Testimonials

I love working with Lisa, she's just amazing and I'm seeing amazing results! Her studio isn't filled with a bunch of machines; she teaches you how to gain strength through a variety of methods, Pilates, TRX, elastic bands and bodyweight.  She trains you to think outside the box, standing next to the box, and even on top of the box!  Lisa's style is easy going, with just the right amount of push and encouragement.  She challenges you, but makes sure that you aren't going beyond your limits.  She is very knowledgeable about all things regarding health and wellness!  Lisa has made me stronger both physically and mentally!
Kellie
When I started at Body Potential Fitness I wasn't  sure that I belonged in a gym at my age. Lisa quickly put my mind at ease! She listened to what my concerns and goals were then designed a personal program. I have been amazed at my progress. Not only do I see myself reaching my goals but also progressing far beyond what I ever expected. I would recommend Body Potential Fitness to anyone; no matter their age!
Lynn
At Body Potential Fitness, there are no quick fixes. She’s got a whole body approach and works extensively on core and balance issues as well. She’s nice but firm and helps push you to do more than you think you can accomplish without the “boot camp” approach. Lisa works with you on making a customized plan that’s right for you.  It’s about integrating healthy habits and fitness into your lifestyle. I’ve enjoyed my journey and I highly recommend Lisa and Body Potential Fitness to anyone looking to make a lifestyle change.

Gary and I envisioned that our retirement would include lots of traveling and spending time with loved ones.  We finally had the time and money to make a big trip to Europe, but our health was starting to be a problem.  We both have arthritis, and our aches and pains were making it hard to walk very much.  We worried that we might be able to get to Europe, but not able to get around well enough to see the sights once we got there.  Our chiropractor suggested working with Lisa.  At the beginning our goals were to be able to move around enough and have stamina enough to enjoy our trip.  These goals were accomplished with Lisa’s help, encouragement, and guidance! As we continued to make progress, other things started to happen as well.  More energy, less weight, and a shared sense of accomplishment became unexpected side effects.  Although we see Lisa separately, we enjoy joking with each other about “how Lisa tried to kill me today!” More importantly, we are able to share our joy and pride when we are able to do something we had not been able to do before. Making fitness a part of our lives give us something to share and a new, more active vision for our retirement years.
Susan and Gary
We definitely have fun working out together and Lisa challenges us individually and together. Our goals were the same, to improve our overall strength, improve our health and ability to do the things we love. We have been with Body Potential Fitness for 5 years and every week our workouts change and motivate. We never thought we would hate to miss a workout class.
Susan and Arlon
From the moment I met Lisa Short, I knew she was a person that could help me achieve new fitness goals and also the one that would help change my life for the better.  During my training sessions with Lisa, I have been challenged and never bored.  She has taught me a great deal about fitness and adopting healthy habits. She makes working out fun and inspires me to reach new goals, which is what it is all about for me. I have been very impressed by her passion to help clients, her knowledge, and her ability to connect with each client to help meet their fitness goals. Lisa is very caring and attentive to what each client needs, what their limits are, and how far she can push them. She encourages and motivates me to do better, she makes sure to check in often during the workout, and she knows how much each one of her clients are capable of.
Lisa V
We have been married for 52 years! We have both just finished some very challenging health issues and we know that exercise is a very important part of the recovery process. It is great working with Lisa! She perceives the individual needs of each of us and working out together helps us to encourage each other and be accountable.
Gene and Dorothy
Thank you Lisa for keeping me motivated! Not only have I lost the weight and kept it off, but being healthy & exercising is now a major part of my life!
