Eliza began teaching group exercise in 2015 after losing 75 pounds, partially from taking classes. She was so motivated and inspired by the instructors at MAC, she decided to give teaching a try! Eliza loves how encouraging the group exercise family is at MAC and truly believes it can change your life. Eliza’s first certification was in Les Mills’ Sh’bam™, then followed by BodyPump™ and BodyFlow™. She has added certifications in RPM™, Sprint™ and BodyCombat™. Eliza grew up in the Midlothian area, attended James River High School, and then was recruited to row at George Mason University. After an injury, Eliza transferred to VCU, where she graduated with a degree in psychology. While she plans to keep teaching group exercise classes, with the hopes of motivating and inspiring other to be the most healthy version of themselves, just like the team at MAC did for her, she also works as an assessor for Les Mills™.
