Strength Training Class

The strength training class teaches you how to properly use free weights (dumbbells) and stability balls to build your muscle mass and tone your body. Lifting weights will NOT make you bulky AND it will help prevent osteoporosis and will make losing weight easier!

If you’re already doing some type of Cardio-respiratory work or Yoga, the Strength Training Class is a perfect complement…

Our next eight-week session begins on Tuesday, March 12 and continues through Thursday, May 2. The class will meet for one hour on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:00 AM at the CrossPoint Community (Augusta Nazarene) Church Sanctuary on 4th Street.

Class members commit to an 8-week program and the cost is $100.00 ($6.25 per class), payable in full or in two payments of $50.00 each. You may also use a credit card through PayPal.

Please contact Lisa to register ASAP. Call at 859-250-9318 or, email by clicking here.


Yoga is offered at the Augusta Art Guild on Wednesdays at 4:30 PM and at the River Community Church on Mondays at 10:00 AM with yoga Instructor, Barbara Morgan. For more information on Barbara and to sign up for class, please visit her website.

Wellness Coaching Group (NEW!)

What exactly is wellness coaching? Well, in a nutshell, a wellness coach helps you to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. In this group, you’ll benefit from the same process I use with my individual clients to help them achieve the vision of their best selves, along with the support and accountability of your fellow group members. It’s about listening to your story, helping you to discover (or remember) your priorities, to see your strengths, to understand what’s holding you back and to stay inspired to keep your promises to yourself – whether those promises are about exercise, weight loss, career or just about anything you can think of!

If you’ve been wanting to make improvements in your wellness and you just can’t seem to get on the ball or stick with your commitments, this program is definitely for you!

Join us for a fun, NO COST evening (Not scheduled at this time) from 7:00-8:30 PM at the Nazarene Church in Augusta. Learn about Wellness Coaching and how this group will work to support and inspire you. Whether you decide to commit to the group or not, you’ll leave that night with your own personal Wellness Vision, three-month promises and your first set of  weekly promises to yourself.

If you decide that the program is for you, the cost is a very reasonable $75.00 for 12 more sessions (My individual coaching clients pay $750.00 for this very same program, so this price is a steal). And, if, at the end of the program, you feel like you have made no progress, I’ll give you your money back. You really can’t lose! And, yes you can pay in three installments – by check or credit card.

I promise you, you’ll: • Get Prepared or Re-Inspired! • Sow Seeds of Change! • Grow & Nurture Your Confidence! • Harvest Happiness!

Allison Davidson of Williamsburg, VA is one of my recent individual clients and here’s what she wanted to share about her Wellness Coaching experience:

When I began working with Lisa, I felt like I was at a crossroads in my life.
For years, I allowed myself to be controlled by food – either via binge-eating or extreme dieting. Food was the primary focus of my life. My weight was out of control, although I was fortunate not to have the health issues that are often associated with obesity. Still, I hated the way I looked and the way I felt about myself. As expected, that self-loathing affected other areas of my life – my relationships, my work (or lack thereof), my purpose.

My first session with Lisa began by writing out a wellness vision – a statement that said, ‘In a perfect world, my life would look like this.’ It was the first time in a very long time, I actually had to stop and think about how I wanted my life to look. No one had ever asked me this before and I certainly hadn’t dared to ask myself. But that simple act led me to pinpoint the parts of my life that made me unhappy and helped me determine whether I had the power and ability to make changes in any of those areas.

Over the next few months, Lisa’s insightful and intuitive coaching gently pushed me forward toward the wellness vision she had helped me create. She allowed me to work at a pace that felt comfortable to me – a pace that was neither sluggish nor overly aggressive. Whenever I encountered what I perceived to be an obstacle, she would help me to see a practical solution or alternative. She never ceased to encourage me and helped me recognize positive changes even on weeks when I felt less than triumphant.

In less than a year’s time, I’ve lost more than 50 pounds with Lisa’s assistance. I’m over halfway to my final goal and have no doubt that I’ll reach it with Lisa cheering me on. Perhaps even more important, though, is that her coaching has given me a better vision of who I am as a woman, as a person. This program is far more than simply about weight loss. It is about discovering myself in way that feels true, comfortable and exciting all at once. Lisa has been the perfect guide for the journey. Every time we talk, I tell her she’s my hero!! I owe her more than she’ll ever know!     (Wow! Thanks, Allison, for those kind words!)

Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Workshop

Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Workshops combine the benefits of an innovative non-diet approach with the interaction, motivation and support of a group. In the workshop, you learn to be in charge of your eating instead of feeling out of control, how to eat the foods you love without overeating or guilt, how to increase your metabolism and how to eat healthier without depriving yourself.

*WARNING: This class is not for the faint of heart or those looking for a quick fix! It is for the woman who is FINALLY finished with dieting. The only rule in this program that you are ready to trust your own body and intuition about food! The concepts are simple AND implementing those concepts takes introspection about what is triggering your eating and the willingness to be mindful enough to make the choices that best serve you. Are you ready for a new relationship with food…and yourself?

The next eight-week Am I Hungry? workshop has not been scheduled.

I have to say that the knowledge that I gained in both of the classes (Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Workshop & An Organic Approach to Cultivating the Authentic You) is still a used/useful tool for me learning concepts that in my 60s I had not come across before and others that I relearned. They are positive and well researched tools of information, not just some hype to “get you in”. I reuse the information gained frequently.

Thank you, Maryalis! I’m glad that you’ve been able to incorporate these concepts into your daily life. :-)

I joined the Am I Hungry? class because I make chocolates and gain 20-25 pounds every year. I am close to 60 and realized it was harder to lose that weight as I got older. I needed to enjoy the chocolates without over-consumption. I have also been a dieter since my teens so I felt I needed to break that cycle, also. This program has been the answer to all my eating woes. I can eat what my body needs to function and not feel deprived.

I started the strength training class in May because a bone density test revealed osteoporosis. I’m not a big fan of prescription medication so I’m doing the strength training to avoid that. I have lost inches and feel like I’m in the best physical shape of my life. I actually enjoy the class. We have a different routine every month so it keeps from getting boring. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable about the exercises that are suitable for every physical condition, even injuries.

Thanks, Marie! You’re right about breaking the dieting cycle. The Am I Hungry? program is designed to help re-connect a person with her natural hunger rhythms, instead of relying on the rules and restrictions of a diet . And, the program helps to address some of the underlying issues around a woman’s relationship with food. I’m glad it’s been of help to you! And, also glad you’re finding benefit from the strength training class, as well. Yes, weight training is GREAT for helping to reverse osteoporosis and as we gain muscle, we also speed up our metabolism, which also aids in weight loss.
