OUR PERSONAL TRAINERS
CHRIS HOLLAND ELLIS
Chris founded To The Limit Personal Training in 2014 when he relocated to Basel, Switzerland with his family.
Chris is orignally from Costa Rica, where he was involved with sports since a very young age. He competed in semiprofessional mountain-biking, which sparked his broader interest in fitness and helped him launch his career as a Personal Trainer in 2005 when he earned a scholarship to study in Chile where he followed his first course in Personal Training. He moved to Hong Kong in 2007 and initially worked for Pure Fitness specializing in personal training and spinning classes. During that time, he became certified Charles Poliquin trainer. He later moved to Raw Personal Training where he focused on strength training for professional athletes and fat loss.

Clara was born in Geneva, Switzerland and shortly after her parents relocated to Basel, where she grew up and went to school. Since her parents both played Badminton it was only natural that she would take up that sport too. She played for about 10 years until she went to Zurich for her biology studies.
Back in Basel she then started an apprenticeship to become an animal caretaker, which she completed in 2013, 3 years later. Since then she has been working in Novartis as an animal caretaker. During those years she did some Zumba and took Bootcamp and other fitness group classes.
In January 2016 she came across an ad from To the limit Fitness and decided to give it a try and has never regretted it since. Having always been interested in fitness lifestyle and nutrition, when Chris suggested she join him as a Trainer, she didn't need a lot of encouragement and promptly enrolled in school to become a certified fitness instructor, which she will be finishing in February 2017.
