Get to Know Elle

I am Elle Blackwell - Fitness Coach, Nutrition and Health Coach, 6 x Bikini Champion, advocate for work/life balance and workplace health, and lover of all things mindset and performance.

I specialise in competition preparation and posing coaching, body and mindset transformations, and nutrition and health education, with a strong focus on holistic health and well-being. I believe in tailoring an approach that is as unique as you are, and in the value of cultivating habits and a mindset that will set you up for success.

I have worked as a Fitness professional since 2007 alongside a career of 11 years in Workplace Health and Injury Management. A unique combination of knowledge and experience that has given me an amazing insight into the impact that health behaviours have on your physical and mental health, overall wellbeing, as well as happiness and the confidence and ability to set big goals and achieve them.

I have been an athlete in competitive sports for most of my life and have also experienced my own transformation, both physically and mentally. I understand firsthand the work and discipline that goes into change and success, as well as the support and coaching tools you will need to get you there.

For many years I have successfully juggled a corporate role, competing in fitness competitions, coaching athletes and ongoing study and education, and it is my mission to empower people to reach their full potential.

My philosophy is that your commitment to your health – physical, mental and spiritual, impacts on all other areas of your life. Personal, professional, relationships with others and yourself, and how you show up in the world.


My belief is that anyone is capable of

success, extraordinary achievements and meaningful change

given the right support, education, environment and with the right attitude and mindset.
