Lisa CooperLisa Cooper - Owner/Fitness Coach 

Involved in multiple sports since the age of 5, Lisa took her love of athletics into coaching youth at all levels. As a lifelong Bakersfield resident, Lisa has since taken her passion of coaching sports and transformed it into coaching hundreds of women in fitness, nutrition and wellness.

As a Mom of 4 active kids, Lisa can relate to the struggles that busy women face whether it's making time for themselves, finding time to plan and cook healthy meals or losing weight after baby. Her passion for helping other women is what inspired Lisa to start Bakersfield Adventure Boot Camp 9 years ago. Since then, Lisa has encouraged and motivated her campers to change their lives through energizing and fun workouts that bring results.

Lisa received her degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education from Cal State Bakersfield. She is a NESTA Certified Boot Camp Instructor and Nutrition Coach as well as having been certified as a Personal Trainer through NASM. Currently, she is spreading her love of fitness throughout the community working for the Kern High School Districts Staff Wellness Program as well as teaching classes at CSUB.

Still active in sports, Lisa plays in volleyball, softball and soccer leagues. This is her 36th year playing soccer and she recently has began running half marathons, she will complete her 5th this summer.

In Boot Camp you will gain confidence and feel great! Every day in camp is a good day and Lisa's goal is to make sure that you look forward to tomorrow!
