I met Lisa during my first contest prep for my first men's physique competition. Lisa made me feel so comfortable while showing me proper posing and techniques I'd need before stepping on stage. Her confidence in me made me shine bright on stage.

I started with Lisa at Elite
Fitness in January of 2016.
I have been competing for
the last 5 years in figure,
this season I wanted to
try my luck at a crossover between figure and physique. From day one Lisa has been a huge help with my posing, she has found creative ways to show me how to flex specific muscles during certain work outs. This has helped both my physique and figure routines. More importantly, for me, Lisa has kept the sessions focused on me and my goals rather than who is doing what in the bodybuilding world, which has helped me maintain a more positive and focused attitude during preparation. She has kept a positive outlook on all phases of preparation and competition but maintains strong work ethic and it shows through the attitudes and nature of each of her competitors. I have enjoyed my sessions with Lisa and look forward to seeing the finish product come June 2016!

I just started training with Lisa at the end of the 2016 summer. Best choice I have made for training and competition prep. Not only is she a great trainer, she is also a great competition and posing coach and really knows her stuff! I highly recommend Lisa Thomas at Elite Fitness for all your training or competition needs! The atmosphere is great
and upbeat with a
variety of class times.

I've been training with Lisa for 5 years now. I love the atmosphere, the variety of classes and the direction that Lisa has given me.
I love the early morning
classes that allow me to
get my workout in and
keep my crazy work
schedule. The group
environment helps to
keep me focused and
pushes me to work
harder. I love Elite Fitness!!

"I have been a fitness enthusiast for over 25 years and occasionally need a change. I've worked with Lisa in group exercise classes, 1:1 personal training and used her customized workout routines. What I like about Lisa:
-Customized to your fitness level, personal needs and workout schedule.
-Uses compound exercises: Challenging, efficient, effective, and you'd never think of them yourself.
-Her years of experience is evident in her approach.
-Workouts are fun, functional, and they push you in good ways.
-She gives you exercises you can do with a minimum of equipment, and that is adaptable when you can't get to the gym."
