Elysa Monk Fitness
I have been a certified fitness specialist for over 23 years working as a group instructor and personal trainer. My passion is teaching fun crazy energetic classes that leave the participants wanting more. I am certified in kickboxing, BOSU, spinning, yoga level 1, Gymstick and Zumba. I offer specialty classes including Mom and Baby programs/ kids' programs (Mommy and me Bootcamp/Mommy and me Zumba etc.). My Fitness Company is all about working hard, eating right and having fun!!!! I work one on one or I offer group personal training. I am very knowledgeable and I always find the time to keep on learning as fitness is always evolving.
I worked for Club Med as a fitness instructor and choreographer for their Animation Team and choreographed dance shows. I received a certification to teach belly dancing and worked with the circus team on the trapeze doing specialty acts. This became a wonderful outlet for me and gave me the chance to really build a strong being inside and out.
I am very passionate about my job. I find it very rewarding to help people feel good about themselves and get the results they aspire to and to be happy. That's why I fell in love with Zumba. It's wonderful to see people smile, laugh and walk out feeling energized. We dance, sweat, laugh and the time just passes so quickly. I teach Zumba at many different locations including corporations around the West Island and Montreal area. Now I have moved into the lives of young students in Elementary and High Schools and offer a wide variety of fitness programs to help them understand how important it is to exercise and eat right but at the same time have fun. I want my children to grow up knowing the importance of being active and healthy and it is my number one goal for me to be that perfect role model in their lives.
I am an Ambassador for lululemon athletica and that has been a wonderful experience. It makes me very happy to be a part of these people’s lives that work hard to be key leaders in the community and promote health and happiness. I am very proud to be able to call them my family.
I wake up everyday proud of my accomplishments and thankful to be able to change people's lives. I LOVE what I do and would not change my life for anything!
I am very happily married to my best friend and have two beautiful boys who are the apples of my eyes.
Book your next Zumba experience and feel great about yourself!
