"My childhood experience was quite unique because my parents were in the military," says Elliott, 27. "We moved several times both inside and out of the country. I was thankful for the experience because I grew up cultured, meeting all types of people from all walks of life."

“My parents and I are very close; they are like my best friends,” says Elliott. “If I had to compare myself to a sports team, I would call my mom my coach. She’s there at the tactical-level communicating daily and checking up on me. My dad is more like a general manager. He weighs in and provides his wisdom and knowledge on life-skills and major decisions. They have had my back since day one, and I know that I could not have achieved most of my accomplishments without their love and support.”

“I have one brother who is four years younger than me,” Elliott tells us. “Growing up, I often challenged him to outperform me. It was natural to have sibling rivalry, but deep down I wanted him to do better than me because I felt that I was the trailblazer. If I could show him some opportunities that were available, he might follow in my footsteps or blaze a trail of his own. I’m happy to say that I’m very proud of him; although we followed different paths growing up he has become very successful in his own right.”

“My friend invited to do my first bodybuilding show and from then on I’ve been on hooked on fitness,” says Elliott. “It wasn’t long after the first show that I realized that I could view my physique as a business, and the seed of becoming a fitness model was planted. I’m grateful for the lessons learned from wrestling and the military because I’ve been able to apply those same skill sets toward my fitness model endeavors.”

“The perfect date would be a night out on the town, where’d we visit a museum and check out the exhibits,” Elliott tells us. “Next we’d have a romantic candle-lit dinner at a nice restaurant, preferably Italian. Finally, we’d leave the restaurant and catch a movie or go to a lounge and enjoy some live music.”
