About Lisamarie8
Greetings from Summit County, Colorado. In 2000, I decided to put my 25 years of fitness expertise to good use. It was the start of a highly successful writing career, which lead to publication in Aspen Magazine, HerSports, The Professional Skier, Pregnancy Magazine, EPregnancy, Wired and many other print and online publications.

My guidebook, Breckenridge: A Guide to the Sights and Slopes of Summit County will be available in April of 2009. I also have a Breckenridge visual podcast tour, which you can be purchased at VisualTravel Tours.com.

When I am not teaching fitness at Mountain Sport Fitness, My Summit County personal training business, I am a tour guide for the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance, a skier surveyor for Copper Mountain and a mentor for the Snowsport Outreach Society.

Highlights of my career include:

*Teaching a ski fitness week in Portillo, Chile

*Teaching fitness to the chorus of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City

*Working as a Master Trainer for Fitour

* Having my Prenatal Exercise Class featured on News 4 Boston

*Doing an exercise presentation for the Arthritis Foundation

*Being a Pilates Presenter for the Body, Mind and Soul Conference in Boston

* Spending a summer studying Italian in Perugia, Italy and teaching fitness to an international student body.

*Teaching a fitness class at a Global Unity Conference in a small medieval town outside of Prague.

I am also the author of a number of books, such as Winter Fitness: Mastering Life Through Love of the Slopes, and 101 Fitness Tips for Women. Additionally, I've written a few books for stylecareer.com, including:

Since my husband is a frequent business traveler, we use his frequent flyer miles to trot the globe on a regular basis. Our journeys have brought us to most of Europe, including the Czech Republic and Budapest, a good portion of the UK, a bit of South America and a bit of the Middle East.

Adventures a bit closer to home include most of the United States, Eastern and Western Canada and a little bit of Mexico and the Caribbean.
