"I have been working out with Alisa for a number of years and am a big fan. I went through a tough shoulder surgery in 2018 and Alisa worked with me privately and in small groups to get me back in the gym, and regain my strength and mobility much quicker than my MD or physical therapist thought possible. Her workouts are challenging and fun, and she brings a level of professionalism and thoughtfulness to her work that are unmatched in my experience. Alisa is terrific!" -Rick Koven
"Since I’ve started working out with Alisa, both my strength and stamina has improved and I have a better sense of proper body alignment. The benefit carries over to just about every part of my life outside the gym. I look forward to my sessions with Alisa. Our workouts include familiar exercises, as well as new and often quite challenging ones. Sessions are never boring. I feel that Alisa has a good sense of what I am capable of and encourages me to work to my potential." -Melinda Buhl
"I've learned what kinds of exercises help me stay strong and agile without risking injury. In the long run, I know this will help me stay active as I grow older. My posture, something I've struggled with for many years, has really improved with Alisa's guidance. I trust her because she understands the mechanics of the movements and isn't just following a list of exercises. Alisa is a joy to work with because she's upbeat and takes the time to make sure that you're learning the movements in a way that doesn't risk injury. She plans sessions that cover a mix of muscle groups and are never boringly repetitive. I've traveled and visited many other gyms but they're never as good as working with Alisa!" -Nicki Vance
"Alisa worked at helping me get back in physical shape after an injury. She was with me through a lot of life changes and eventually coached me through the whole 9 months of pregnancy. She has so much knowledge in all areas that most trainers do not have. She was able to adapt the workouts to my needs at the time, as well as support my long term goals. She's patient, but makes you work! In addition, she coached me on nutrition and overall wellness. She looks at the whole person and supports you to get to your best self. Alisa always had some piece of the workout that looked easy and yet, was so hard. She's great at coming up with things that make you work in ways that you didn't know would hurt later! Plus, she has a great sense of humor, always listens and is great at advice too. Alisa is a wellness and life coach beyond the physical training. She gives great nutrition advice and is always developing her craft. She truly excels at her career!" -Tracy B.
"I feel so much stronger all over. I have plenty of energy. I have progressed in strength, endurance and weight training over the 4 plus years of working with Alisa twice weekly. I like being challenged and I get that with Alisa. She is always very well prepared for my session and there's a lot of variety in what she asks me to do." -Karen B.
"Alisa is extremely knowledgeable and has wonderful attention to detail. She truly cares that I do exercises just right, and frequently gives me small (and sometimes big) adjustments to form. She also notices ways that I'm compensating, but am not aware of, and helps me correct those. She is so organized and puts so much thought into designing the workouts. She knows exactly what I'm capable of, and seems to know when and how to push me to get to the next level. Alisa is generous with her knowledge and expertise. Based on what I've learned in class, I've noticed how I sit or stand in really misaligned ways a lot; I've worked on those things, and my various pains have gotten better. I am so grateful to be training with Alisa. I am always excited for the workout she has for us and to learn something new." -Amy Laird
"Having a well designed and consistent workout program is essential. Alisa is knowledgable, well prepared and truly cares about her client's successes. My favorite thing about my sessions with Alisa are her thoughtful and varied composition of the workout. And, Alisa, of course!" -Steve Buhaly
"I had a lot of shoulder pain when I first went to Alisa. I knew her from school and understood her to be very knowledgeable in kinesiology. She worked with me individually and gave me rehabilitative work to do at home. Alisa also helped me with my form and movement patterns, which has really helped me, overall, in my fitness journey. I am happy to report that I am exercising now without shoulder issues. I feel really grateful that Alisa was able to train me. If she was in my area, I would still be training with her! Also, she is very thoughtful about every workout she plans. Her workouts have structure, but are always a challenge! I can't recommend Alisa enough!" -Jessica Adams
"Alisa helped me to adopt a healthier lifestyle and develop a habit of working out. In addition to helping me develop a stronger body, Alisa has great practical advice to share from how to heal sore muscles to low-calorie cocktails. Alisa kept me motivated and coming to the gym. Working with Alisa is the best investment I've made to improve my quality of life. My favorite things about my workouts with Alisa are how energized I would feel by the end. I would come in tired and stressed out, and leave feeling empowered and energized." -Kate M.
