When I first met Lisa, I was just starting out on my “fitness” journey. Cardio had never been my thing and I wanted to get into Pilates. Lisa was the perfect trainer for me. Lisa’s bubbly and friendly personality immediately puts you at ease. She instantly becomes your friend and you feel like she “has your back”.
Lisa has years of experience in different areas of fitness and has an in-depth understanding of the body. Lisa will create a personal, tailor made workout to suit your body’s needs. Her personal dedication, professionalism and patience knows no bounds. Lisa is a gifted teacher- her explanations and demonstrations of each exercise make them so clear and manageable and if my body is not “there yet”, Lisa knows the exact right modification my body needs that day.
Lisa’s studio is a beautiful, clean, calm oasis and she makes scheduling classes a breeze.
I highly recommend True Focus Pilates- it will change your body, mind & life.
I began working with Lisa a little over two years ago. Since then every session has been fun, although challenging. Lisa has paid close attention to my needs and I always know that she has prepared a session that will reinforce my strengths and support my progress.
I have found Lisa to be very professional in her approach to her work and seriously concerned that she herself remain proficient in what she is teaching.
Her studio is inviting and calm. It is well equipped, clean and bright.
Lisa herself is energetic, enthusiastic and very positive. She is reassuring and encouraging. I have always felt her acceptance of and respect for my efforts during our sessions. And I always leave happy that I came.
Pilates has been a real gift in my life. For two hours every week I focus my attention on my body and really have come to appreciate how complex a system it is. I feel stronger for the effort and have enjoyed the fact that this is a noncompetitive form of exercise where everyone is a winner.

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.
True flexibility can be achieved only when all muscles are uniformly developed.
What Is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall health. Exercises are performed on a Mat and on specifically designed equipment. The Pilates system includes exercises for every part of the body and applications for every kind of activity. It works your body and your mind.
Pilates strengthens the core, improves balance, increases coordination, increases flexibility and decreases stress. Pilates is used by many athletes to improve their performance. You learn to move better so the benefits are felt in everyday life.
Who Can Do Pilates?
Anyone of any age can do Pilates! Whether you are an athlete, a mom, a young dancer or a grandparent, Pilates is for you!
What Do I Wear?
Comfortable workout clothes are worn, not too loose. No shoes are worn; sticky socks are required for sanitary and safety reasons. We do not recommend wearing a lot of jewelry, and suggest tying back long hair.
