WHO WE ARE
Founder and CEO
My name is Elin Kanchev and I am a fitness and lifestyle professional with over 20 years of experience. As a certified personal trainer, national champion in martial arts, and professional natural body building champion, I have personally motivated hundreds of people to achieve their goals and be successful in all aspects of life.
It all started in 1992; I was seven years old with health issues, and my doctors prescribed exercise. Once I started, I never stopped. I began training in martial arts, falling in love with the skill and discipline of the sport. I wanted to be the best, and as I witnessed my own transformation and improvement, my innate passion and excitement for life motivated me to keep learning and getting better.
I became a national champion and discovered my true vocation – sharing with others what I had learned so that they too were empowered to be active and to live their lives to the fullest by taking control of their own health and happiness. I realized if I could learn something new and implement it in my own life, others could too.

Leo is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) through NSCA and has worked with a variety of fitness populations (athletes, general and special populations). He has been able to help his clientele reach their fitness goals safely, using his whole-body approach to fitness where nutrition and lifestyle are equally important to training.
Since age 7, when Leo first engaged in competitively organized sports, training became an important part of his life. As he aged and moved up through the ranks of the local soccer academy, he continued to gain experience, first-hand, realizing the importance of proper training and its direct correlation between training in the weight room and performance on the field. Unquestionably, he was fascinated with human mechanics and physiology, which is why he decided to study the science of human movement.
Leo became part of ELIN’s team not only due to the desire to impact as many people as possible through connecting, training, educating and sharing but also by having common core values and beliefs.
