Coach Elaine Williams
MA. RScP. CHEK Practitioner, Holistic Lifestyle Coach
Driven by purpose and passion! I turned a setback into a six-pack.
I overcame a back injury without surgery when 8/8 doctors said emergency surgery was my only option. Now, I teach the 6-step success model that helped me turn a setback into a six-pack. I hope my story will inspire you to work smarter, not harder so you can experience your body’s fullest potential!
Elaine’s Motto: The Body Never Lies
Elaine is the founder of EMW Fitness, an educational, motivational and holistic approach to leading a fitness lifestyle. Elaine’s back injury at 19 yrs of age led her to study and apply various disciplines to re-train the mind, and provide the conditions for the body to restore balance, increase strength, and become sustainable for leading a fitness lifestyle.
Elaine’s motto is “The Body Never Lies”. Combining the wisdom of the body with the science of mind, Elaine specializes in training the psychological muscles at the same time as the physical muscles. When eight doctors told Elaine emergency surgery was her only option to a severe back injury, she still believed there was another way to heal without surgery.
