I've been working with Liz for nearly a year now. And she has helped me through a couple different phases in my life. When we first met, she coached me with a custom program to my lowest body fat % (which was the goal). I never felt so healthy - and was ready for a tri I planned to compete in. Then the gears shifted when I became pregnant. Liz coached me through the entire pregnancy - and I can honestly say it's because of her that I've had a relatively easy time of it. Staying fit while pregnant is very important, but you need to be careful. Liz knew just what to do. She has both the medical & fitness knowledge to keep me & baby safe and in shape. That knowledge applies to everything - whether you are recovering from an injury, have imbalances in your body, or have aches/pains and don't know why. I plan to continue working with Liz as I enter mommy-hood, and would highly recommend her to anyone. Here custom programs are top notch and her workouts are always fun/interesting. Even after a year, I look forward to seeing her every week.Sep 20, 2016
Liz is a consummate professional who has as much knowledge, skills and experience as she does kindness, warmth and understanding. Her sharp attention to form and detail, in addition to her use of training informed by current research, has helped establish and sustain my trust in her. I came to Liz after experiencing life threatening spinal injury for which I needed invasive surgery. With her help, I have been able to rebuild strength, mobility, stamina, and most importantly, the self-confidence needed to return to an active, healthy lifestyle.Sep 12, 2016Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Not only am I a personal trainer, but I am also a PhD researcher in the field of Exercise Physiology. I am currently conducting my doctoral research in the culturally rich city of San Francisco. My research interests include assessing athletic readiness, injury prevention, blood-flow restricted exercise, and body composition. In addition to collaborating on research and philanthropy projects, I am also teaching several undergraduate courses at the University of Hawaii's department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When hiring a personal trainer, make sure you have personalities that work well together. You may like everything about their credentials, but if you don't feel comfortable or motivated when working with them, you won't enjoy the experience. You will be spending a lot of time with your trainer, make sure you like them!
