Lisa was born and raised in Northern Canada, moved to Southern California as a teenager, and has never looked back. She absolutely loves the laid-back California lifestyle. After suffering with severe back problems for many years that included back surgery in her mid-20s, in 2008 Lisa discovered Lagree Fitness. After 6 weeks of regular attendance, her decade-old back problems disappeared! She was an immediate convert. She and her husband Dean decided to bring the incredible benefits of Lagree Fitness to San Diego. They opened their first studio in 2009, and thus CORE40 was born. In Lisa’s view, nothing is more true than the company’s slogan – Health is wealth.® When she is not working, Lisa enjoys traveling, hiking Torrey Pines, and spending time with her husband and 3-year old daughter, Viviana.

Favorite CORE40 exercises: French Twist (for the challenge) and Escalator Lunge (for the glutes)
