Weekly Inspirer - Elisa

Face Your Fears

This week we had the chance to talk with Elisa, a dedicated athlete who inspires us to reach our highest fitness and personal goals. Elisa shows us the importance of persistence and the power of pushing past your fears to achieve your wildest dreams. Follow Elisa on Quotiful for more fitness inspiration and empowerment! 

Quotiful: Your portfolio focuses on getting the best out of our bodies and developing a mental toughness in order to feel empowered to face life challenges. What experiences have you had that framed and inspired this outlook on life?

Elisa: Being an athlete since I was 15 and being in the Air Force for six years framed a tough mentality. And knowing that excuses weren't an option, that I was solely responsible for my mind and body's health.

Quotiful: What's your favorite quote or motto in life and why is it important to you?

Elisa: "When you fear something, the last thing you should do is run away from it."

This goes for everything I have encountered whether it was fitness related or life related. Many people never reach their full potential because they are afraid. And that's the biggest disappointment of all.

Quotiful: What core message do you hope to inspire others with?

Elisa: I think I would like to reach out and let people know that you have to keep fighting and keep moving forward. There are many unfortunate circumstances and things that are out of your control. But ultimately, you just take control of the things that you can. Despite where you were born, who you were born as, or any unfortunate circumstances, everyone has a choice. You can improve yourself, or you can self-destruct. And every choice you make has a consequence.

Below are a few of Elisa's quotes to encourage us all to feel empowered.
