Meet Ellen Ector, A 63-Year-Old Mom Who Quit Her Job As A Social Worker To Become A Fitness Trainer

By Duchess Magazine

Ellen Ector, a 63-year-old mom of five, grandmother of four has become health inspiration to people everywhere.
After 20 years as a social worker, she decided to quit her job and pursue fitness training in 2009. “I said, ‘Either you’re gonna do this fitness thing or you’ll be working for someone else for the rest of your life,’” she told us

“I haven’t looked back since… I love what I do!” She now co-owns Gymnetics Fitness and GymJuice in Atlanta.
All of the exercises can be done with little to no equipment, an intentional decision by the mom-daughter team. Ector says, “Your body is a machine.” She also says that it makes working out affordable for women who may not have the means to invest in a gym membership or buy workout machinery for their homes.

The fitness guru was especially interested in targeting black women after her mother died of uterine cancer at age 63.
The CDC reports that 57.6% of black women 20 years old and older are obese. And obesity, according to Mayo Clinic, increases the risk of uterine cancer.
To anyone who’s having trouble getting fit, Ector says, “Be patient. You have to take baby steps.”
And because health is so much bigger than the physical, she also dropped this little gem: “Don’t use your body as a dump. Stop dumping in boyfriend problems, stop dumping in the bad food!”
