Strength, balance, flexibility, agility, endurance and control.
Elsabeth “Ellie” Black is a Canadian artistic gymnast who lives and trains in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Artistic gymnastics is a sport that requires strength, balance, flexibility, agility, endurance and control.
Staying healthy and being in peak physical condition is very important in competitive success, especially at the elite level.
Ellie comments that: "Physiotherapy has been a big component of my gymnastics career so far. Training as hard as I have, makes it necessary to have constant contact with my physiotherapist. Together, we have worked through injuries large and small, and I'm sure that I've avoided others because of our injury prevention plan. I'm very lucky to have such a great team behind me; I wouldn't be where I am without them!”
