Welcome Elie Hsu, CSCS, SPT


Welcome to the A2 Family Elie Hsu!

After growing up in Bellingham, WA, Elie obtained her BS in Biology from the University of Washington.  Upon graduation, she moved to Nashville, TN to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Belmont University.  Her love for physical therapy is rooted in her passion to help those around her get back to what they love to do, whatever that may be.  She hopes to help her patients overcome debilitations and become more active. Teaching individuals what they can do to improve their own lives both immediately and for years to come is also a goal of hers.  She loves the interpersonal aspect of physical therapy and cannot wait to broaden her experience, skills and knowledge at A2.  In her spare time she can be found hiking, running, working out and spending time with her family and friends.

"William and I have been working out with Kristi on Saturday mornings for months now and we love it! We find the couples training so beautiful physically, mentally and relationally. Kristi not only challenges us with cardio and lifting but has introduced us to exercises that relate to balance and stretching. As we enter our 60’s we appreciate these balance routines and can see how it benefits our daily lives. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard William say, “I am not doing that, that’s a girl exercise!” and then later he’ll say “wow that was harder than I thought” or sometime that week he’ll bring up an exercise we do on Saturday and how it benefited him that day! Most importantly we have blast encouraging each other, competing with each other and having fun! We appreciate A2 and Kristi for providing a space for us to stay fit and have fun. We wish you all much success! Thank you"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all that you have done to help me get better. What I admire the most is that you have a kind, caring, outstanding staff that not only listens to what is going on with us but goes the extra mile to help each of us achieve our goals. Danny and Alika never, never, never gave up on me and helped me reclaim my life. I love all of you dearly."

"Before I started coming to A2 I was always tired and could barely pick up or carry my grandchildren a ½ block. After the first 6 weeks of working with Kristi I got a big surprise when I took my grandchildren to a festival and carried the youngest 4 blocks before she woke up enough to walk. I then picked her up and put her on my shoulders so she could see better without effort. I was amazed at how much strength I had gained in a short time. I continue to see improvement in my strength and I’m no longer tired all the time."
