About Me


Who am I?

My name is Elese Sommerová and I am a strength & conditioning coach from Prague with American roots.  I am also currently a professional alpine skier who has competed in everything from World Cups to the Olympics.


Ski racing has led me to strength training on a regular basis for the last ten years. Through my experience as a professional athlete, I believe that individualized strength training has great performance and health benefits regardless if you are a professional athlete or are just simply wanting to look and feel good. In this case, an individualized approach is always king as no  individual is the same. That's why with me, our work together always begins with an initial diagnostic as well as basic performance tests in the case of an athlete. 

Outside of my professional skiing career, I am also studying Sports Science at the Faculty of Education & Sport at Charles University in Prague. This allows me to perfectly combine my practical experience as an athlete with the theoretical nuances of strength and conditioning. To further broaden my knowledge and stay up to date with the current trends, I always try to further educate myself with the latest studies and information available.

What I Offer

My Services

​Performance Is Built on a Complex Approach

How it Works

Step by Step


Who are my workouts for?

My workouts are for everyone. At Sommerová Fitness, I don't discriminate based on age or what physical shape someone is in. All that's important is proper motivation and a desire to be active. I believe that under my expert guidance, every newcomer will have an increase in their fitness level and general well-being. 


A complex approach

At Sommerová Fitness, I always start our work together with an initial diagnostic. This is a complex assessment of the musculoskeletal system comprised of a series of tests that allows me to see your movement limitations as well as performance reserves. This process takes about 45-60 minutes.


How does the training work?

Based on the results of the initial diagnostic, I create an individualized training plan. For personal training or online coaching, I work with you on a one-on-one basis. This means a personalized approach geared towards your goals whether they be improving your fitness level or eliminating pain. A workout is about 60 minutes long. A training plan is followed independently allowing you to take full autonomy of your fitness journey. Don't worry though, I am available via online support for any questions or concerns that may arise. 


How often do we train?

The frequency of training is entirely up to you. However, my minimum is once a week. 


Where do I book the initial diagnostic?

I've been having sessions with Elese for more than a year, and I can only say that she's one of the few coaches that were able to create a routine that works for me, my body type, and my lifestyle. She's very knowledgeable and explains very well how the exercises make sense in the routine. She's also very understanding and easy to talk to whenever I have doubts or requests about the routine.
