Hillarie Scanelli

Personal Trainer



She is a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Coach since 1998. Hillarie has a background in fitness starting at a young age as an athlete and continued through high school as a competitive gymnast and cheerleader. Hillarie became a professional cheerleader for the USLF NJ Generals (1984-1987). It was there Hillarie became interested in becoming a personal trainer, as the owner of the NJ Generals football team hired personal trainers for the cheerleading team. She saw the benefits of learning proper weight-training techniques, in addition to the importance of cardiovascular exercise and healthy eating. Hillarie saw how much it helped her, and she knew this was something she would love to do for others. Hillarie was also a National Fitness and Figure Competitor from 1997 through 2011 –- winning her title in 2011 after having 2 children. In addition to working as a trainer for a cutting-edge sports training facility in NJ for 8 years, Hillarie had a home-based personal training business with over 50 clients. It became so successful that she and her husband opened a large personal training and elite athlete facility in NJ in 2011. They successfully owned and operated that business for 10 years and although they loved running the facility, they sold their business and built their dream home in South Carolina (August 2021). Still wanting to share her passion for fitness, Hillarie was very excited for the opportunity to train clients at Pivotal Fitness. Hillarie resides in Summerville, SC with her husband, Michael and her son, Joey who attends Trident Technical College. Hillarie and her husband have another son, Anthony, who is a college athlete playing football for Stevenson University in Maryland. In addition to her love for fitness and nutrition, Hillarie has a love for animals – and has an adorable Miniature Golden Doodle named Nico. When Hillarie is not training clients, she is enjoying time with her family and also loves crafts, wine tasting, visiting family in NJ, and traveling.
