From the time she was a little girl growing up on the shores of the Black Sea in the Soviet Union, Elena has been an enthusiastic athlete and exuberant spirit. At a young age, her accomplishments in swimming lead her to a position in a Soviet swimming development program. For all of the upheavals in creating a new life in a new country, sports have been her constant pleasure and passion. She has a particular fondness for mountain biking, mountaineering, and skiing.
When Elena arrived in the United States 28-years-ago, she couldn’t speak English. She worked as a janitor and a dishwasher and eventually earned a business degree and held good jobs in the corporate world.
Elena found San Francisco CrossFit while researching treatments for pain and stiffness. Over the years, she’d been in car accidents, had several sports-related injuries, and spent years sitting behind a desk. Her search led her to Kelly’s mobilitywod.com, where she discovered the tools and techniques to improve her range of motion and relieve pain. Thanks to the coaches of San Francisco Crossfit, Elena has her sights set on competing in CrossFit Masters.
Elena applies Kelly’s Movement and Mobility System paired with Crossfit training to help her clients increase range of motion, build strength, develop new skills, and avoid injury. Whether her clients are new to exercise, getting back into shape, or already fit, Elena brings a passion and focus to tailoring her sessions to each client’s unique set of abilities and goals.
