Training Notes for your FitCation

Each FitCation site will have its own challenges, so be sure to read the notes below to ensure you choose an experience that matches your abilities.

Amalfi Coast FitCation


In a word: Stairs!

FitCation guests need to feel comfortable with the ability to manage multiple flights of stairs per day. A short walk to the beach and water taxi is 250 steps down from the main road. Hiking requirements: 3-5 miles on varied terrain, moderately strenuous level, but at your own pace. The breathtaking landscape of this area is filled with countless opportunities for stair workouts for those who want a little extra burn.  

Coming in 2020! – dates TBD

A note from your trainer

I have trained athletes from middle schoolers to octogenarians. My clients have included a triathlete training for a half Ironman; a 66-year-old running his first half-marathon; a woman with a progressive neurological disease fighting to remain ambulatory; people who have never moved, and people who never stop moving. My passion is empowering each person to find his or her maximal effort, without comparison or judgment.

Our classes are designed to enhance your FitCation experience and balance the effort for the day. While targeted at a moderate fitness level, I will offer ample opportunities to scale up or scale back to meet your individual requirements. To ensure you each receive personal attention, I will be available daily during my office hours to answer questions or troubleshoot your concerns.

What Clients say

I have been seeing Lisa for about 5 years and find her incredibly patient and encouraging. I have a physical disability and am sure I’m not the most exciting person to train, but Lisa is always cheery, upbeat, and extremely encouraging. She does a lot of continuing education courses and brings new ideas to our sessions which are never the same. Lisa has a wealth of references/referrals in the health and wellness space if you are interested. She truly seems to love what she does!
— Andrea K • Berkeley, CA
I have trained with Lisa for many years and can’t think of anyone better to lead a ‘Fitcation’ trip. Lisa is a superb trainer, is up to date on any and all new developments in the world of personal training, and is especially good at tailoring a program to an individual’s needs. Beyond that, she is someone with a broad range of interests who understands, enjoys and gets the most out of travel. In short, she is uniquely suited to provide the kind of balance between fitness activities and travel activities that will make for a wonderful and memorable trip.
— Larry K • Oakland, CA

She wants to help you do the things you want to do and function the way you want to function.
Workouts are tailored to your capability and focus on what’s right for you.
Lisa is very focused on how you respond to each new exercise and works relentlessly to ensure you perform the exercise to receive the maximum benefit and prevent injury. I’m healthier because of her.
— Danny M • Lafayette, CA
Lisa is a phenomenal trainer, motivator, and coach. She helps me understand and articulate my fitness goals, translates those goals into specific plans, and calibrates the program to push me toward consistent progress while keeping me engaged. Her combination of enthusiasm and technical expertise is remarkable, and exactly what I need.
