oldsters know a thing or two because we’ve seen a thing or two-

Elisa is not only a treasure,

She is a Wonder.”

“My training experience with Elisa feels deeply rooted in the mind-body connection. She is so skilled at physically leveling up your body while magically, it seems, infusing an incredibly supportive mindset into the workout experience. As a result of my pregnancy, I have consistently struggled with my pelvic floor and core muscle-system strength. Elisa identified this as a target goal for me and, in our work together. I now feel so much more connected to my core during my sessions…and in between them. I am very grateful to Elisa for her support, customized workouts, and frequent check-ins. She is the ultimate partner!”

“Elisa Hein changed my body over 4 years. I have scoliosis and am a 66-year-old woman. Elisa worked tirelessly with me, from the ground up, building a foundation of strength using little muscles, and the big ones too! She taught me how to move and gain strength safely, injury free! Elisa worked with me psychologically, got me to think about things differently, how to see and feel and then decide what additional activities I might want to do cardio wise in addition to my training. Not always sticking to a schedule, consider varying it (I am type A). My back, legs, arms, etc. got much stronger and I could lift more and more weight and had more endurance cardio-wise. Elisa built my infrastructure so I could do Advanced Pilates and harder strength training, like leg pressing 500 pounds. I feel confident that I now have a decent foundation in which to grow from. Great feeling at 66!!!”
