Hey Everyone, Meet Ellen!

Lions Krav Maga is thrilled to welcome our new Assistant Director, Ellen Martinez, to the Lions team!  Ellen began her Krav Maga journey in 2013 and quickly fell in love with  how it improved  her fitness, confidence, and sense of empowerment. She said that Krav training even helped her become a more compassionate person by exposing her to people from all different walks of life who come to Krav Maga for lots of different reasons.  Training together builds relationships, which is something that Ellen highly values.

In addition to Krav Maga, Ellen spends her free time training for obstacle course races.  She has done 6 Spartan Races, and completed the Spartan Trifecta (Sprint, Super, and Beast) all in one calendar year last year. She plans on doing the same again this year! She’s also completed the Foam Run, the ROC Race, and the Tough Mudder among others.  She’s an OCR addict!  Check her out!

Ellen also has two sons, Juan and Javier, and they love training together to become fitter and safer as a family.  When you see Ellen or her kids around the gym, be sure to introduce yourself and say hi.  They’re pretty cool people. 😉
