MY story

Elis Bradshaw

Every day we are presented with nearly endless opportunities to feel bad about our bodies, and very few chances to embrace them. I believe that the time you spend working out should be gift that you give yourself, not punishment for perceived slights. I will help you create a fitness practice that celebrates your abilities and works for your body rather than trying to fit you into an arbitrary mold.

During the first twenty years of my life, I hardly moved my body at all, but once I started I never wanted to stop. The process of becoming an athlete has so profoundly impacted my relationship with myself and with the world that I feel called to help others expand their capabilities and physical horizons. I understand the unique challenges that people face in starting and sticking with a fitness practice as adults because I’ve been there myself. I would love the opportunity to help you develop a relationship with fitness that works for who and where you are. 

What I Offer

My training style is accessible to clients of all levels, from those just beginning their fitness journeys to competitive athletes. My fitness philosophy is HAES-aligned and trauma-informed, and I treat training sessions as a collaborative process; I want you to play an active role in shaping your fitness journey. I am certified as a Personal Trainer and Women’s Fitness Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and I hold a Pn1 Nutrition Coaching certificate through Precision Nutrition. I also hold certificates as a Muay Thai Fitness Instructor (NESTA) and a Fascia Specialist (Rollga).

My practice is included in Superfit Hero’s Body Positive Fitness Finder and Trauma Informed Personal Training’s Movement@Home database.

I offer both remote and in-person one-on-one, partner, and small group training sessions. Remote sessions occur on Hangouts, Skype, and similar video calling services. Remote workouts will incorporate whatever equipment you have available to you at your location (including no equipment, if that’s what you have!).

In-person sessions take place at Los Campeones Gym at 2746 Blaisdell Avenue in Minneapolis and utilize the wide range of equipment available at the facility. Depending on the location and time, I am sometimes able to accommodate training at your home or at an outdoor location of your choosing. (Please note that in-person training is currently limited due to COVID-19 public safety recommendations.)

There is no magic bullet. In order to create change, we must invest both time and effort. Because your success is my success, I choose to reward clients who dedicate their time to the process by offering discounted rates to clients who commit to training for longer periods of time. I offer a sliding scale for people with limited incomes. Please contact me directly to discuss these discounts.

Invest in yourself.

2020 Training Rates: Hour-long session base rate is $70/session
