Lisa's goal for every class is to develop functional movement and to build long strong muscles
Lisa formed her passion for Pilates at an early age when competing in TaeKwondo and Coastal Rowing, using Pilates moves unknowingly in flexibility and mobility training.
Years of competitive sport sparked a never ending interest in the human body and how it responds to nutrition and exercise. This lead to Lisa's completion of a BSc in Sport & Exercise Management in UCD and following on from this she completed a Personal Training and Pilates Course in UCD.
She quickly realised that Pilates combined everything she always did from sports- strength, conditioning, flexibility, balance, injury prevention and rehabilitation. She also is a strong believer of mindfulness for positive mental health and uses Pilates as a tool when training clients with stressful lifestyles.
In spring 2016, Lisa competed in her first Fitness Model Competition and won Miss Body Transformation Ireland 2016.
She credits Pilates for providing her with long lean muscles which the judges score highly in such competitions. Her years of experience in competitive sport, and in preparation for physique modelling mean that she can empathise and relate to your struggles on your fitness journey and she can help motivate and conquer any set backs with realistic and achievable tips and advice.
Lisa's goal for every class is to develop functional movement and to build long strong muscles, even the tiny ones! She aims to make sure you break a sweat but still leave with a smile on your face - expect a few terrible jokes thrown into every class!
As a lover of convenient food this is one the easiest dishes I make.
I seriously over indulged over Christmas!I ate everything and anything that was going. All the chocolate, crisps, biscuits and drank maybe a little too much gin.
I get bored really easily. Foam rolling and stretching are not my friends so I know classes are my best way to go.
This is one of my favourite healthy comfort food to make and it is easy and fast to do too so it is perfect for busy families. A way to feel like you are having a treat without the badness…….you can’t get better that that!
