Elizabeth Cardoso
Head Coach/Albany Adventure Boot Camp Co-Owner

I have been a fitness enthusiast all my life. I enjoy a variety of team sports as well as playing tennis and strength training. I have trained for and competed in several women’s obstacle course competitions
such as Women’s Tri Fitness, duathlons, and half marathons.

After years of balancing my athletic pursuits, training clients and my career in the corporate sector, I decided to put my passion for fitness at the center of my professional life.

I believe that every Woman has that inner athlete in them! Through proper nutrition and an exercise program it is never too late to get started.

My passion is in helping women become Fit & Healthy.  I want to make a difference in their lives by helping them find the joy of a healthy, active lifestyle.
I LOVE what I do for a living.  It is so rewarding when my clients tell me their lives have changed because of their new lifestyle.  That they love the way they look and feel and that they now have more confidence and self esteem than they’ve ever had before.

Some of my favorite things to do – besides working out of course – are hiking, cross country skiing, yoga, and traveling.  I love experiencing new cultures and tasting new cuisines.

My 4-week program is designed with many fun filled and challenging exercises. You will gain strength, confidence, and many life-long friendships.

I am dedicated to helping you reach your fitness goals! All I expect is your best effort and a great attitude.
