Lisa understands that her clients are multifaceted individuals. Fitness is not just about fat loss or strength, it is much more complex. Fitness is about improving your life, having vitality, and a body that is agile, flexible, strong, and has longevity, so that personal goals can be reached both today and in the future.
During Lisa’s years of working in healthcare, she saw patients treated from the outside in. Surgeries, braces/orthoses, and medication were common. When she encountered her own aches and pains, followed by serious injuries, and subsequent surgeries, she gained further insight into how injuries are rehabilitated. Each part of the body that was injured or had an issue seemed to be treated alone, as though it wasn’t connected to the rest of the body.
Being well trained in massage therapy, gait analysis, and biomechanics, she knew that each joint and muscle could have profound influence over the rest of the body. There had to be a better way.
Through research and study she discovered the techniques of corrective and functional exercises. This was the missing piece and the key to injury prevention, rehabilitation, and optimal performance.
Each of Lisa’s clients begin with a complete fitness, gait, and movement analysis. In the analysis, Lisa will look at the entire body and how each individual part is affecting the other areas of the body. By looking at the way a client walks and moves through the world, Lisa determines which muscles might be out of balance in relation to other muscles, or not contracting in a timely manner when the body needs them most.
Custom corrective exercise programs increase joint longevity and decreases injury, while helping clients reach their peak performance. Lisa will help you to to learn about your individual body and how small adjustments to movement can lead to big performance results, while preventing future issues and injuries.
Lisa loves to hear that a client is experiencing more joy and less pain, that a client is back to the activities they love because their pain no longer exists, or that an athlete is performing better because their biomechanics are more efficient. Living and enjoying life, that is what it is about!
