Q/A with Lisa
Can you tell me 3 or 4 of your favorite things to do?
I love to dance (surprise), waterski, see live music, play soccer, travel, hike, go to the beach, and generally live it up. Life is meant to be lived!
My favorite place to eat:
For dinner, drinks, brunch, or lunch, my go to spot is Capitol Cider, because they are entirely gluten free and so delicious. The cinnamon rolls, fried cheese curds, beet salad, and steak frites are my favs. (I work out so that I can eat all of this yummy food!) Plus, everyone knows me by name there- it is my home away from home. I also love Eve Fremont, Octo Sushi, and Chavez (all great spots if you have celiac/hate the gluten).
Do you remember when you started our classes and why?
Years ago, my friend Kristen suggested that I join TFL. I was really scared because I was overweight, out of shape, recovering from ACL surgery, and never thought I could lift weights, do burpees, or keep up with everyone else. She continued to ask me for an entire year! Then, guess what happened? I attended, thought I was going to die during the workout and was super duper sore for days after the workout; but, I decided to sign up for the six week challenge. After I committed, I saw immediate results, felt empowered, learned more about my eating habits, and became totally addicted to TFL. I am grateful to Kristen for her persistent encouragement.
What are some health and fitness goals you have achieved since being here?
I want to be fit and healthy so that I can continue to do all of the things that I love to do. The Fitness Lab has allowed me to be fit and healthy, and have fun doing it! I love the community, and I love being pushed to my physical limits regularly. My only suggestion is that you really need to get a disco ball 😉
I heart TFL!
What is a quote that you live by?
Work hard, play hard! (It is so trite, but also so true.)
