Elza boasts a wealth of experience as a Physical Therapist, amassing 7 years of expertise across diverse healthcare settings, spanning from hospitals to private clinics. Originally hailing from South Africa, she earned her degree in Physiotherapy from the prestigious University of Stellenbosch in 2015.
While Elza's roots trace back to South Africa, she also has deep ties to Minnesota from her childhood, even as her professional journey has predominantly unfolded in sunny Florida. Her heart remains close to her family, prompting frequent visits, and she's often on the move, whether it's traversing new destinations or hiking amid the great outdoors (though she wisely avoids Florida summers). Elza's passion extends to honing functional fitness.
Notably, Elza has achieved certification as a movement specialist through Functional Movement Systems. She's presently immersed in her pursuit of a Tactical Strength and Conditioning certification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, further nurturing her dedication to preventative movement screening.
