In January of 2019 Ellen enrolled in the internship program here at PP. From there, she began coaching at Progressive Performance part time and transitioned to a full time position in Spring 2020. She has a passion for coaching and helping people increase their confidence through strength training.
Ellen has also participated in many active hobbies and competitive outlets after gymnastics. She started out with running and completed three half marathons between 2014-2016 before finding her true passion in Spring 2017, powerlifting. It wasn’t until September 2017 that Ellen signed up for her first powerlifting competition and she hasn’t looked back since. With a few titles, two national competitions and a state record under her belt, she continues to push her limits and is currently training to get closer to her 1000# total and a 400# deadlift goals. Outside of coaching and lifting, Ellen enjoys reading (big Harry Potter fan!), learning how to play guitar and spending her free time with friends and family!
