Lisa's Likes! A Few Favorite Things From The Owner Of The Studio (MDR)

Whether you’re used to seeing her behind The Studio (MDR)'s signature hot pink desk or breaking a sweat next to you on the MegaFormer during an intense session, you may know Lisa Hirsch as the soul of The Studio (MDR).  As a dedicated small business owner in Marina Del Rey, Lisa works 18 hour days and juggles various roles and responsibilities from meeting with press, managing staff and building customer relationships. Aside from her consistent exercise and entrepreneurial routine, looking good while staying comfortable is what helps Lisa manage the active lifestyle of a fitness entrepreneur. As someone who embodies the LOOK IT + FEEL IT + LIVE IT mantra of The Studio (MDR), we wanted to find out some of Lisa’s Likes!

Lisa’s everyday couture typically includes Lululemon, K·Swiss, and ToeSox.  Lululemon’s manifesto boasts that the brand creates products for people to live longer, healthier and more fun lives.  Lisa says, “I have lived in Lululemon clothing everyday for the past year day-in and day-out at the studio.  However they make Lululemon is genius because nothing wears any of their products down no matter what I do to them!” And she shares the same feeling about her shoes.  Since 1966, K·Swiss has represented innovation, quality, performance and style.   Lisa agrees, “I love all of their colors and how comfortable they are! We shop at the K-Swiss store in Santa Monica." The last of Lisa’s Likes pair nicely with or without her kicks:  ToeSox!  The unique five-toe design helps align mistreated toes and feet naturally. ToeSox help spread your toes to strengthen foot muscles and increase blood circulation.  Plus, there is no shortage of color combos and styles to pique your pleasure! The Studio (MDR) has ToeSox styles available for purchase.

Lisa Hirsch certainly proves that just because you trade in your 9 to 5 (as she did when she left working 24/7 in entertainment for the fitness industry), that doesn’t mean you can’t comfortably stay in style! Stay tuned for more Lisa Likes in the coming months.
