    Lisa ran and taught aerobics classes in 1997-98, but struggled with “Skinny Fat”. She discovered resistance training and more importantly, Right Nutrition in late 1998 which led her into the sport of Natural Body Building. She won awards in three shows and had the privilege of judging several shows her own. Lisa continues to run, cycle, lift weights 2-3 times a week and train as a cyclist to maintain a “toned” and functionally strong body at 53 years old. She founded Your Personal Best Training Studio in 1999, is a mother of two daughters and is helping others to achieve their personal best!

    Certified Tai Chi Instructor

    Interests Are:  

    Away from YPB, I work on growing my Norwex business and I enjoy gardening, reading, meeting with friends and book club members, doing (beginning) yoga, and creating pottery.  I always thought “throwing pottery” (on a wheel) looked like fun so I took a couple of classes last fall, and I fell in love with it.  I haven’t had much time to work on it since Christmas, but I plan to get back into it very soon to keep those creative juices flowing.

    My husband and I love music and have been working our way through an (unwritten) “bucket list” of performers we want to see “live” before they stop touring.   In the last year, we’ve seen America, John Mellencamp/Carlene Carter/Emmylou Harris, (my all-time fav) James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King’s show “Beautiful,” and Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie (of Fleetwood Mac).  Later this year, we’re going to see Diana Krall.

    Cathy’s Strengths:

    • Loves to learn; energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence.
    • Has the ability to analyze information and approach things in a calm manner.
    • Diplomatic and likes to communicate in an appropriate way.
    • Can discuss issues tactfully while cultivating a friendly environment.
    • Looks for ways to make things work without taking unnecessary risks.
