Staff

  • Lidija Prather - Performance Coach

    The best reward from being a performance coach comes from the relationships we develop with our clients. Lidija lives by the famous words of Confucius “do what you love and you’ll never work a day.”
    Lidija graduated from Old Dominion University with a degree in Exercise Science. During her last semester, she completed an internship in strength and conditioning at Christopher Newport University. This internship gave her an opportunity to work with athletes from 22 different sports. She truly got a taste of what being a performance coach is like and fell in love with this type of work. Educating and helping young athletes achieve their goals was the best hands on experience one can get. Upon graduation, she became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach through NSCA.
    Lidija, along with her husband and two children, resides in a quiet little town in Isle of Wight County. In her free time she enjoys snowboarding, mountain biking, and hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Growing up in Eastern Europe, Lidija was active in gymnastics but gave it up upon moving to the United States. These days, she can be found playing a fun game of tennis with her family or cheering on her older daughter during her softball and volleyball games.

  • Russell Edwards - Performance Coach

    For Russell Edwards, achieving one's goal is a marathon not a sprint.  Consistency and patience yield the most optimal results, which is exactly how he relates to his clients.

    "I love exercise, reaching goals and educating, so why not pursue the one profession where I can do all  three," he says of his decision to become a performance coach.

    Russell's energy and dedication transcend his own athletic passions, carrying over to his professional philosophy and interactions.  He knows reaching a goal can be tough, however, admitting, "If it was easy, everybody would be doing it."  This is particularly evident in his specialty areas of weight loss, sport-specific training, power lifting, Strong Man and Highlander Games training.

    Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Russell graduated from Metro State College of Denver in 2008.  He played baseball and soccer in high school, rugby in college and today he burns fuel snowboarding, lifting weights and going to concerts.  His favorite clients?  "Anyone who wants to succeed, anyone who wants to reach their goals, anyone who wants to put in the effort."

Fit. Healthy. Strong.
