COACHES

Helen Lawson

Head Coach

I love improving peoples lives.  That comes in so many different forms because there are so many different types of people. My favorite memories of clients include helping a grandmother get off the floor, improving a world class athlete from ranked 3rd to 1st in the country,  first Muscle-Up for a Physical Therapist, first Handstand Push-up for a stay at home Mom, first Jump Rope for a 69 year old grandmother, first push-up for a military candidate, etc… The list goes on and on!
