Why work with me? Good question.

With 20+ years in the fitness industry, I have a depth of knowledge that enables me to create a plan that is specifically customized for your unique needs.

I understand the fears of walking into a "big box" gym - from the sales process to the uncertainty of where things are and how to use them.

I understand the "gym speak" of some trainers, and the intimidation that can cause.

Your sessions at Phoenix Rising will be designed for you, and explained to you, in a logical way so you understand my intent and process. We will then add progress to the process to give you greater mobility, more energy, and optimal results.

I specialize in helping you

    • keep and improve your mobility
    • avoid re-injury
    • walk/move without pain
    • eliminate muscular compensations
    • avoid or recover from replacement surgery

Let's get started so that you can #livelifebetter every day!

Professionally Speaking

Sessions are fun & motivating

Lisle lives up to his “evil trainer” nickname—he will make you WORK—but he will also make you laugh while doing it and get you the results you’re looking for. My sessions with him are always so fun and motivating, and I can feel them working and building strength, which was my goal. He is deeply concerned with you doing things right and making the tiny adjustments needed to improve your technique. I 100% recommend Lisle!

he encourages and motivates

Lisle is one hell of a trainer!  He encourages, motivates, pushes, and challenges you. Identifies your strengths and weak points. All adding in a bit of humour for some spice. You leave the gym feeling accomplished knowing you have worked out. I don’t call him captain punishment for nothing😀

Lisle is a master of his craft; incredibly bright with a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge in weight training, mobility, fat loss and a warm, spontaneous personality that make workouts fun. He is brimming with the brains to help anyone achieve their goals as crazy and unbelievable as they may think they are. After training with him I lost over 110lbs and built some serious muscle. Lisle is the real deal in an industry full of wannabes and is the standard by which any trainer should be measured. 



Lisle took the time to develop a program that achieved great results for me. He always got me to push that extra bit, even when I didn't think that I could. He knows how to get you the results that you are looking for.
