Today, she's an athlete and nutrition guru strong enough to lift a full-grown, muscular man over her shoulders. But in 2007, Coach Lisa suffered from a variety of health ailments, including obesity. Left "being prodded, poked, tested, [and] re-tested" in the hospital after complications ended a pregnancy, Lisa, then 36, knew that something had to change. "My instinct told me that if food could make us sick," she explains, "then it stood to reason that food could heal us too," so she set out on a wellness journey in honor of the family she loves.
Along with her husband Coach Bob and Katie "Danger" Schmitz, Lisa helps clients of Access Life Fitness make life changes of their own. The team's methods are comprehensive and varied, ranging from fitness classes and in-school programs to nutrition counseling and personal training. Lisa even bakes treats and whips up condiments with Paleo-friendly ingredients, helping to stock home pantries with healthy comestibles.
Judging by the name, it's easy to assume Look Great Today Inc. only focuses on the outside. The beautifying hot spot does receive rave reviews for its work in body contouring and skin rejuvenation, including treatments such as the acne facial, which helps unclog pores and control breakouts, and the young skin facial, which promotes a more youthful appearance for all skin types. However, the staff pay just as much attention to their clients' health and wellness. To do so, they carry botanical-rich Arbonne products that include protein shakes, healthy chocolates, and herbal detox teas, helping clients match their inner glow with their outer radiance.
