Barb Lass: Co-owner
Fitness…athleticism, has always been an important part of my life. Competition, healthy competition has been part of my life for as long as I remember. I was always looking for that one workout, that one completely satisfying workout that I wanted to teach other people. About 10-years ago, I was introduced to Russian kettlebells. After one workout, it was what I knew I wanted to share. During my training to become certified, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This diagnosis came out of nowhere, from aggressive training one day, to debilitating pain the next. During this process, I learned about how to really treat my body. Learning how to eat right, and supplement when necessary has given me a whole new journey. I went on to become level I then level II certified through RKC.
The most important aspect of training for me is to teach everyone correct form, and keep them injury free, then watch them get more confident and stronger! The changes in your body come naturally when you learn to eat right, and put the work in the gym! We work with everyone from high school athletes to those who are retired. My favorite part of training people is to watch the “ah-ha” moments…that moment when they figure out how their body works with a particular move. Whether it be a kettlebell swing or a push-up, or a pull-up, or a deeper squat, or to touch their toes…it is so different for everyone. I am always striving to make our clients feel comfortable in our environment, and make them excited about pushing themselves to their next level. It’s not about what the scale says, it’s about being comfortable in your own skin!
I can help you reach your fitness goals by making your training sessions something you look forward to (o.k., it’s a love/hate relationship), but you will love the results!! Even as a personal trainer, I make the decision every day to maintain a healthy body. Fitness is a life changing decision…it’s is not a 30-day project! It is more fun to workout with someone than by yourself. Fitness should be fun, nutrition should not be guess work.
I strengthen the body to empower the individual…I look forward to working with you!
