Our Method

Our method for women's fitness is guaranteed to work if the three simple steps are followed consistently:

Regular Weight-Lifting

Nutrition chart with fruit, veggies, protein, and grains

Proper Nutrition

Circle with the word HIIT inside

Consistent Cardio

Science-Backed Weight Training 

Fitnello is unlike any other fitness gym near you. We differ from others by uniquely combining functional fitness with weight training and HIIT training. Many of the studios emphasize the fact that they serve HITT or Cardio Based workouts.  We believe in both HIIT and cardio, but we also believe that it is impossible to build a dream body without regular weight lifting.  Simply put, you won't find any professional athlete anywhere in the world that managed to become a pro by just doing HITT and Cardio workouts.  Therefore, our method combines both approaches of HIIT and a meaningful weight lifting. 


We are a fully equipped, state of the art, all-women's gym. Classes and personal training are taught on-site at our studio or online. With our weight training and HIIT combo, no two workouts are ever the same!  

Nutrition Principles

Fitnello's nutrition approach is all about sustainability. This is not a diet where you will ever feel deprived. Here at Fitnello, we follow what we call our "5-FIT Rules". These rules are easy to remember and serve as your anchor for weight loss. That, along with our complete nutrition guide, dieting has never felt so effortless and enjoyable. You will learn to eat for your goals, to satisfaction, and flexibility, all while seeing weekly results that get you closer to your ultimate goal. 


Macros are the foundation on which Fitnello Nutrition was built and which all of the recipes are based on. When it comes to changing your body composition, it comes down to the macronutrient ratio that you consume daily more so than your total calories. Elina is not only a women’s body transformation nutrition expert, but she is also a fitness recipe creator with several cookbooks. With over 250+ macro-friendly recipes included within these programs, you will never find a single dull meal in your plan. Follow @fitnello.nutrition on Instagram for updated recipes.

About Our Founder

Fitnello Fitness Founder, Elina Basaraba, began her journey in health and fitness when she was 21 years old. Prior to that, she was a typical teenager who ate fast food for lunch, Starbucks frappes for midday "pick me ups", and a bowl of ice cream to finish off her day. She knew nothing about healthy eating or working out, and quite frankly, did not even care. Elina lived impulsively in the moment like most teenagers do, not thinking about how these unhealthy habits would affect her in the long run. 

During fall 2009, something very significant happened to Elina. That semester in college, a nutrition and weight lifting course had sparked her interest in a healthy lifestyle. This spark led her to begin her first blog titled "More Healthier You", where she would document the beginning of her journey on healthy eating and working out. 

After finding out in December 2009 that she was pregnant with her first child, Elina's interest in health further skyrocketed because of one simple realization; She was no longer eating for her, but for her baby as well. Being a newlywed, expecting, and a college student, Elina and her husband had a tight budget. In spite of that, she made the conscious choice to prioritize high quality, organic ingredients within their household. 

In 2015, Elina began private training sessions within her home in Seattle, Washington. After moving out of state and earning a reputable name in the greater Sacramento area, Elina opened her flagship studio in Rocklin, California in 2019.
