elli bolandpure barre ambassador
Elli was born and raised in a small village in Germany. She always knew she wanted to help people feel whole and free. Her first job was at an all women’s gym where she discovered the benefits of exercise for wellbeing. After studying Physio Therapy (a European degree that combines exercise science, physical therapy, massage, athletic training, and chiropractic), she began to work for professional sports teams, where she met the love of her life, Dan. She took a leap of faith and followed the American boy at age 23 to the states. Married for almost 11 years now, the two live in Charleston, SC.
Elli’s degree from Germany did not transfer, so she had to start all over, which turned out to be a great gift. She graduated with honors from College of Charleston with another degree in Exercise Science and a focus on Psychology in 2007. In the meantime she earned a living as a Holistic Personal Coach, training her clients in exercise, nutrition, and personal growth. She had a desire to help people at a deeper level and added a Yoga certification, Ayurvedic counseling degree, and other personal development studies to her repertoire. She recently completed a Lifestyle Consultant program with Abundant Yogi Kris Ward.
She has created her own business as a Holistic Life Coach, and is also co-owner of ‘Agents of Change’ Lifestyle Consulting with her dearest friend Ashley Cebulka. She loves expressing her life’s purpose in many fun ways: 1-on-1 coaching, couples’ coaching, public speaking through workshops and seminars, and teaching Yoga classes.
Elli was introduced to Pure Barre in 2012 through Lululemon, where she has been an Ambassador for the last three years. She was immediately on fire and has been a regular ever since. Teaching all sorts of fitness classes for 16 years, the 35 year old Elli has found her new home. She feels inspired to attend PB, and loves the way she can tune into her body during class, giving her a break from the ‘stinking thinking’. Her love for PB has infected her husband, and the two enjoy laughing at each other in class whenever possible, making new friends, and getting an amazing workout.
Elli is elated to share her love for PB, and believes that it can help people everywhere to not only find fun and enjoyment in their workouts and quick results, but also increases self esteem and confidence. She dreams of a world in which every woman feels comfortable in her own skin, so that she can fulfill her life’s purpose while feeling confident and energized. Furthermore, as a business owner, Elli appreciates the PB brand and adores the founder Carrie, and her perseverance in making her dreams come true.
