Master Pilates Trainer
Lisa began her journey a decade ago on a whim when she bought a Groupon Pilates class in Chicago. Little did she know how transformative Pilates would be, and the effect that Pilates would have on her life and her hundreds of students since. After that first class, she felt lighter and found muscles she never knew existed. She knew then that life had presented a challenge. She learned in the first class the “body awareness” that gave her a sense of space, that “small controlled precise movements” linked body and mind, and that true fitness is about more than building muscle. Pilates transformed her life. She left a high profile career as a successful commodities broker to give back to the Pilates community what she'd received. She now works daily to help Pilates transform the lives of her clients. Lisa believes in education and learning, which led her to being an instructor and educator today. She earned her bachelors degree in Marketing from DePaul University. Lisa completed her Pilates certification through the PhysicalMind Institute and is also PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) certified. She is a Master Trainer with Club Pilates where she loves educating those interested in becoming certified Pilates Instructors. She loves a balance between teaching group classes and private sessions.
