Lisa Shanken is an accredited nutrition counselor, healthy cooking instructor, certified personal trainer, and certified Corporate Wellness Specialist. In addition to publishing several books, she has provided private one-on-one nutrition counseling, private cooking instruction, fitness training, supermarket tours, and healthy cooking classes since 2001. She also helps companies build and enhance their in-house corporate wellness programs to increase employee satisfaction and lower insurance costs.
Lisa believes in customizing health and wellness strategies to fit each individual’s lifestyle. Rather than promoting “quick-fix” diets that inevitably fail, Lisa created the Tri-Wellness philosophy of teaching nutrition, fitness, and healthy cooking to ensure lifelong healthy living and balance.
After receiving a B.S. at Cornell University, she then trained at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, Natural Gourmet School, and Pratt Institute in New York City. She earned her personal training certification at the American Fitness Institute, and her Corporate Wellness certification from Vital Advantage Corporate Wellness Consulting. Lisa’s kitchen in Boulder, CO is always stocked because she loves to cook and to share her passion with her friends, husband and two (fussy eater!) children.
My passion is to help you live your healthiest and most harmonious life, but in a way that’s realistic and practical for you as a unique individual on this planet. My philosophy is all about “balance,” never a diet since a diet is not sustainable for life, aka Kill The Diet.
