Ella’s desire to revolutionize our mindsets around eating, weight, and fitness is wholehearted and flows from a deeply personal place. Ella has been a plant-based athlete since 1987, when, at the age of 7, she connected the meat on her plate with the animal it once was and vowed never to eat meat again. Not only that, she knew her purpose in life was to spread her message of compassion for all sentient beings to the world. In 1995, Ella went fully vegan and became a leader in the animal advocacy movement within her community.
Ella worked in the fitness industry for over decade as a fitness director, personal trainer and group exercise instructor. During that time she competed and won first place in the bikini division of the Fame World Championships to prove it could be done as a vegan. The pressure she put on herself to maintain a “perfect” body in order to represent what’s possible eating exclusively plants led her to develop an eating disorder and distorted body image, which plagued her behind closed doors for years.
After healing from her own struggles with disordered eating, Ella was called to help people align their actions with their values, develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies, and create a joyful and meaningful life. She earned her Master’s Degree in social work, and began to develop a compassionate curriculum for her clients to follow.
Now, through her podcast, visionary writing, inspiring talks, and unique coaching programs, she’s helped thousands of people adopt a plant-forward lifestyle, embrace movement, embody self-compassion, and stand tall in their personal truths.
Ella Magers shows people that there are alternatives to crash diets, excessive workout regimens, and lives dictated by subconscious programs that don’t serve. She’s on a mission to prove that plant-based living is the quickest path to holistic health and that true and lasting wellness is achievable for everyone.
As a passionately curious human, Ella loves connecting with other plant-based leaders ,diving deep into their stories, and sharing their wisdom with the world through her newest podcast. Rise & Thrive is a holistic health and wellness-forward show for the vegan curious and the curious vegan, and has quickly attracted a global audience.
Most recently, after overcoming her own experience with burn-out, Ella launched 22Reboot, a 22-day transformation system designed to help entrepreneurs, professionals, and leaders disrupt harmful patterns, prevent burn-out and create a healthy lifestyle for maximum energy, performance, and impact.
Ella is open to partnering with highly innovative and values-driven leaders and companies that are working towards a better planet for both animals and humans.
When she’s not traveling, you can find Ella at home in Miami Beach with her beloved senior rescue chihuahua, Shye, swimming, kayaking, dancing, doing yoga, boxing, and calisthenics, and spending valuable time with her friends and family.
