Management Team

Elise Manolakos
Health and Wellness Consultant


After graduating from Kinesiology, Elise wanted to help people choose healthy habits to reduce distress in their lives. She started coaching patients in long-term care as a physiotherapist. She learned that there is no value in material things unless you have your health.

After achieving her lifelong dream of running her 1st marathon on the Great Wall of China, she became "EMbitious". Next, she moved to Australia for 1 year to start her own personal training business and travel.  Upon returning home from an adventure of a lifetime, she experienced an all-time low and had to restart her life again.


Four years later, she started EMbitious Health Community to help others maintain active living for life! And now she has expanded those services to corporations, businesses, groups and individuals alike.

Elise knows that a team that works well together understands the strengths and weaknesses of each team member. One of the benefits of strong teamwork in the workplace is that team leaders and members become proficient at dividing up tasks so they are done by the most qualified people. 


A sense of unity, of enthusiasm for common interests and responsibilities, as developed among a group of persons closely associated in a task or cause is the glue which keeps a team together, a bond which promotes strength, unity, reliability and support. Elise helps create these outcomes for companies on many levels.
