Lisa Barbara

CrossFit Level II


Lisa was born and raised in San Diego, CA.   As a child and teen, Lisa was a gymnastics, soccer and running athlete.  After graduating from high school, Lisa moved to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to attend college.  In 1993, she graduated from Point Park University.

In 1995 Lisa married and started a family.  She spent the next ten years raising her sons.  Lisa has run and finished numerous half and full marathons, to include the Boston Marathon in 2005. Lisa transitioned into the fitness realm and began working as a personal trainer at a private gym.

Lisa was introduced to CrossFit in 2007 and instantly fell in love.  Lisa credits CrossFit with accomplishing goals she never thought possible, including becoming proficient in Olympic Lifting.  CrossFit brought Lisa’s training as a young gymnast full circle.  In 2011, Lisa qualified and competed at the CrossFit Regionals in the Team Competition.  In 2014, Lisa finished 38th worldwide and 3rd in Southern California in the Master’s Division of the CrossFit Open.

When asked why Lisa prefers CrossFit over other fitness programs she said, “In addition to the family and community aspect of CrossFit, I am in better shape and can do so much more than when I was spending several hours in a globo gym or hours training for a marathon.”

Lisa is passionate about CrossFit.  She has trained individuals of all ages ranging from 5 to 88 years old and assisted those recovering from injury.
