A smile and words of encouragement always go a long a way, in Elia's class you will always enjoy yourself and have fun! She brings her own experiences to the table, as anytime she feels defeated in a fight her coach Master Sam always knows what to say to bring her out of the funk - if she can achieve the same whilst teaching that means she has done her job!
Did you know?
- When she was 11 years old, Elia vomited on a woman’s shoes at US Open due to her banana intolerance. Because she did not speak a word of English (French is her first language), whilst the woman was angrily saying something she just said “Pardon”, smiled and walked away. She then didn't mention the incident to her parents.
- Elia is allergic to bananas.
- She has fought in the European Muay Thai Championships, in the Czech Republic.
- Her fighter name is Royal Princess.
When she's not at Flykick, Elia is outside enjoying the sun in attempts to catch a glowing tan in London weather. Or on the studio floor sleeping in a corner with her scarf/blanket...
Apart from Flykick she trains at her Muay Thai gym, KO Next Generation.
Elia always has an Eat Real soft handmade coconut bar to hand to tuck into after training.
