As an Olympic Development Program athlete and 2-time all-conference Division I college soccer player, Ellen experienced and played through significant injuries that resulted in three knee surgeries during her career. To say she understands the value of corrective exercise protocols, functional movement patterns, and rehabilitation-based training would be an understatement. She uses her experience as an athlete as well as her expertise in corrective and functional movement exercises to develop effective programming for a wide-range of clients, ages 30 to 80+. In addition to her work with clients, she also leads all new staff training for Industrial Strength. Ellen has been a personal trainer since 2010 and boasts personal training certifications from both the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the World Instructor Training School. She also holds a Functional Movement Screen certification (Level 2 training) from Functional Movement Systems. Additionally, Ellen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Davidson College and a Master of Business Administration degree from The Bryan School of Business and Economics at UNC-Greensboro.
