I believe all movement is exercise and that the key to success is through functional activities that you can actually enjoy! Working as a team, starting out slow, and adding things in small, bite size chunks makes for lasting changes and powerful self-healing. My personal training journey began almost a decade ago while receiving my Bachelor of Science in Health Science from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. I worked with a physician referral program and its ability to alleviate symptoms and reduce or even eliminate medications in both my clients and myself inspired me to pursue exercise as medicine. I started my fitness career with the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Certified Personal Trainer with additional trainings in Nutritional Counseling and Chronic Pain Education.
I moved to Portland last year to study for my doctorate in naturopathic medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine. I am currently learning about the musculoskeletal system in school including body work techniques like massage therapy. For my own fitness, I train as a dancer and travel to other states and countries as a professional character performer in immersive theater. I have an ever evolving self-care practice in order to accomplish my goals despite living with a chronic illness. My life experiences give me the strength and empathy to help you find your own fitness passions!
Lianne is available for 15 minutes before and after her 4:30 - 5:00 p.m. Strength Training group on Thursdays for fitness consultations. Consultations are on a walk-in basis but can also be scheduled online at goSTATZ.com. These sessions can give us a chance to see if exercise prescription is right for you and if we make a good team! I am happy to help point you in the right direction whichever that may be! Established clients can still use this time for quick check in's on progress or help with form. Everyone is welcome to come and ask me any questions!
