Employee Spotlight – Lisa Banks, Fitness Manager

August 30th, 2021

There are so many incredible amenities at Savannah Quarters® to enjoy every day, especially the fitness and activities provided at The Club. Lisa Banks is enjoying her fourth year as Fitness Manager and Head Personal Trainer, and she tells us her favorite part of the job is the people. “Each person has value. I enjoy hearing their stories and learning from their life experiences. I also love sharing my knowledge of fitness with them.”

As exercisers of The Club at Savannah Quarters already know, there is golf, tennis, swimming, group fitness classes and personal training. For fitness inspiration, check out how Lisa spends her day:

AM: Lisa starts her day with a spin class – this helps her wake up her brain and muscles.

Mid-day: In between scheduled group fitness classes, Lisa takes time every day to check-in with staff attendants and the fitness center to make sure everything is running smoothly.

After work: Lisa ends her day with outdoor activities – her favorites include swimming with her daughters or hitting the range with a friend.

Evening: Before everyone goes to sleep, Lisa loves to get in family time by playing a board game… or two!

Lisa is Ohio-born, Alabama-raised, and Virginia-schooled with a degree in Exercise Science. Her experiences even include teaching physical education. When asked about her favorite part of Savannah Quarters, she replied, “The fitness center, the pool, the golf course, The Club and the homes! Savannah Quarters is SO SO beautiful!”

Lisa’s background in fitness keeps her and her family on the move, especially when she is off from work. “My family and I enjoy all things water and beach – beach volleyball, surfing, blue crabbing, scalloping and boating.” She also relishes moments with her husband, a huge Georgia Bulldogs fan, over a glass of wine. And perhaps one final fun fact about her – Lisa is also a budding golfer.

At The Club, Lisa is a constant presence throughout the day, checking in on various fitness groups and with her staff of attendants making sure the fitness center is running smoothly. If you are ready to get fit, consider becoming a member of The Club. Whether you are in the mood to take part in a Spin® Class or would like to have tips for eating healthier, Fitness Manager and Head Personal Trainer Lisa Banks can offer that and so much more. The Club is open Tuesdays through Sundays.
