Little Elm Mayor's Fitness Challenge

Welcome to the 2020 Mayor’s Fitness Challenge!

Fitness can be a challenge; it has been a big one for me. Since calling for the first Challenge in 2015, I have had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of residents whose lives have been changed as a result of this program. While the struggle never ends, taking this first step toward a healthier life has made a difference for many and could be the opportunity you have been looking for to embrace fitness as a regular part of your routine. 

Whether this is your first Challenge or your sixth, I hope you will join me and others from all over our community as we work together to stay active, get fit, and enjoy all of the health and recreation opportunities our Town has to offer.

Meet Your Coaches


Kelli Wilsey

I train a wide variety of levels, from people who have never worked out before to athletes, especially those that just need that little push and accountability. Your health and fitness can never be a quick fix. It must become a lifestyle change because life doesn’t stop happening around us. It’s only when we intentionally put our health and fitness first that we are prepared for whatever comes our way. Beyond this, being healthy in body, mind, and spirit goes a long way in preparing us for life’s challenges.


Lisa Perez

I started as a member of the Little Elm Recreation Center in 2013, and I instantly fell in love with the group fitness classes. I began taking many classes like Insanity, Zumba®, and Step. The wonderful classes and great instructors inspired me to get my first certification as a Group Fitness Instructor. My passion, love for fitness, and helping others on their journey with fitness led me to become a NASM certified Personal Trainer. I have earned a Corrective Exercise certification and serve as a certified Nutrition Coach.


Kwan Sadler

I am an ACE certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach, and I am passionate about the interaction between nutrition and fitness. I specialize in small group training, group fitness, strength, and stamina. I believe in a holistic approach to health and fitness, and will guide you through every exercise, workout, and meal.


Laura Mikeska

A lifelong athlete and healthy living advocate, I have always been passionate about fitness and the impact it has on physical and mental health. I have been a Group Fitness Instructor at the Little Elm Recreation Center for over 5 years and teach several high energy classes. I love watching my community become active and connected through fitness, and I am so excited to lead my team to their goals!
