Meet the Team

Name: Loz Elliot

Company Role: Community Engagement Officer

What do you do for Your Leisure and for how long: I started my first role as a community coach helping with sporting activities throughout the summer holidays within kid’s summer camps and the Reconnect initiative. 

Past Experience: I have a very sporty background. I work in the fitness industry as a sports and health coach, I teach exercise classes in and around health clubs, gyms and in the community. I have a sports science diploma, as well as nutrition and personal training qualifications, I have also worked with kids in non-main streams schools teaching them Boxfit.

What do you like about working for YL: Since my role started as a community coach, I have really enjoyed doing something different but still helping keeping everyone active and fit, working with children and getting more involved with the mental health side of the job delivering activities for Adults with learning difficulties, and other disabilities... I definitely want to do more to help by bringing more activities to everyone and for everyone.

What drive’s you: I’m very passionate about health and fitness and have been ever since I can remember. Exercise is great for mental health, knowing that I’m helping people throughout my day with exercise, nutrition and well being drives me to do more.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work: When I do get some free time then I like to make time for my family my son and friends. I also like paddle boarding, I took this up for myself throughout lockdown and it’s a bit of me time. Fitness is my job but also my hobby.
