About Us

Functional Elements Studio is a concept that was conceived out of a combined 30 years of experience in the fitness industry by its owner Lissy Stalter and partner Omar Lima.

Lissy and Omar both began their fitness journey working as personal trainers in the corporate world of 24 Hour Fitness. Omar worked his way through fitness management at multiple 24 Hour Fitness locations in California. Lissy graduated from the University of Hawaii Manoa with a B.S. in Kinesiology and quickly established herself as one of the top group instructors all while both maintaining a full-time one-on-one client base. Both eventually broke out on their own to become entrepreneurs in the Bay Area fitness scene.

For the last 15 years, Omar has run a successful private personal training studio, Functional Core Fitness, in Mountain View, CA and Lissy has built community and leadership teaching at Google, Uforia Studios in Palo Alto and LIFT Exercise Studio in San Mateo. 

Lissy and Omar retain their client base through the integrity of their program design and the passion to teach people how to create longevity and bring functional movement back into their lives.

Our goal for Functional Elements is to empower our clients with methodical program design in our Infinity Circuit and allow them to learn how to build a proper strength base with the assistance of a certified trainer when needed. 

In their free time Lissy and Omar enjoy training Brazilian jiu jitsu together and taking their pack of 3 dogs out on the weekends to hike at Fort Funston or go for a swim in Foster City.
