Meet our November Client of the Month – Lisa L.!  Lisa has been a client of our Small Group Training Program for a couple of years.  She joined after completing treatment for breast cancer.  She has worked hard to build up[ her strength and push through any challenges that come her way.


Read on to hear more about Lisa’s experience at Wild.


How did you first hear about Wild Workouts & Wellness?

First I was looking for a gym close to work and home to minimize my excuses to not go. I also wanted to find a place that felt like a good fit for me and my goals in getting back in to shape.  And lastly, on my first visit I really loved the trainers and how welcoming existing clients were.

Do you have a favorite exercise? What do you like about it?

I really enjoy dead lifts for the strength aspect it’s fun to see my progression.  As of late I’m also really enjoying warrior III pose as a modification for some of the regular exercises, it been a fun new challenge!

Least favorite? What don’t you like about it?

Mountain climbers…they just kick my butt.

What achievements are you most proud of?

Not sure it is an achievement but the turning point for me, as someone that historically avoided/hated gyms, was when I found myself booking classes at the end of a stressful day.  I knew getting my butt in the gym would be good to decrease my stress and really improve my mood.  I understood this on paper but to really feel it in practice was an aha moment and sort of empowering.

Why Wild? What do you like most about Wild Workouts and Wellness?

Many of the same reasons I picked Wild are the reasons I stay.  I joined the gym after going through treatment for breast cancer and was really starting at ground zero to build up strength after treatment.  Wild really is a judgement free space and the trainers really care and meet you where you are at where ever that might be.

What advice would you give to other Wild peeps?

Keep being your lovely selves.  This is such a great community of people that I am so glad I found.

Do you have a favorite song or type of music for working out? 

I am really digging a nice 90’s mash up lately.

What are some challenges or goals you are currently working on?

My nemesis is a simple one right now, I’d like to keep making progress to do a proper push-up.  Outside of that, I just want to keep pushing myself to keep incrementing up and building strength.
