“As a personal trainer, Lisa gets it! Since I started training with GreenNote Fitness, I really look forward to my workouts. Lisa creates a variety of workouts based on my unique needs and abilities and pays special attention to ensure proper form so I do not get injured. Her desire to help me on my journey to healthy living gives me the push to steadily improve. I have even noticed improvements in my golf swing! I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to improve their health, fitness, and quality of life.”

“I began training with Lisa over three years ago. I was looking for personalized training that would help me with my goals. Lisa helped (and continues to help) by educating me about nutrition, food choices, and shedding a few unwanted pounds. I am now at my goal weight and continue to maintain it. What I like about Lisa is her kind and encouraging approach. She continues to push me to the next level. It has been a very rewarding experience. I would recommend Lisa to people who need an improvement in their balance, weight, muscle mass, and/or nutrition.” ~ Susan K.
“I was stressed out, gaining weight and simply not talking care of myself when I started training with Lisa Schaffer. My initial goal was to shed 10 pounds prior to a family wedding in June and to gain strength to keep up with my new grandchild. Well, I got much more! Lisa is a positive spirit that has guided and pushed me passed what I thought I was even capable of. She has helped me understand the connection between my body and mind and the impact that nutrition has on both. I appreciate all that Lisa does to make my training sessions productive and enjoyable.” ~ Donna K
“I have been working with Lisa for over 3 years, and it’s been a great partnership. The best part about training with Lisa is her consistency: our focus is always on proper techniques. She will describe and then demonstrate each exercise before watching me do one or two reps, and then make adjustments if necessary. Lisa’s work ethic never wavers as we strive for excellent form in all exercises. I have never suffered an injury under her watch; my back and core are stronger than ever, providing me support for everything I do. Through working out with Lisa, my shoulders and knees feel better now than they did ten years ago, and my arms and legs are strong. I am confident with and understand my body’s abilities, both during workout and in everyday life. Lisa’s attitude always conveys positive energy, no matter what frame of mind I bring in that day. Sometimes, when I might be struggling with that last set, Lisa will even sing or dance to get me to push through, inserting an encouraging word right when I need it the most. I always leave a workout with Lisa feeling better than when I entered, and workouts are not easy. She creates an individualized plan for me, working different muscle groups each session and using a wide variety of exercises. Results-wise, we monitor goals and check in periodically: since I began working with Lisa, I am stronger, more fit, more disciplined, smarter about my body, and more inspired. Lisa trains me holistically, considering not just my body, but also my mental and emotional well-being, what’s happening in my world at the time, and how I might develop healthy responses: food, rest, meditation, exercise. Lisa has the ability to coax more endurance and strength and effort out of me than I ever knew was there – and those attributes flow into all other areas of my life now, too. ~ Maggie C.
What are your goals? Let's get started!
"I am one of Lisa’s remote training clients; I live in Washington State. For many years I held a local gym membership. But after many, many years of going to the same type of place to do the same type of training, a couple of years ago I finally found myself completely bored and uninspired, and quit going altogether. Yet I was also very aware that the fitness and health routines I practiced in these midlife years (and beyond)
would definitely determine my mobility, health and ability to enjoy my life not only now but as I age. So I needed to find a new training solution. I had considered working out on my own in my home, but quite frankly didn’t have the knowledge of home fitness methods or the discipline to work out at home without some sort of accountability built into my routine.
Lisa thoroughly evaluated my health and fitness goals and put together a very unique home program for me. Each week she emails me a physical training plan that incorporates the whole body but includes a varied mix of exercises to hold my interest while keeping all of my muscles engaged. She develops and posts short YouTube videos to demonstrate new exercises. During our once-a-week Skype session (accountability!) we review last week’s plan, and then Lisa walks me through the details of the upcoming week’s routine. Then she does a thorough analysis of my recent nutritional practices and overall health, and provides thoughtful, well-researched guidance as well as solutions for me to explore. I’m constantly impressed by her overall knowledge, as well as her diligence in pursuing continuing education opportunities in order to provide clients the most current information and appropriate advice.
This program has been very successful for me. I’ve noticed great improvement in my muscle tone, stamina and overall health; the program syncs well with my personal lifestyle; and, best of all, it never gets boring! I highly recommend Lisa’s services to anyone looking for an outstanding fitness and health consultant. ~ Tina S.
"What I like most about personal training with Lisa is how she customizes it specifically for my goals. I love to ride dirt bikes which requires strength, agility, and balance. Through specially designed sessions, I have been able to improve in those areas and enjoy my dirt bike riding even more! " ~ Jim K.
" As I was experiencing several life changes, Lisa helped me set a clear path for my emotional, spiritual and physical journey. I appreciate her individualized approach geared towards my specific needs. She helped me set and achieve my goals so that I could be the best version of me! Thanks to Lisa, I am in a better place both phsyically and mentally. I recommended Lisa to many friends and family" ~ Beth D.
" When I found Lisa at GreenNote Fitness, I was out of shape and struggling to lose weight and fully participate in all of the activities I love! Lisa was understanding from the beginning. She listened to my goals, and worked with me to develop strength, balance, and a new love for working out. When faced with finding a personal trainer to support me, I wanted someone who understood my goals, understood how to support and motivate me to make changes, and who wasn’t judgmental. Lisa met all of these needs. Through her face to face support and through her newsletters, I have found myself willing to try new challenges and make lifestyle changes, including how I view food and nutrition. Overall, Lisa has provided me with the support and encouragement I needed to make the changes necessary to see the results I wanted." ~ Patti D.
