LISA CHALLENGES YOU WHEN YOU NEED IT, PUSHES YOU OUT OF YOUR BOX WHEN YOU NEED IT, TELLS YOU TO VALUE EVERY MOVE AND MOTION AS AMAZING THINGS YOUR BODY CAN DO...AND DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.
Lisa “shows up, whenever you need her to - for everyone, in many ways,” shares nominator, fitness student, and friend, Erin. As a former ER nurse and owner of a small boutique fitness studio, ‘Inspire’, in Mechanicsburg, PA, Lisa “challenges you when you need it, pushes you out of your box when you need it, tells you to value every move and motion as amazing things your body can do...and don’t take it for granted.” Erin also shares, “Lisa has trained people to do amazing things and has done amazing races, Ironmans for example, and is a beast, but in a way that is humble and calculated through preparation.”
This past fall, when Lisa’s sister, her best friend, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, Lisa decided to close her studio of 7 years to be with her sister and her niece. She showed up, ready to help, she thought she had time. Devastatingly, time was not on their side and Lisa’s sister passed away shortly thereafter. Lisa shared that her tribe, the women of ‘Inspire’, are her inspiration. They are the dream team that helps her stay strong and stay INSPIRED. Lisa’s former studio, ‘Inspire’, was a welcoming and nurturing place where women of all ages were provided the opportunity to feel empowered and love their bodies. This is where the magic happened, where women joined collectively to lift each other and continue to do so.
Lisa, you light our fire! You’re an amazing soul with vision and compassion and one incredible Viva Babe!
