Emily Evans, Personal Trainer, Functional Aging Specialist

Emily graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and obtained her personal trainer certification from the American Counsel on Exercise. In college she helped train athletes to improve strength and agility and educated them on proper lifting form and injury prevention. After college she was a trainer at a physical therapy clinic where she worked with a broad range of individuals from an elderly patient with chronic back pain to a young athlete post knee surgery.

She always had a passion for fitness and loves being able to help others understand that it’s never too late to get started with a healthy and active lifestyle. Working in a physical therapy clinic helped her see that a sedentary lifestyle can lead to pain, surgery, and medication. You only get one body and taking the time to take care of it is the best thing you can do for yourself! Her goal is to design fun and effective workouts for my clients and to educate them on a healthy lifestyle so they can continue do all the things they love whether that’s traveling, hiking 14ers, or keeping up with grandkids.

As a trainer she is constantly learning. She loves to try new workouts and different forms of exercise to build her knowledge and to keep things new and fresh for her clients. Her current challenge is learning to cook and to finding new and simple recipes that are healthy and delicious. In her words: “My career is a constant journey and I love every moment of it!”

Lisa Choi, Personal Trainer, Senior Specialist, Corrective Exercise Certified. 

Lisa​ ​was never an athlete, not even close to fitness as growing up. She still remembers the nervousness rushing down her vein when she wanted to join a GYM…after 50 times of driving to the parking lot, she decided to get out of the car and walk in to the gym!
That was the best decision she ever made in her life!

Lisa got her PT Certification and Group Fitness Certification in 2007 in California.She started with Group Fitness Training, but then she focused more with individuals and she realized that many people out there are scared to try new things or getting out of comfort zone. That, lead them to quit on fitness/working out. It was their ​decision​ before their ​motivation.

Lisa’s life was always challenging confronting different culture and learning to adapt their lifestyle. That made her think that, we as human can change if we put ourselves into it. Finding that purpose in life, Lisa was able to build good vibe, good people, better decisions for her body, one step at a time… she was building the “ ​MOTIVATION”!

Then she was able to push and thrive to reach little goal at a time.
Now, Lisa is a Trail Ultra Runner with passion to help people​ ​to reach their goal and bring more smile into their life!!

Lisa is 100% single mom of 2 kids with 2 jobs, her goal is to share how her life changed adding fitness into her daily life. Without fitness, Lisa wouldn’t be able to fight this far as single mom. Lisa’s day starts with morning runs with her dog (her pacer) and on the weekends she will take off to a trailhead for a long run~ She calls it “meditation time” 😉

That’s the beauty of Colorado! (she says) Not forgetting as mom, she loves cooking too 😉
She will pick one day of the week for food prepping for the week, and that’s another meditation time for her.
Time to time she likes to visit local breweries for a good beer and run! 😉
