Clients who are living fully balanced...
"Lisa is a positive, can do force of nature with a way of translating, that speaks to most of us at a heart centered, essential level. She has a way of distilling complex ideas and the clutter of modern life into simple, easy to digest and integrate bites that can improve our balance, focus, and harmony. Her humility, compassion, and willingness to learn from others and co-create are an immense asset and blessing to anyone who interacts with her, whether client, collaborator, or sponsor."
~ Nancy Mayfield-Wilson, Founder Max Performance/Resilience & Change Coach

"Lisa has a soft-spoken approach to helping people decipher the hard realities that keep them from their goals. After having attended a group coaching session facilitated by her, I was floored about how much I learned about myself. She is an amazing speaker and motivator. Lisa is continuously changing lives and empowering them and I always look forward to our ongoing interactions."
~ Ruby Singh, Cruise Planners/ American Express (Plymouth, MN)
"Lisa is such a joy to work with! She has her own personal experiences which makes her health coaching really meaningful and made me feel comfortable right from the start! Lisa also is always doing different trainings to make sure she has the most up to date information to help her clients. Overall I LOVE working with Lisa and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to live a more balanced life!"
~ Amanda Enderle, Brand and Social Media Marketing Consultant (Minneapolis, MN)
"Lisa is wonderful! She is so encouraging, and takes the time to create a plan that works for you. She held me accountable without being pushy. With Lisa's help, I have been able to become more flexible in my thinking, more realistic with my goals and expectations, and truly understand what it means to live a balanced life."
~ Erica Swanson (Minneapolis, MN)
"I started seeing Lisa initially to help me lose weight and help me make healthier decisions. What I’ve received with her coaching is far beyond weight loss.
I’ve unlocked tools in me that I didn’t know I had. As a matter of fact we haven’t even talked about weight loss, however I’ve lost weight! We’ve talked about mindset changes – pauses as she would say. She’s helped me nurture and develop my inner peace.
Prior to having Lisa as my life coach I felt anxious about everything. I was able to talk myself into or out of anything – whatever I thought fit me best. I worried about everything and over thought everything. This caused overeating, anxiety, restlessness, no motivation, etc.
Lisa has helped me utilize my own tools and emotions to further my life experiences with everyone from my husband, to our kids, family and friends. She has taught me communication tools, balancing thoughts, visionary concepts, and to just take a different look at every situation.
Everyone has the tools – but we don’t know we do – Lisa brings this out. She makes you think. She helps you come up with your own resolution to a problem. She listens intently and explains what she hears to you so you can understand what you’re saying.
She provides clear guidance. Her perception is incredible. Her positive energy is infectious.
Lisa is truly a blessing in my life and I know I would not be where I am right now without her coaching. My journey with her help is just beginning!"
~ Jeannie Doble, McCullough & Associates, P.A. (Lindstrom, MN)
"Thank you so much for another amazing workshop. The information you have provided is priceless to me. It has allowed me to stop in my tracks, reflect on past decisions and future endeavors and I was able to step outside my box and take a risk that day. For that, I will always thank you. We are busy as can be, but because of the knowledge and techniques you have inspired me with...... I am able to take special moments to fill my cup and keep my eyes on the prize..... You Rock!!"
~ Amy Marlin (Wayzata, MN)
Before - "I had a cloudy perspective on my relationship with my daughter and really who I am and what I want for the rest of my human time."
After - "I am subtly showing my daughter how much I care for her and her passions by doing things for her “from afar”. She seems to be noticing! I am gaining some clarity about what I want my life to look like here forward. Feels encouraging and good!"
~ George S. (Plymouth. MN)
"Over a year ago, when I first read online that Lisa was facilitating a group with the focus on surviving the holidays, I felt compelled to attend. I had all but given up on surviving the holidays for the past several years. I often wished we could just skip November and December all together. So I went.
We were a lively group! The atmosphere was welcoming and encouraging. And I found I was not alone. We all came with our own stresses and struggles with getting through the holidays and everyone shared openly. Lisa took care and guided us on ways to relax, accept what we cannot change, and set realistic goals. She offered ideas to stay healthy and positive, and enjoy the pending festivities.
Then something really awesome happened! As a group, we decided that this one meeting was not enough. We all felt empowered and supported, and decided that we should check in with each other during and after the holidays. So we did and that's how Club Connect started!
Ever since joining Club Connect that late fall, I've come to look very forward to our next meeting. Every month, I learn something about myself; feel challenged to react to "real life" differently, and enjoy the other people willing to share with, and support each other. Knowing I have a coach, and a network of people that care, makes navigating daily life so much better! Sometimes we laugh. Sometimes we cry. But always we grow stronger, healthier, happier."
~ Mike Beck (Minneapolis, MN)
"When I contacted Lisa, I was recovering from a very difficult divorce. I had been self-medicating myself with food and had gained a significant amount of weight. I was at a low point in my life. I needed someone to help me find myself again. When doing a google search I found Lisa and contacted her. Immediately upon talking over the phone and meeting with her, I felt that she truly understood me and listened without judging me. The lightbulb went off for me when Lisa shared with me that I needed to talk to myself like I would my best friend. I had been beating myself and speaking very negatively to myself in my head. Lisa has been inspirational and so helpful. I have learned so much from her and have pulled myself out of the negative spiral I had been on. I will forever be grateful for the work that we have done together and look forward to our continued coaching. If you feel lost or out of control, I strongly encourage you to begin working with her!"
~Amy Gunderson (Brooklyn Park, MN)
"Before meeting with Lisa I felt like I was in a downward spiral, stuck in a rut with old habits. In a short period of time, with her welcoming and effective method, I was able to find myself with a much better attitude. This change in attitude resulted in very positive changes in my life. I love the fact that working with her is not a cookie cutter format. I felt that the program was designed for me, specifically for my personality type. Lisa is caring, her place is so welcoming, and time flies when I'm with her. I highly encourage anyone seeking balance to meet with Lisa. Thank you Lisa!"
~ Paty Conchon, Co-owner McCormicks Pub and Restaurant (Wayzata, MN)
"I have had the great pleasure of being a part of a group she facilitates once a month. As the group facilitator, Lisa listens carefully to everyone and promotes discussions that have been useful tools for me. Lisa has great knowledge about living a healthy and balanced life and because of her insightful discussions; I am learning how to take care of myself as well as others around me. I truly believe that I am headed towards a more healthy and balanced lifestyle. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who might be looking for a little sunshine in their lives. Lisa will bring that sunshine into your life!"
~ Colleen Kane, St. Therese Catholic School (Plymouth, MN)
"Three years ago I lost 55 lbs and was successfully maintaining my new 'normal' weight. Then life intervened. I was completely overloaded and in what seemed like no time at all, I was resuming old patterns. I was eating, feeling out of control and gaining weight. As a result I was depressed, and was beating myself up. I was afraid that this was the beginning of the end of my success, and secretly telling myself that see- your success was a mirage, you are a failure after all. In short I was in a death spiral.
I asked Lisa for help. Through her patient listening, thoughtful guidance, and knowledgeable suggestions I came to several eye opening ah-ha moments. I came to understand that I was linking feeling overloaded and eating as a way to express it-an old old behavior. Once I understood how I had automatically linked the feeling and the behavior, I then realized I had the power to separate them. And once I mentally separated them, I was back in control, out of the death spiral and back on track.
Although my 'crisis' is over I’m continuing to work with Lisa. With her help, I'm learning to view what happened as a blip in my successful weight loss journey, rather than confirmation of my fundamental failure. I'm learning (in the words of Rachel Remen) "what we believe about ourselves can hold us hostage".
~ Ilene Adam (Austin, Texas)
"I am feeling stronger every day....This butterfly is ready to fly free !! Free of my old habits, balanced lifestyle, with total self accountability. My journal is so beneficial in keeping myself accountable to myself. "Food is no longer the center of my life." You can quote me on that!! I will never be able to thank you enough. You changed my life, so I could have a life."
~ Dave Iverson (Minneapolis, MN)
"Lisa has an infectious enthusiasm for helping others reach their personal goals. You quickly realize that she gets a charge out of supporting others, and that is the kind of person you want in your corner, leading you on! Lisa’s insight was critical for me to reach my weight loss goal. She takes the time to really listen to your personal challenges, and your personal goals, and helps to create a livable plan for success. She has both personal and professional knowledge that she draws from to help you build the healthy habits you need to really shine. Lisa is an awesome ally!"
~Dawn Lani, Interior Design Consultan (Maple Grove, MN)
"Getting to a place where you feel healthy and maintaining that sense of health is never as easy as it seems it should be. I have really appreciated Lisa's insight and help through my journey of seeking a healthy lifestyle. When you talk with her, her responses affirm you have been heard and understood. She is encouraging and she knows the science behind her facts and suggestions so if you want to know more and go deeper she is able. Integrity and sincerity flow from her, building a connection right away. Lisa is easy to talk with. I am quite grateful for all Lisa has done to help me so far and know as I continue with her, I will continue to gain perspective and growth in my health."
~Kathy A. (Rogers, Minnesota)
"I have known Lisa Bobyak for several years, and have had the experience of being in groups that she is facilitating, as well, as having one-on-one conversations. As a professional listener and facilitator myself, I am a tough critic when it comes to watching people do these jobs. Lisa is remarkably gifted in listening and facilitating in ways needed to bring about insight and behavior change with people. She has the ability to be truly present, listens and responds to what is actually being said -- which is evidence that she "hears" people.
er level of wisdom, insight, and truly generous compassion for others is obvious in every interaction I have observed. I'd recommend working with Lisa for any number of things -- she is smart, organized, and effective."
