A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Elisa started playing volleyball in Italy at the age of 6, and pursued the sport professionally for 19 years, competing in regional and national competitions.
With a degree in Sport Science from Magna Graecia University, she began her career as a Kinesiologist and Personal Trainer more than 9 years ago. She worked for MIUR (Italian Higher Education) as a physical education teacher and lead her own successful Pilates and postural exercise classes.
Since moving to the UK in 2013 she has been working as a senior Personal Trainer, Pilates instructor and corrective exercises specialist, training a wide range of clients in the most exclusive gyms across London including the highest ranking Luxury Hotels and Corporate Gyms, ESPA Fitness, FitSPace and BodySPace. Elisa's love for Health, Fitness and Technology brought her into the world of EMS training - MIHA Bodytec becoming a EMS Head Trainer at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
She has maintained her love of volleyball through coaching a volleyball team in Wimbledon and is now providing one to one volleyball technique support and sport specific training.
In 2020 Elisa created EG Pilates. She describes it as an innovative dynamic fitness method that uses traditional Pilates as a tool to work towards clients' goals including rehabilitation, corrective movements and body awareness.
She fiercely believes in self-betterment and has never stopped learning, keenly diving into new areas of interest such us women's health, PCOS and pre and post-natal among others. Becoming a mother herself has helped emphasise the importance of this.
Following the footsteps of doctor Tara Swart - Neuroscientist & author of "The Source" - she has started her mindful journey into the world of neuroplasticity and resilience, bringing these two elements into what has been called "Mindful Fitness" (The Sun - April 2017).
Elisa specialises in Dynamix Reformer Pilates by David Higgins - author of "The Hollywood Body Plan" - and trains a range of VIP clients, celebrities and professional athletes.
