Lisa Boksenbaum, J.D., PMA ® CPT
Lisa divides her work time between practicing corporate law, teaching Pilates and leading the behind-the-scenes team at FitLabPGH. Off the clock, she enjoys a variety of fitness and movement activities, including walking, cycling, Pilates, yoga and regular walk/jogs with her boyfriend and his Labradors. Lisa became a fan of Pilates during law school when she discovered it not only relieved the physical and mental stress induced by long hours spent hunched over a computer or textbooks, but it also allowed her to reawaken her dormant inner gymnast with workouts that incorporated inversions, backbends and splits. Lisa earned a BA in Political Science and a law degree from the University of Washington in Seattle and completed her comprehensive Pilates teacher training at Balance Within Pilates Studio in Redmond, WA. She is a Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Certified Pilates Teacher. Born in Pittsburgh and raised in the Bay Area of California, Lisa spent most of her adult life in Seattle before returning to Pittsburgh in 2013.
