BIO.

Liz is currently pursuing her PhD in Exercise Physiology and is the co-leader of San Francisco's The North Face Mountain Athletics training program. She has invested a great deal of time examining the science behind exercise and injury and believes that fitness is being able to move the body in all of the ways it was meant to move. Her philosophy is to use peer-reviewed scientific research when designing her clients’ unique fitness programs.

As a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), Liz has the education and experience to prevent, treat and rehabilitate injuries. Her program design incorporates corrective exercise and functional movement in order to allow your body to move the way it was intended to move. Whether your goal is to increase your vertical jump height, decrease joint pain, or simply be able to keep up with your kids, she will design a program to help you reach your goals. If working with athletes has taught her anything, it is that exercise should be fun! It is important to enjoy your workout. She takes your entire unique personality into consideration before developing a program specific to your goals; no two programs are alike.Liz can often be found indulging her creative side as an actor, painter and musician, but is happiest when helping others.  She is passionate about encouraging young women to confidently embrace every opportunity to nourish their best selves.
