About Lisa

Lisa has 35 plus years in the fitness industry, training all ages and levels.  She has experience in the rehabilitation industry as a physical therapy assistant at the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital of Santa Barbara where she created the first group fitness program for those recovering from a stroke. After years of teaching group fitness and running, knee injuries side-lined her from high impact activities and she switched to Pilates where she was certified through IMX Pilates, including mat, reformer and finished coursework in Advanced Spinal Health.

In 2009, Lisa was diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Syndrome, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease and was unable to walk more than a mile without being in chronic pain. She learned about Egoscue Postural training for chronic pain and interned at Motion Unlimited the local Egoscue clinic and learned how to change her posture to mitigate symptoms in her own life. Today she is feeling great, and can relate to anyone who has been in chronic pain.

Lisa received a Postural Alignment Specialist 2 (PAS2) Certification through the Egoscue University and now combines the functional fitness of Egoscue with Pilates and a depth of personal experience to create ProMotion Fitness. She has completed her pickleball certification through International Pickleball Teaching Professionals Association (IPTPA) and is the head Pickleball Pro at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club. She regularly teaches clinics and private lessons locally and has also leads Pickleball Tours in Spain and plans to do more international teaching and coaching.

ProMotion Fitness offers a unique combination of Lisa’s wealth of experience, her athletic background and years of rehabilitative health.
