    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!

    Cathy Hart

    Elite Fitness Professional at Your Personal Best Training Studio
    Bachelors Degree from the University of North Texas with Two Masters Degrees from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi
    FAS – Certified Functional Aging Specialist; AHA – CPR 

    Certified Tai Chi Instructor

    Specializing In: Group Training, HIIT Training, Progressing Beginning Clients, Strength and Cardio Circuits, Fun and Functional Training, Tai Chi

    Interests Are:  

    Away from YPB, I work on my Norwex business and spend time baking, gardening, reading, visiting with friends and book club members, and doing (beginning) yoga and various crafts, including pottery, mosaics, embroidery and needlepoint.  I have a wide range of interests and like to keep my 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.   Before COVID put a halt to our plans, we managed to see several of our ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s favorites, including America, John Mellencamp/Carlene Carter/Emmylou Harris, (my all-time fav) James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King’s show “Beautiful,” Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie (of Fleetwood Mac), Alison Krauss, and Diana Krall. We have tickets to see James Taylor again (did I mention he’s my all-time favorite?) with Jackson Browne as soon as they are able to resume the tour that was canceled last year because of COVID.

    In addition to all of the above, my life is focused on my husband, my daughter (in California), and my first grandchild, who is expected to arrive in June. I also am actively involved in the care of my stepdad, and I love spending time with my two 4-legged babies and assisting with several activities at my church.

    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.

    Jasmine Gamez

    Administrator/ Client Happiness Specialist

    TAMUCC Business Intern – Majoring in Sociology, Minoring in Communication

    Interests Are:
    Aside from Your Personal Best Training Studio, I am a student here at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. I love to learn new things and incorporate them into my daily routine, which relates to my major in Sociology. Sociology has helped me stay open-minded and appreciate all the small yet big things life has to offer. I hope for this major to take me and my career on the path where I can help children find forever homes and better the Foster Care System.

    First working here at YPB, it felt natural as I as well love to stay active and workout. I enjoy playing volleyball and softball. I go to the gym 5x out of the week. Not only is it a way to stay healthy and active but it is also my stress reliever. Especially with school, work, family, and social life, the gym and working out are what I look forward to every day.

    I am also a woman of faith and enjoy spending time with my God. When I am not working, in school, or at the gym, you can either find me soaking up the sun and studying my faith. I also love to challenge myself, so finding a new hobby to master is a way that helps me express the creative side of my mind. For example, I’ve recently learned to bake and decorate cakes!

    Jasmine’s Strengths:

    • Loves to learn; energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence.
    • Dependable and easy to trust.
    • Can work long hours, without burning out, understanding what it takes to achieve “Your Personal Best.”
    • Very loyal and consistent in dealing with other individuals.
