Let your lifestyle be your lifeline

Our Story

Spending nearly 15 years in the gym setting teaches you a lot. Most importantly, it teaches the value and importance of serving your client’s needs. Through listening, serving and observing, Founder Marquita Ell recognized a need that could not be filled by weight training alone. Her client’s needs went beyond diet and exercise. In 2019, that vision came to life. Ell’s Wellness was created for the everyday woman. A virtual health coaching platform designed to meet not only weight loss goals, but also stress loss and well-being. Ell’s Wellness prides itself on caring for the whole person. We’re getting to the root causes of what pains our client’s most, and what keeps them up at night. By tapping into who they are and how they live, our client’s are more empowered and motivated than ever to achieve and sustain their long term goals. Here at Ell’s Wellness, our focus is both physical health and spiritual healing. 

Our Mission

To lead client’s to a happier and healthier existence. Empowering women to become advocates of their own health, by listening to and learning their bodies beyond the scale.  

‘The strength of any space relies deeply on the well-being of the woman.’

Our Founder

There are times when we find our true purpose by witnessing another woman’s journey. National Board Certified Holistic Health & Lifestyle Coach Marquita Ell unknowingly found her purpose 20 years ago following the death of her maternal grandmother. With more questions than answers, it was during her journey of healing that she became fully present in her calling. 
Since 2006, Coach Ell has been on a mission to heal. Empowering client’s for more than 15 years to learn their bodies and take control of their health. With a more holistic approach in recent years, this St. Louis based Health Coach is clearing a path to whole body healing and sustained wellness. She listens first, always leading with literacy and longevity in mind. Teaching client’s to not only improve their quality of life, but to also share the language, behaviors and healthy practices with the family. Healing the village one household at a time.
As a Woman of Color, Marquita also understands the unique experiences of marginalized identities. The race and gender-related complexities of Black womanhood are continuing to plague communities in current day. Black women and mothers are undeservedly experiencing health crises at rates 2 or 3 times that of other races. For this reason, Marquita strives to honor the legacies of her ancestors with every woman who leaves her program healed, empowered and equipped to pass along a lifestyle of healthiness for generations to come.
In the words of our founder,
“When we tend to the needs of the Black Woman first, no one gets left out.”

The road to wellness has never been easier!
