I practice what I preach and is motivated to share my very unique wealth of fitness/wellness knowledge with my clients. I have been involved and devoted to a variety of different aspects of physical fitness, experienced a wide variety of training regimes and practiced a healthy living lifestyle.
My time spent in Russian gymnastics, my training as a circus aerialist , and my successful business history in fitness/nutrition gave me a valuable base of knowledge to work from. To further refine how to apply that knowledge and how to maximize my efficiency in achieving success for my clients, I'm a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, I also am CERTIFIED by ISSA as a Fitness Trainer, DSW as a CERTIFIED Personal Fitness Trainer and in American Red Cross CPR/First aid. My formal education and practical memberships include: International Aerobic Fitness Association (awarded international certificate in fitness), designated a Master World Class of Fitness and Aerobics as well as a Master of Sports Gymnastics, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education with focus on Physiology, Anatomy, Kinesiology and Nutrition.
I developed my unique knowledge and fitness perspective by:
* Successfully participating in the world-renown Russian gymnastics programs from the age of 4
* Touring as a high-wire aerialist with the Russian circus
* Owning a very successful private fitness business complete with multiple locations/ trainers and an impressive list of clientele
* Moving to France in 2001 where I continued to train and broaden my experience in training techniques
* Moving to Arizona in 2006 where now I'm sharing my unique world-wide experience and knowledge with the clients.
It is my passion and goal to share everithing what I have learned and gained.

    Elvira is fantastic! I lost 3 sizes in two months. Being a registered dietitian she gives a good solid meal plan that doesn't leave you hungry. Is it a commitment? Yes, it is. Not only for the physical part, but for the nutrition as well. For me that is the hardest part.

    When I work out from now on, in my head, I will hear, "Chrystal...faster..." She is both taskmaster and cheerleader at the same time. She always keeps you safe, even when you feel like your going to sweat to death. Highly recommended!

    Greatest investment I ever made!!! Elvira has constantly helped motivate me during work outs. While training with her I've never experienced any plateau in my results. Her combination of nutrition planning and variety of exercises are so effective. In just over 4 months I lost 80 pounds and in the last 5 months I've built muscle and had really exciting strength gains. When I first started training just walking up the stairs would wear me out. She was able to maximize the work outs with my limited strength and energy. Now I've completed in a Spartan Race and planning to run in the Tough Mudder.

    In all honesty I never dreamed that a personal trainer could help me achieve so much. I weigh less than I did in College and I feel incredible.

    I can say with total certainty that I'm in the best shape of my life! I've been training with Elvira for 10 months and my results have been and continue to be amazing! I'm about to turn 49 and feel better than I have since I was in my 20s. Elvira has guided me toward better nutrition and overall health and wellness, and I'm doing things in the gym that I never thought I could or would ever do (and having a blast doing them!). I have significantly reduced body fat, shed the unwanted pounds, and gained lean muscle mass. I'm stronger, more energetic and happier overall. Seeking out someone to help was the first step, and I've been taking huge steps consistently from my initial consult to today. I'm grateful for the compassionate and caring guidance Elvira always shows me. She's the best decision I've made for ME in years! On a scale of one to ten, this experience is a 12 and continues to be! Don't hesitate - Elvira's programs are tailor-made to meet your health and fitness goals, and her programs deliver!

Elvira has guided me toward better nutrition and overall health and wellness and I'm doing things in the gym that I never thought I would ever do. Going into a clothes store and picking out what I want to wear instead of hiding behind things I think will hide me has been one of the most amazing benefits of working with Elvira to reduce body fat, shed pounds, and most importantly improve my cardiovascular abilities and tone up. I'm leaner, more muscular, more energetic and happier overall. Seeking out someone to help was the first step - I've been taking huge steps consistently from my initial consult to today.

    Best Decision Ever!!!!:

    I am a 37 year old female. I have been to several different trainers. I went to one trainer for 1 full year and never saw the results that I achieved with Elvira in 3 months. Elvira has been by far the best I have ever encountered. She was able to help me change my body where others were not so successful. I lost 30 lbs and 3 dress sizes. I am in the best shape of my life. I feel great. She had me do things I never thought I could. I love that she changes the workout every time. You never get bored. She offers detailed meals plans. This helped too. I strongly recommend Elvira.
