About Elka

Welcome to Energise with Elka!

I’m Elka Pettifer, a Melbourne-based PT and Pilates instructor with an immense love of people and movement. After retiring from professional dance, it was a natural progression into personal training and to also become a Clinical Pilates instructor.

I am 48-years-old, a single mother of two beautiful children and love my life. I’ve always lived my life joyfully, dancing to my own beat with courage and conviction.  This is the driving force that keeps me energised and youthful.

Being a personal trainer means more than just fitness to me. I’ve had the pleasure of being around the most inspiring people, been blessed to correct their postures and together we’ve made a big difference to their health and wellbeing.

Let me energise you with my workouts; support you in finding the clarity in what makes you happy, and increase your fitness and vitality.

My commitment to healing this planet of ours starts one person at a time.  I would like you to join me in getting fitter, faster – and also fulfilled.
