Lisa Stone, ACE
Certified Fitness Instructor

Lisa Stone, ACELisa Stone ACE, a certified fitness instructor, is the founder and president of Fit For 2, an original pre- and post-natal fitness program which she developed. She is the Deputy Director of the Georgia Governor's Commission on Physical Fitness & Sports and is a board member of the National Association of Health & Fitness.

After experiencing the benefits of pre-natal exercise classes while pregnant with her first child, Lisa decided to pursue formal certification instruction in the relatively new field. She makes the point that giving birth is a huge physical event which requires stamina both in labor and during the recovery process. "You wouldn't show up on the day of a marathon without having trained and expect to perform at your peak," she says. "It helps to be physically prepared."

Fit For 2In 1994, Lisa produced the highly acclaimed video, The Fit For 2 Step Aerobic Workout For Pregnancy. She regularly contributes articles for leading publications on the benefits of exercise during pregnancy and during the post-partum period, and makes appearances on a number of local and national television programs.

Lisa received a B.A. in political science from UCLA in 1985. She is a certified fitness instructor through the American Council on Exercise (ACE), with a specialty certification in pre- and post-natal fitness. In 1993, she founded Fit For 2 and currently consults with a number of fitness organizations in the Atlanta region, including Australian Body Works and the Concourse Athletic Club. A former Louisiana tennis champion, Lisa resides in Atlanta with her husband and three children.
