Lisa’s Success Stories
In 2012 I started doing archery and quickly fell in love with the sport. In 2013 during a regional championship, I felt immense pain in my shoulder blade. Initially, only while doing archery, but quickly progressed to almost constant pain.
After multiple years of trying everything – going to doctors, having tests, injections, physical therapy, medical messages, acupuncture and a total of 4 surgeries to repair tears and reattach my shoulder blade muscles. I was still in pain and my shoulder was not right.
I knew something needed to change. At 44 years old, I had lost function and strength in my arm that was affecting my everyday life. I started working with Personal Trainer, Lisa Timberlake. Progress was slow as my movement was limited, and we restricted workouts to my lower body.
Lisa was great! She was able to work around these limitations and structure the workout, depending on my current pain levels and capabilities, while keeping the workouts varied and fun.
There is still a noticeable lack of strength on my left side, and some arm movements don’t go as planned, but I can do things in the Center I never thought possible. I am back in the pool swimming, and have slowly started archery again. Also I have been watching what I eat and I have lost 60lbs in the last 18 months, and feel a lot healthier.
The progress so far has been tremendous. I am excited to see what I will accomplish next.
I have been fortunate to have Lisa as my trainer for almost two years. She is professional, knowledgeable, and focused on helping me achieve my fitness goals. Lisa makes every session challenging. She motivates me to do better, yet she respects my limits and how far to challenge me for maximum results. I am truly thankful Lisa is my trainer. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a serious, very pleasant, and dedicated personal trainer.
Lisa is absolutely the best personal trainer I ever have worked with. Whether you are looking to run a marathon or slim down, trying just to improve your strength or your overall health, Lisa has the background and commitment to help you succeed. I rapidly improved my strength, flexibility, balance, speed, and core stabilization with her innovative training techniques. I have never gotten results like this from any other trainer. I credit this to Lisa’s understanding of the science of personal training as well as the science of motivation. She is very caring and attentive to my training needs. She is thoroughly prepared at every session. Lisa loves to celebrate your victories, whether they are on the Fitness Floor, at a racing event, or in life. I give her my highest rating. I will happily continue to train with her to meet my personal goal of running an Ironman triathlon in the fall.
