Lisa from the Inner Athlete

meet lisa, owner of TIA

Lisa's love for lifelong fitness and passion for physical education inspired her to create the Inner Athlete. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a Communications Degree and worked in television production for several years. She loved the opportunities television production provided but she was left feeling unfulfilled and knew she wasn't she wasn't following her true She knew her true calling was just this: showing young people a similar fulfillment that she had found in sports and movement.


After this Ah-ha moment, she went back to school and earned a Masters degree in Physical Education and Health. After graduating, Lisa was a physical and health educator in Irvington, NJ which was one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. There, Lisa introduced an innovative health and fitness program to the students that focused on the idea of choice and interest.


With the education system changing rapidly and so much emphasis on test scores and lack of physical activity, PE and active play is becoming a thing of the past. Consequently, we are seeing a sharp rise in childhood obesity, diabetes, and a generation of sedentary children. This is why she decided to launch, The Inner Athlete. The goal for TIA is to help each child in discovering physical activities they enjoy and feel confident doing eventually leading to the love and appreciation of lifelong health and wellness.
