As a dancer through college, Lisa always loved moving to a beat. The lack of adult dance classes led her to replace dance with running, but she kept getting injured due to the lack of proper cross training. Lisa found Barre-Up after a friend suggested she try barre classes instead of wasting money on a gym membership she never used. She became obsessed. After a few classes turned into a monthly membership, her runs got easier, injuries diminished, and she felt stronger and more confident that she had in a long time. Barre became more than cross-training, so much so, that she got her Barre certification in 2016.
She enjoys teaching the early morning classes and making them fun, upbeat, and "Choose your own adventure" style to get the day started. She loves incorporating exercises you can do at the office or at home to promote overall health and wellness to make sure everyone is a rockstar from the inside out!
In her free time, Lisa enjoys taking care of her zoo (2 dogs, a cat, rats, turtles & a fish!), training for run-ventures with her better half, getting caffeinated at Cup A Joe, reading all the things, and geeking out over fandoms.
