She knows that an exciting atmosphere is one that will help to keep clients on track with their health and fitness goals.

From top 40’s hits, to hard core rock, Shaylyn’s playlists will keep everyone engaged and motivated to keep moving! Come sweat it out with Shaylyn. Keep an eye on the schedule though, as she only makes random sub “cameo” appearances!

Lisa found herself on her way to healthy living, losing weight & getting stronger. Then she had one of those "lightbulb" moments to take her health & fitness journey to the next level by becoming certified as a spin instructor and has been teaching regularly for the past 3 years. As of this year, Lisa became a level 2 spin instructor with hope to become a master level 3 instructor by 2017.

This year Lisa completed the TRX Suspension Training Course and is very excited in learning as much as she can about TRX. Lisa has also completed the ACE Personal Trainer Course through OSU to help her be a better instructor. Her biggest accomplishment to date has been raising her 3 kids with her husband with the knowledge that she is a positive role model for her family since deciding to be proactive about her health & fitness journey.
