If you've experienced taking a class with Ellarie, you know she is a powerhouse. You can tell she has a passion for fitness and a depth of knowledge in strength. We are excited to recruit her to coach at enduarLAB to help athletes reach their full potential. Learn more about her below!
Where are you originally from?
I'm from Rocklin, CA. After high school, I made the move to Texas for college (Guns Up!) and in 2021, I graduated and moved to Fort Worth!
What brought you to enduraLAB?
I had two friends, Caitlin Stephenson and Hudson Lorfing, try for months to get me to join the Lab. I'm glad they didn't give up! But really I was looking for a great place to meet people, lift heavy, and feel good about my workouts again.
What do you expect to bring to the table?
My mom brought me to a strength and conditioning gym when I was 12 years old. The goal was to get stronger for volleyball, but it turned out, I liked working out more than playing volleyball. Throughout high school and college, I competed in Crossfit and Olympic weightlifting. That being said, I love to strategize with athletes at how to best to use their strengths to attack a workout but I also remember that feeling of being brand new to all the movements, workout styles, and group class flow. I know what it takes to be successful in a class and get a great workout in, and I love sharing those tips with athletes, too!
What do you love about the LAB?
I love how friendly and welcoming everyone is. Also, the programming is on another level- Lee is some sort of genius. I've hit numbers I havent hit in a very long time while also improving my conditioning. It's a great place where everyone is invited to be themselves and work hard, what's not to love?
What are your fitness goals?
I want to get stronger at running, I'd love to finish a half marathon. Also, unbroken Fran has been a goal of mine for a while.
What are you currently reading?
Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen. 10/10 recommend.
What song is really pumping you up right now?
Not really pump up music, but I'm on a John Mayer kick currently.
What is your favorite show/movie?
The Office, hands down.
What are two things on your bucket list?
I really want to visit all 50 states (24 down!!) and take a live cycling class at the Peloton studio in New York!
Is there anything else you want the LAB community to know about you?
I have so enjoyed being a part of the LAB. I can't wait to see what the future holds! Also, if anyone ever wants to nerd out about oil and gas, real estate, or saving for retirement, I am all ears!!
