Growing up an overweight child, Lisa lacked self-confidence and was never comfortable in her own skin.
Her Italian family mentality was always to “Eat! Eat! Eat! Pushing food non-stop”. Food is love, and we all know there is nothing better than a hearty Italian meal.
As Lisa entered high school she knew she needed to make a change and quickly decided to try her hand at school sports. After joining the basketball, volleyball and the soccer team she realized that she had an athletic bone in her body and there was no stopping her from that point forward. Not only was she starting to lose weight, but Lisa was also doing something fun and her self confidence began to shine she was becoming more than just an athlete now.
Moving forward after high school, Lisa decided to try out weight lifting. She had always heard about the benefits to weightlifting but had never stepped foot in a gym. Coming from such a sports/cardio background she knew once she tried it, it was a sport that she could easily fall in love with. And that’s exactly what happened! Until the unimaginable slapped her right in the face. Lisa blew out her knees during a heavy set of squats, sending her straight to the emergency room with 2 knee surgeries to follow. Not only did her passion end at the blink of an eye, but her long recovery from surgery didn’t leave her in the best place mentally. Her weight slowly crept back on, she became extremely lethargic and lacked motivation.
Lisa knew that if she didn’t make a change her health would only continue to go downhill bringing her back to square one.
Lisa had heard about Club Sweat Fitness through a few friends who were already members. After the little bit of push that she needed, she was through the doors and ready to start on the road to a great recovery and bringing back that inner athlete. Lisa has been a member of Club Sweat for over a year now and has come such a long way since the beginning. Lisa always walks through the door with a friendly, ready to work attitude. She brings the best kind of competition we could ever ask for. Everyone in our group classes knows, if youre partnering up with Lisa, youre in for one savage workout 🙂
