Assistant General Manager
Sam has many years of experience in the fitness industry, most recently as a Fitness Expert for Men’s Health Magazine and an Account Executive for a regional personal training business. However, his most recent experience before joining VIDA originated with a one-way flight to Asia where his journey around the world would begin. Sam explored 35 countries on 6 continents over the span of 3 years. He explored the cities of the world and traversed the wild landscapes beyond the reaches of comfort. It was utterly exhausting, but his time abroad was incredibly rewarding and fraught with lessons. Sam has begun the next chapter in his adventure at VIDA, willing and able to get back to his fitness roots.

Lisa joined the Vida team in 2010 with 4 years of previous personal training experience. Lisa is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and hold a corrective exercise specialization through them as well as an undergraduate degree in Health Science from Marymount University and a masters degree in Forensic Science from the UK. She is certified in TRX, Kinesiology taping, FMS (Functional Movement Screen), Real Ryder and MadDogg. You can find her on the fitness floor or in the spinning studio or TRX studio teaching a class. She is originally from Sweden so if you ever hear a Swedish song in her class, or she references a saying that does not make any sense that is why.
Group Program Manager
Chad joined the VIDA team in the Fall of 2015 and brings with him more than 12 years of experience in the fitness industry.

Group Fitness provided a stage for Chad’s rockstar energy and has been teaching TRX, Cycle and various other sculpting formats since his arrival in DC almost a decade ago. As the new frontman of VIDA’s Group Fitness Program at Verizon, Chad’s Rock & Roll attitude will spark new, fun and sweaty adventures that will keep you coming back for more!
