Elizabeth Ulseth was first introduced to STOTT PILATES® in 2003 as a method of cross-training for dance and skating. After her first few classes, she was hooked! Fitness has always blended with Elizabeth’s passion for movement of all kinds, from high level athletic performance to regaining strength after injuries and physiotherapy.

After earning a B.S. in Dance from MNSU, Mankato in 2011, Elizabeth knew that Pilates was the next step of her career. She began the STOTT PILATES Intensive Mat-Plus and Intensive Reformer courses at the SweatShop in 2011; became a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor in 2016 and a Merrithew Instructor Trainer in 2017. Elizabeth encourages clients to tune into their bodies to move effectively and efficiently. She’ll help you maximize your potential and meet your goals in a safe and intelligent way.
