I am 23 years old and originally from Perryville, MO. I’m a recent 2019 graduate from McKendree University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and Sports Performance with a Minor in Sports Psychology to become a Personal Trainer. I played 4 years of Collegiate Soccer; 1 Year at Jefferson College at the NJCAA Division I Level and 3 Years at McKendree University at the NCAA Division II Level where I was named captain for both teams. I also played a year of Semi-Professional Soccer in St. Louis that was apart of the NPSL. I graduated from McKendree University with Academic Honors with being named on the Dean’s and President’s List, along with being apart of the National Academic Honors Society “Phi Thetta Kappa” during my time in college.

I am certified as a High-Intensity Training Specialist through HITuni and QuickHIT University, certified as a Fitness Nutritionist Specialist through NASM and am also certified in Basic Life Support and CPR through Red Cross. I have previous work/training experience through The Grind Fitness and Sports Performance Center, along with work/training experience through the Fitness Center at McKendree University. I have also had my own private personal training and nutritional practice for the past few years where I have been able to positively affect the lives of some really great people with my knowledge and services. Training and Nutrition have always been a hobby of mine but personally helping people through Training and Nutrition, is my passion.

HIT Specialist: Nick Ellefson

I am 22 years old and have grown up in and around the St. Louis area. I am a recent graduate (2022) from Saint Louis University with a Bachelor’s degree of Exercise Science, a minor in psychology, and a concentration in interprofessional practice. I am currently continuing my education in the Physical Therapy program at SLU where I plan to graduate in the spring of 2024. I graduated from SLU magna cum laude and was a member of the deans list for all 6 of my undergraduate semesters. I was also heralded with an excellence in community service award for my work away from the classroom where I often helped introduce prospective students and children to the world of Physical Therapy. 

I am a certified High-Intensity Training Specialist through HITuni and QuickHIT University, as well as certified in Basic Life Support and CPR through the American Heart Association. I am working my way to become a “movement specialist” with my continued education as a Physical Therapist. I have previous work and clinical experience as a Physical Activity Technician at Barnes Jewish Hospital as well as clinical experiences within my studies as a Physical Therapy Student. Personally, I have had my own fitness journey that I have climbed through over the past 6 years, so feel free to ask me about it! I am passionate about helping individuals understand health, training, and fitness and helping push and work with individuals to reach their goals.
