Transformation with Before and After Photos

"It's been a little more than a year since I first met Elena. Initially she totally intimidated me. She's so strong and so confident. At the time, I wasn't in a great place. I had been an athlete most of my life, but between a busy career and kids, I had really failed to make time for myself. I was out of shape and at a loss for how to get back on track.

Initially we started off training twice a week and before I knew it, we started to see results. I was feeling better and my outlook on everything improved. Training with Elena was the only place in my life where all I had to do was show up and do what she told me to do. I trusted her to design and manage our training time together and I couldn't be happier with our progress. She's a mentor, a friend, a role model, and someone I cannot imagine not having in my life."

More Testimonials

"From the first conversation I had with Elena, I knew that she was the person who could help me achieve my goals and help me change my life for the better.

Elena is very attentive to what each client needs, what their limits are, and how far she can push them. That being said, she does push me and challenges me during every single workout! She constantly encourages me and motivates me to do better. I have been training with Elena for almost 3 months and I have come so far already! I can do things now that I never thought possible during my first week of training.

I am very impressed by Elena’s passion for being a trainer, her vast knowledge and her passion to connect with each of her clients. She truly wants each of her clients to be successful and make fitness a priority in their lives. 

Talking to friends who work out with other personal trainers, I was shocked to hear they have no communication outside of their training session. Not so with Elena! She will regularly check in with me during the day to see how I’m doing and is always available if I have any questions. 

I can’t say enough good things about having Elena train me. I feel like I have a new lease on life and I’m just getting started! Signing up with Elena has been one of the best decisions I’ve made."

"Isn’t that what you are here for? Results? If you want results, then work with Elena! She delivers 110% on EVERY promise…she does NOT sugar coat anything….if you want it, you gotta do the work. As I quickly learned, give her any lip and you will be instructed (for lack of a better term) to give her 10 more pushups! She is compassionate, empathetic and very knowledgeable along with knowing exactly what is going on at all times with her clients. Elena has now permeated almost every thought in my mind when it comes to nutrition and exercise!!  She has, as I already mentioned,  pushed me on all aspects of my personal training.  I now wear my absolutely sweat covered t- shirt as a badge of honor! I don’t put anything in my mouth without first thinking about it!

If you decide get involved with personal training at New Milford Fitness & Aquatics Club, strive to get on her schedule and be prepared..she will push you…she will get every ounce of energy out of you all with a smile. YOU WILL BE BETTER FOR IT AND YOU WILL SEE RESULTS!!

One last comment, I slipped on the ice in a parking lot Christmas Day evening. I was injured, and she took the time over several sessions to keep me active, working out the injury and keeping me on track...the compassion, empathy, sympathy are all part of the package.

Isn’t that what you want…I DO…I want results! And I am achieving everything that I wanted, let alone expected! I do know that I am in a much better place than where I started yet I have so much more to go…now 70 days along this journey, I am down 10 lbs and 28inches! And the results that I speak of are over Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

She is highly in demand so if you get the opportunity to get on her schedule, grab it….Elena is a rock star and she will absolutely alter your life for the positive!!

Thank you so much Elena!!"

"Elena has been my trainer since Sept 2017. Ever since my initial meeting with her, she has been on my side. Elena listened to my goals, (goals are important) but more importantly she listened to what my needs were, even if I didn’t say them. She saw when I was nervous, stressed, overwhelmed or even just doubting my ability to complete an exercise. She never let me off the hook, which I need, but at the same time is completely encouraging. She makes you believe in yourself.

Accountability is an enormous weak spot for me, and I’m probably the biggest self sabotaging person. It’s the reason I need a trainer in the first place. I would reward myself with bad food after losing a couple of pounds. Elena works with you to not only change your body on the outside, but she gives you the tools and a lot of self confidence to help change the inside as well. Things I never thought I could do, nor would I have ever tried on my own, I am now doing. She gives you the confidence to do things out of your comfort zone and face your fears and insecurities. In return, your mind starts to have these feelings that are powerful and you really can do anything you set your mind too.

Not only has working with Elena given me a body I feel more comfortable in, she has given me something even greater. I now have confidence in myself and my abilities. My entire family has benefited from it.
