WHO WE ARE
As Co-Founder of GLIDE TC, Josh is excited to bring over a decade's worth of training, education, and experience to bear on your fitness goals. He has trained over 1000 people since coming back home to San Diego after he earned his B.S. in Exercise Science at CSU, Long Beach. In addition to being a Certified Personal Trainer (ACSM), Josh is also a card carrying Running Coach (RRCA)
Running Form Coaching: Whether you are training for an endurance race, working on improving your speed, or are just an everyday runner, Josh can help you improve your form, speed, biomechanics, and efficiency. He has helped people set personal records, complete their first 5k, half and full marathon, and worked closely with Jaden Rosenthal, who placed 2nd at the 2018 CIF State Finals in the 1600m and is now a runner at Cal Berkley. By observing your gait, he can prescribe both a strengthening program and a running program that will help you achieve your goals and reduce your risk of injury as a result of weakness, muscle imbalances, overtraining, or improper biomechanics.
Sports Performance: Josh has worked with both Albion SC and Blast SC and continues to work with high school athletes to improve speed, power, and quickness. Athletes competing in soccer, cross-country, volleyball, and field hockey have seen tremendous improvement by developing specific strength and conditioning programs.
Golf: Improve your swing, putting, and overall performance by working on rotational strength, proprioception and mobility. Josh has a love for golf and training to help improve your score or decrease aches and pains associated with playing.

She has extensive background in injury prevention and care as well as nutrition for both weight loss and performance. Lisa is a Certified Personal Trainer and she earned her B.S. in Kinesiology and M.S. in Exercise Science from Point Loma Nazarene University. From her years of competitive soccer to her training for endurance races, Lisa always looks to push herself with new challenges and lead her clients by example.
Pregnancy: In her M.S program at Point Loma Nazarene University, Lisa focused her thesis project on training protocol during pregnancy- managing and relieving pregnancy related pain, safely maintaining activity level and strength, and preparing the body for giving birth with a reduced risk of injury and improved recovery time.
Nutrition: Fueling your body properly is essential for weight loss, strength gains, and sports performance. Lisa specializes in creating individualized meal plans and nutrition guides for clients that are specific to their goals.
Injury Prevention: Lisa worked in the Athletic Training department of Div. I colleges, including St. Joseph's University where she worked with the men's soccer team. Athletes often suffer injury because they do repetitive movements, so cross training, stretching, foam rolling, and manual work are extremely beneficial to their performance and overall health.
