The owner is Misha Star alias Missy Gifford who left Oregon with out paying the people she owed money to. She is a scam, beware. She charges an exorbinate amt of money for weight loss program. She did n't even pay here employees or rent.

    Missy owned my horse who was sold behind my back 8 years ago by my father. She was talking to me and really sweet and was telling me all about my boy and then she just stopped talking, blocked me and deleted me. Does ANYONE know how to get ahold of her?

    I'm glad you wrote Taylor. I've know your dad and stepmom from the gym way back when they were in Beaverton years ago. I was concerned when I went looking for Missy and found the complaints above. I consider Missy a friend and found it hard to believe what was being said. I'm glad you wrote and cleared it up. I haven't seen or talked to her in quite awhile, obviously, but over the weekend I happened to go by the Lake O gym and drove in to see if she was still there. I could tell by the empty rooms that she was not so I went searching for her on the web. I found this page. I'm so glad things are not as was described by that first post. Missy, if you read this, give me a call sometime or write and let me know how you're doing. I hope you still have my address somewhere. I wish you the best! __Charlotte

    I too know Missy, her family and her business. They are awesome giving people who got screwed. No one is perfect and they really did well under the terrible circumstances. They are working hard to rebuild and they continue to grow.

    Missy is my step mom.
    and no i am not only posting this because of that, i want to say every story has two sides.. what most people don't know is that an employ of hers went through all er emails and pretended to be her. not only did she invade Missy's privacy but she also brought the business under. when we found out and fired her she went crazy a sued us because we couldn't pay all her shares back at once.. go figure we didn't have any money because of what she did at first. because of the money loss we were unable to pay anyone.. and we were forced to claim bankruptcy. if we had the money and the choice we would have stayed in Oregon, and payed everyone back.. not that we really owed that many people money. Missy is not a scam and the price is reasonable, if you ask people that have lost over 200 pounds with her. she has saved so many people from dying because of illnesses she was able to cure by helping them with their diets. she tried with her best intentions, sometimes things just don't go as planed. but if you really knew Missy and the whole story you would understand.
