Elaine Reid

As a 5-time Ironman finisher and with 30 marathons under my belt, I know about challenging myself to go the distance. I also know that going the distance whether in life or in sport is about having a healthy mind and body. Helping people achieve a healthy mind and body through exercise is what led me to becoming a personal trainer.

My passion for fitness and training started over 20 years ago, but it wasn’t until I began working out with a personal trainer myself that I saw some serious gains in the form of strength, speed and endurance. Strength training made me stronger and faster. The many hours of endurance training helped me tackle the mental aspect of the long distances.

Having a goal is what drives me forward and I approach my work with my clients in the same manner.  My workouts are personalized to the clients’ chosen goals with special consideration given for any limitations or injuries. I strive to keep things interesting, challenging and engaging for my clients. By customizing their sessions I can maximize their time spent in the gym.

My dedication and commitment to a healthy mind and body is defined by my belief in “walking the walk” and I love having the opportunity to share my enthusiasm!

When I’m not training in the gym, you can find me swimming, riding or running around Vancouver training for my next event.
