Elliott began his fitness and health journey in 2014 when he decided he was tired of being out of shape and significantly overweight. He tried various diets and exercise regimens including running (half-marathons) and body building exercises and got some results, but also got bored. Elliott learned about the newly built Illumine North and the New You program and decided to give it a try. After completing the program under the guidance of Coach Heather, Coach Donny, Coach Brian, and Coach Kai, he experienced significant results, and this time, without the boredom!
Since then, Elliott has been an active CrossFitter and member of the Illumine community. Elliott received a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and teaches music at Lakes Community High School. Elliott sought to continue to develop his knowledge and understanding of CrossFit by attending a L1 Seminar at CrossFit Mayhem in 2018. He entered Illumine’s extensive Internship Program soon after, completed those pre-requisites and is now our newest Coach In Training (lovingly referred to as a Green Shirt!).
Elliott is excited to utilize his teaching background in coaching members at Illumine North and helping them on their health and fitness journeys!! Give him a major welcome and a minor hard time in your next class with him!
