Our Story

With an approach toward fitness delivery and implementation that has spanned four decades, over 20 successful studios, and over 25,000 clients and students, Timothy Schliebe has developed a culture of time-proven techniques, combined with cutting-edge programs that helps each individual reach and exceed their personal fitness goals. We stand behind our solid core principles that will not be compromised, allowing you to experience a feeling of intimacy, energy, safety, and success whether exercising in a group, or in a one-on-one training session.  It is that feeling of individual attention and care each time you walk through the door, that makes the experience at L.I.F.T. so exceptional and exclusive. 

These are some of the trademarks and unique standards that have become part of the Schliebe mystique and Legendary qualities. With the joint collaboration of Timothy Schliebe and Denise Naylor, the legend continues to grow and flourish with new concepts and new ideas in the realm of Fitness.

Timothy Schliebe

The definition of a Legend is simply someone who has excelled at a high level for a significant length of time. For Timothy, that length of time has been for over 40 years (since 1972 to be exact). The task has been one of a passion for coaching and training clients to reach their utmost levels of fitness. Over 25,000 clients have been touched by Timothy’s ability to create an environment that manifests success in each and every student he reaches. From Colorado to California, and now at home here in Bend, Oregon he brings his unique talents once again to those seeking a higher quality of life through fitness. A recognized Motivational speaker and certified Life Coach, as well as consultant for countless startup studios, he is recognized as one of the leaders in the dynamic field of the Fitness Industry. Whether you are in one of Timothy's Industry recognized Team Training Sessions or working one-on-one with Timothy in one of his Personal Training sessions, you will agree, as thousands already have, he is a Master at what he does and indeed is a "Legend."

 

Denise Naylor

After a successful Fitness Instructing career in San Diego and Personal Training career with Timothy, as well as an established reputation as a sought after Massage Therapist, Denise has teamed up with Timothy once again to create the perfect Coaching Duo. You will find her not only coaching, but working with clients one-on-one, and putting her skills as a massage therapist to use by offering multiple modalities of massage including sports massage, neuromuscular therapy, deep tissue, Tui Na, and more. 

As Timothy's partner, her extensive experience in Management and Finance, and as a retail store buyer and designer, all work together to make her a tremendously valuable part of the success that is L.I.F.T. (Legendary Indoor Fitness Training). You will also find her filling the role of Operations Director for the studio and is responsible for all day-to-day functions including Marketing, Sales, and Studio Promotions.
