Your trainer is Elyse!

Elyse Sparkes is the owner of Sparkes Wellness and the mastermind behind everything you see here on She is a personal trainer, yoga teacher, fitness coach, Thai massage practitioner, and professional dancer. Elyse recently moved to the west coast and is excited to spread body kindness in Ventura, California. Read more about Elyse here.

Elyse’s personality and knowledge led me to a whole new level of fitness and body awareness.

Elyse has a delightful personality, which for me was a real motivating force as I did her challenging workouts. She’s there to teach you how to properly align your body, work your muscles, and create positive intentions as you approach each move. She taught me that I can do much more than I thought. In between workouts, she’s available by email or phone and provides helpful reviews and encouraging words to keep you going.

Elyse is professional, knowledgeable, optimistic, encouraging, and a lot of fun. This makes it much more tolerable as she pushes you through uncomfortable places in your muscles (and mind) to reach new levels of fitness.
