Lisa's goal for every class is to develop functional movement and to build long strong muscles
Lisa has been working at Platinum Pilates since September 2016. Since joining the Team, Lisa has worked in every studio and taught clients from all backgrounds and abilities. Lisa's goal in every class is to insure everyone is able to do every exercise.
Originally from West Cork,with a background in Rowing and Tea Kwon Do, Lisa studied Sport & Exercise Management in UCD. After she finished her studies, Lisa worked as a Sales & Marketing Executive in the Fitness Industry for 3 years. Lisa always felt like the athlete who was dying to be the coach and give something back to the fitness industry. After 2 years she began a Personal Trainer course. As soon as it was finished she made the switch and began working at Platinum Pilates.
Lisa's classes focus on movement. She likes to insure everyone can keep moving. Her classes offer a lot of modifications, so someone with an injury or even a beginner can still keep moving through the whole class. She hopes that clients get some time to relax. both mentally and physically, and leave the studio with a smile on their face.
Outside of the studio, life for Lisa is still pretty much all fitness related. She enjoys Cross Fit Classes a few times per week and everyday will consist of a walk in the park with Lucy, her dog. Lisa also loves cooking. She will spend a lot of free time preparing meals or testing recipes. She'll use any occasion she can find to bake cakes, cookies, pies anything bold for friends and family.
This week was busy but I managed to stay on track despite the madness.
Like everyone, I am having ups and downs, but staying consistent is the key.
This week has been my best week yet. I hit all my training goals
It is the first real week I felt I was moving forward with my goals.
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!
Lisa’s funny and touching tribute her to her Mam!
This year instead of attempting to give something up for Lent Lisa has decided to take on some new healthy habits.
