Growing up in West Texas, Risa has always been an avid fitness and outdoors enthusiast. She participated in sports throughout her childhood playing competitive tennis up through high school where she obtained a state "super champ" rating. Risa took her first Megaformer class in 2011 and was immediately hooked onto Pilates and Lagree Fitness. Within her first few classes she noticed the positive changes it had on her body were unlike any other workout she had done. An avid client and believer in the workout, she was motivated to share her experiences with others and pursued instructing. In 2013, Risa earned her Pilates certification through Peak Pilates and was trained and certified in Lagree Fitness under Sebastian Lagree.
As a client turned instructor, Risa uses her experiences to motivate and inspire her clients to dig deeper, push harder and have fun to make the most of their 50 minutes. She hopes you will leave her class feeling strong, energized and smiling! When not instructing, Risa can be found with her two children, riding her horse, on the tennis court, enjoying the outdoors and spending time with friends.
