Elena has a Masters in Physiotherapy from the University of Queensland, a Bachelor Degree in Exercise and Sports science, and has been an active physio for over 12 years. She is particularly interested in high performing athletes with a current interest in Weightlifting and Crossfit. She has traveled extensively with sports teams across the years, more recently touring with the HK Hockey Team, the HK Netball team to the Asian Championships and working at the Commonwealth Games 2018 at the Hockey Centre. Elena keeps fit herself with Crossfit, trail running and competitive hockey, and understands the demands of a high volume training on the body. She is always working hard to make sure her client’s injuries rehabilitate quickly and completely to allow them to get back to what they love, with as minimal time lost as possible.
Elena has worked with CrossFit Games and Regionals/”Sanctionals” athletes for the last 3 years, and understands the mechanical demands and loading volume of olympic lifting on the body. She can work closely with your coach or PT to rehab your injuries, and develop progressive programming to get you back to hitting your PRs! Make sure you look Elena up if you are hoping to return to high intensity training post-natally, as Elena has experience working with and interest in helping our return-to-lifting Mums.
