Lisa has a Community Health degree from St Cloud State University. She has been in the fitness world in some capacity all her life – from a three sport high school athlete, to marathons, duathlons, triathlons and eventually Ironman. Looking to bring a new aspect to her training, she started her CrossFit journey after finishing the Ironman. Lisa fell in love with the community and the strength she gained, which fueled her passion for helping others. As her youngest son started kindergarten she began coaching CrossFit where she developed her skills for over five years.
As her experience and knowledge of what it took to help clients be successful for the long-term grew, she started to look for additional resources to help her clients get the most out of their training. Lisa found OPEX when she started looking for more. With individual program design she is able to help others reach their true potential. She enjoys the personalized aspects of coaching and training that OPEX makes possible. For Lisa, there is nothing more rewarding than joining someone on their fitness journey.
Lisa and her husband have two very active sons. When she is not in the gym, you will find her at various sporting events cheering them on. As a family they stay active biking, wakeboarding, skiing and taking the dogs for walks.
Dr. Frikken recently graduated from Physical Therapy school in May of 2020 after working to reinvent himself to help people become more fit and work their way through injuries in order to stay active. He has actively CrossFitted for most of a decade and he coaches classes through Hybrid Farm St. Cloud. If you are an active fitness practitioner looking for a DPT that “gets” what you do, Dr. Jon now offers Physical Therapy by appointment at Hybrid Farm.
“I originally graduated with a Master’s degree in Construction Management from NDSU in 2009. Searching for more to my career than just a paycheck I found Crossfit in 2012 and worked my way up to becoming a coach. While coaching, many people would come in with various issues such as a hurt shoulder, hip, knee, etc. Instead of simply helping people work around their issue, I chose to change careers, become a physical therapist, and help people reclaim their abilities to enjoy life while pursuing better health.
I enjoy going for walks and hiking with my wife Jessie and dog Kit. I also like to read, so feel free to let me know if you have any book recommendations!”
