Elaine Economou is co-founder & CEO for MOVE Wellness and has devoted her life to helping people get as strong as they want, to live a life they love. She designed MOVE to be a place where anyone can come to find the support, expertise and inspiration they need to meet their individual fitness goals and live healthy, balanced lives, regardless of age, experience or ability. Dedicated to fostering a continuum of care for community members beyond the MOVE studio, Elaine has developed collaborative partnerships with professional healthcare organizations, nonprofits and fitness clubs in and around Ann Arbor, including Trinity Health, Probility Physical Therapy, AFC Ann Arbor, Cancer Support Community of SE Michigan and Michigan Medicine. 

She created MOVE’s Pilates Instructor Training program to ensure those interested in pursuing a career in Pilates teaching can get the professional training, mentorship, and growth opportunities they need to develop the highest level of expertise and knowledge to support their clients. 

Elaine holds certification through the National Pilates Certification Program, STOTT PILATES and the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods. A lifelong student of movement and the human body, she has taken many specialty courses and continues to love to learn about human movement. When not teaching, Elaine can be found playing with her dogs in the forest near her home, gardening, spending time with her three boys and husband at home, traveling and relaxing at their favorite “up north” spot, Beaver Island.
