Olivia grew up in the Lake County area. After high school she became obese after developing an eating disorder. Years of bullying, no confidence and trying many things that strengthened her eating disorder drove her to change. She told myself it was all or nothing, there had to be a way. She read books and studied on fitness and decided to try bodybuilding by herself. She quickly fell in love with it. It was something that brought her discipline, strength and so much more. She never gave up or looked back and ended up transforming her whole life and found her passion.
She then studied through ISSA to get her Elite Trainer certification to work with average people all the way up to athletes/bodybuilders. When she joined the Army as a very fit individual, she ended up getting hurt to the point of being disabled. She has used many methods of rehab to help keep her going. Thus finding her way into the rehab sphere of learning. She never take clients through anything that she hasn't or wouldn't do herself.
Her goal is to help everyone achieve a healthy lifestyle that is not just about how you look on the outside but how you feel on the inside and how you function. She also have a big passion to help women see that they are capable of many things. Outside of work she enjoys the outdoors, the gym everyday, yoga, meditation, violin and creative art.

Polly Liontis, LMT, AOBTA CP
Polly Liontis was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to the Chicagoland area after receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Piano Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Polly’s first working life was in the theater as a pianist, actress, musical director, and drama coach for opera singers. She made the transition from a performing artist to a healing artist 25 years ago, upon becoming certified as a Zen Shiatsu Therapist/Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a certified Himalayan Yoga/Meditation Instructor.
Polly combines the arts of Yoga/Meditation/Guided Imagery and Breathing techniques into her Shiatsu bodywork sessions. Shiatsu is a Japanese style of bodywork based on thousands of years of Chinese Medical Philosophy, and it employs the techniques of abdominal diagnosis, acupressure (compression on the acupuncture points), gentle passive stretching, and soft tissue manipulation to affect muscle relaxation, improve blood and lymph circulation, and induce a deep relaxation response in the autonomic nervous system. Shiatsu often achieves pain relief and can help retrain the musculature for more optimal alignment.
Polly considers herself a teacher above all and loves to teach clients self-care tools to keep themselves healthy, and helping them to explore the narrative of their health for optimal health and well-being.
She considers the greatest art to be the art of living a fully vibrant, robust, engaged, radiant, purposeful and meaningful life. Her greatest joys are spending time with her children and grandchildren, cooking for family and friends, spending time in nature, and singing, chanting, and narrating stories.
