Elizabeth Di Lieto

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Nessuno nasce imparato - nobody is born knowing

I joined the fitness industry in 2014 after finding my passion in training.  As a mother of 2, it wasn't easy to find the time, let alone the motivation to train. I spent months walking in and out of the gym, feeling daunted, out of place and not really knowing what to do. I found myself gravitating towards the treadmill, just because it was easier than anything else.  When I eventually realised that others were concentrating on their own goals and weren’t watching me attempt to train, I managed to relax and focus on myself and what I was trying to achieve.   

My aim is to help those that feel like I did; unsure of what to do whilst in the gym or how to train.  I want to encourage and support people to find their motivators, set their goals and work hard to achieve them, all the while remembering that falling isn’t failure but refusing to get back up is.  

As well as being a Level 3 Personal Trainer, I am also qualified in Senior Fitness, Weight Loss and Mental Health Awareness, therefore I consider all aspects of one's life to create a bespoke sustainable lifestyle plan, empowering them with the knowledge and skills required to achieve long term success and a healthier lifestyle.

How can I help you improve your health?

My passion has always been sports and that is why I studied for a degree in Physical Activity & Sports Sciences. I specialized with a Master's in Training Optimization and Physical-Sports Readaptation since I have a special interest in the prevention-rehabilitation of injuries and in the improvement of the physical condition in athletes.

I have worked as a sports rehabilitator in multidisciplinary centres, as a physical trainer in football teams and as a personal trainer in fitness centres, where I have always given my 100% so that the people who work with me achieve their goals, in a healthy, progressive, supervised and controlled way. This is what I do, and helping you overcome your challenges is what fulfils and satisfies me the most as a person and as a professional.
