About elan

 Elan Fitness and Nutrition is founded by fitness professional and nutrition coach, Thea Boatswain.

Providing exceptional care for all of Elan's clients is of top priority. Each client gets special attention where they feel like they’re the ONLY client. We make sure that our clients don't feel like they’re going at it alone but with a dedicated friend that want to see them succeed. 


Hailing from...nowhere really...Thea is a military 'brat' currently living in the DC Metro Area. Elan Fitness and Nutrition was created as a way for Thea to help her community become "the best version of themselves". Believing that helping her clients become healthier through physical fitness and proper diet is what they really need and it drives her to get up every day.  

Thea currently has three degrees. One in Nutrition and Dietetics and two in Agriculture and Animal Science. She uses this background along with her certifications in physical fitness to help her clients achieve their physical and nutritional goals. Thea has worked with clients internationally too, as far as the UK and South Africa through her online training programs.

Available for speaking engagements and fitness events Thea has worked with numerous groups around the DC area. If you would like to have Thea come and speak with your group or lead a fitness class. Please contact her HERE .

Working with Thea has helped me see that eating healthy is more delicious than I ever thought.
