Meet Lizzie Dorn
- Out of which Elite locations do you conduct training?
I conduct training at West Brookfield.
- How long have you been a personal trainer and how long have you worked at Elite?
I started working at Elite Sports Clubs at the beginning of November 2019. I was certified as a personal trainer from 2014-2016 and am currently getting my re-certification with the American Council on Exercise.
- What made you want to start working as a personal trainer and/or for Elite?
I am passionate about fitness and enjoy working with people one-on-one to help them reach their fitness goals. I like Elite’s cohesive model of working as a family to provide the best services.
- What is your favorite part about being a personal trainer?
My favorite part about training is when a client accomplishes a goal or major milestone after many hours of training.
- What areas of exercise/fitness do you consider to be your specialty?
I specialize in cardio programming, strength training, high-intensity training, and rehabilitative exercises.
- What has been your biggest personal struggle with health/fitness?
I had several stress fractures that I have had to overcome with rehabilitation and safe training practices.
- What has been your biggest personal accomplishment with health/fitness?
Training for and completing a half marathon.
- What advice do you give people who are starting a workout program for the first time or after a long absence?
I would advise them to take it slow. They will not be the same level as they were before if they previously worked out and that is okay. It is easier to do a workout program when you are encouraged by others so find a buddy or someone to encourage you!
- What advice do you give people who are struggling to make health/fitness a priority or are getting bored/burned out?
I would advise them to try something new that makes them excited or to do something active with a friend. Making health a priority will help them live a happier, healthier, long-lasting life.
- What personal advice do you give someone who is looking to get to a healthier point in their life in general?
I advise them to seek out others that are wanting to be healthier. Create or join a healthy community such as a gym, group exercise classes, or taking healthy cooking classes. They will get the help if they surround themselves with others who are doing the same.
