Lift


This class is taught by:

Felicia Harrison

Hi, I am Felicia!
As Co-Owner of Inspiration Fitness, LLC, I have worked in the Fitness industry for almost 10 years.


Growing up I was always active; playing numerous sports competitively and was a 4-year volleyball starter in college. Proper nutrition and strength training has always played a key part in my ability to stay healthy and strong.


As much as I enjoy leading fitness classes, my real passion lies in not only the physical training but also the mental training. So often I work with individuals that struggle with believing in themselves and I love to come in and help create an attitude of positive thinking – because when we are mentally strong we can achieve so much!


My current hobbies include running and road cycling as well as spending time watching my three children compete in their favorite sports. I live in Golden with my husband, our three kids and dog Beau.

Laura Wallis

Hi I'm Laura!  I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Aurora. After spending a few years working on a cruise ship and dancing professionally in Las Vegas, I returned to this beautiful state and couldn’t be happier. I love finding new places to hike on the weekends, testing my endurance with a workout at Red Rocks, and snowshoeing through the winter.
 

While I have danced and taught dance throughout my life, I also have a mixed back of tricks to bring to the table. Weight lifting is my passion and I have competed in several NPC Figure Competitions under the eyes of a Ms. Olympia ranked coach. I have also dappled in circus arts, specifically aerial silks, and was once invited to and auditioned for Cirque du Soleil.

 

Personal progression is addicting and I love helping others achieve that. I am a group fitness certified instructor as well as licensed in several Zumba genres. I look forward to working with you all to reach and exceed your fitness goals. It’s going to be a great ride!

Laura Cook-Newman

Hi – I’m Laura!
Right around the time when MC Hammer was urging us to “Turn this Mutha Out”, I was bitten by the fitness bug and have been an AFAA certified instructor since 1993. I am also a certified Sports Nutrition Consultant!

 

Now this “mutha” balances family, friends, and a busy gig as a traveling chef with my continuously growing love of being strong, sexy, centered, and healthy.  

 

Want to run your first 5K? Want to drop some lbs? Want to develop some definition in your triceps? Want to get some Zen? Or do you just want to dance like nobody’s watching? Yeah, me too. And guess what? We’re gonna do it…ALL!

 

Then we’re going to collapse in a sweaty mess, throw on some yoga pants, and go celebrate ourselves with a glass of wine – because life is all about balance. Cheers!

Tiffany Bucknam

Hi I’m Tiffany and I want to help you find your spark!

 

I teach out of a desire to share the joy I experience in my own training. Several years ago, I was obese and desperately unhappy. I walked into my first Zumba class and slowly developed a fitness routine that has enabled me to rebuild my body and enjoy my life in a way that I never imagined that I could.

 

I have studied Yoga for most of my adult life and my practice is deeply meaningful to me. I’m also a Social Worker and a mom of two. I have learned many, many things in my journeys and am passionate about supporting others as they work to keep their whole beings healthy. I believe that wellness is available to everyone regardless of our personal limitations and that joy is the birthright of every human soul. That we are all capable of changing our habits and building lifestyles that nourish our bodies and minds, and that we do this best by working together.

 

I am certified as a group exercise instructor, personal trainer, ViPR personal trainer, and Hatha Yoga instructor. I am also a licensed and experienced Zumba instructor and a TRX group exercise instructor. I strive to make my classes accessible to EVERY body, especially ones that have limitations due to injury, illness, or fear. Come play!
