About Elevate YOU

“Love Thyself With Free Expression" is our motto and our mission.

As women, we wear a multitude of hats: wife, mother, caregiver, provider, and career woman (just to name a few). It's easy to get caught up in it all, and if we're not careful, we can lose ourselves in the process—providing for everyone's needs except our own. Elevate YOU offers women the platform to focus on themselves, conveying our expression through fitness and dance.

Elevate YOU is designed to help women succeed in their fitness journeys through expert coaching, instruction, and prestigious customer service.

We currently offer all levels of pole as well as conditioning, HIIT/Crossfit, chair dance, and movement for women with pain and mobility issues.
