As a passionate healthy lifestyle advocate, she believes everyone can benefit from pilates exercises, and offering an online video based program has allowed her to service people of all ages around the world. When you watch her videos her vitality for life and passion for pilates certainly shines through. We are excited to be one of the sponsors for her current Spring into Summer Challenge, so we decided to ask her a few questions to get to know her and her business better.
Whilst studying for my Degree in Journalism at Griffith University, I also completed my Certificate 3 & 4 in Fitness. Ever since a young age I had always been interested in fitness & health and one of my majors at University was exercise science. The story of Joseph Pilates had always intrigued me, therefore, after passing all my fitness qualifications, the next obvious step for me was to get my Pilates qualifications. I did this and started a small community class for locals and at the same time hoped to financially help to make ends meet. The class was a resounding success. I had a lot of requests for more classes, but with limited time and funds the idea of bringing my classes to people online was born. How convenient would it be to not have to leave home to be able to workout, or to be able to take your workouts with you to work or on holidays? Suddenly a whole new world would open up for stay at home mums, the elderly or anyone who may be intimidated by attending a live class. Pilates by Lisa was born and has never looked back.
The amazing thing about Pilates is that anyone, no matter their age, size or fitness level, can take part and reap the incredible benefits. The results are undeniable, it’s effective and it can be as challenging or as gentle as you like due to the versatility of each exercise. Pilates exercises dramatically strengthen the core and pelvic floor, providing stability, strength and support for the spine. So not only will you have a lean, toned figure, but it also increases the longevity of your joints and eliminates aches and pains so you can exercise forever! If you want amazing posture, strength, balance, flexibility and a toned, taut figure, then Pilates is for you!
Pilates is my focus in life but away from the studio I just like to chill. Walks on the beach with my partner Tim and our mini Daschaund Diggity and sitting with a coffee at our local café and watching the world go by are my favourite downtime things to do. I also love playing my piano. I started playing when I was five years old and it is my greatest stress reliever. (I have also been known to watch an episode or two of Keeping Up With The Kardashians!)
I have been a Rosehip Oil advocate for many years. It was recommended to me by a hairdresser for my skincare when I about 13 years old. She said it was the only thing that she used on her hands to combat the many hair chemicals she was handling every day. I tried it and have never looked back.
I love simply using the pure RosehipPLUS Rosehip Oil straight from the bottle on my face, neck and across my chest and shoulders. It feels beautiful on my skin and smells divine. The compact RosehipPLUS oil with the roller is great for my lips. We film outdoors a LOT and I smother my lips with it every morning. Rosehip Oil cleanser is just a beautiful way to cleanse my skin. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, clean, soft and supple. I share why I love the RosehipPLUS range HERE.
I have very sensitive skin that reacts to anything containing perfumes, additives and any nasties. I love nourishing my skin with healthy, natural products. It’s important to look after your skin from the inside but really important to look after it from the outside as well. RosehipPLUS products never, ever make my skin breakout or feel itchy or rashy. It leaves my skin radiant, supple and just glowing.
My plan for the future and the future of Pilates by Lisa is to keep helping women and men around the world become the best version of themselves and break down the barriers. Fitness should be affordable, accessible and available to everyone, no matter what. Regardless of age, size, ability, income, nationality or gender, we aim to make our online workouts a service that makes everyone feel a part of a community. Studio classes can be extremely expensive, exclusive, intimidating and out of reach for many. We offer a free 10 day trial to our online classes, so it’s the perfect way to sample them if you’re interested in giving Pilates a try! Our workouts are great for all levels, there is so much variety to choose from, and they are truly effective. We have an exciting Spring Into Summer Challenge running at the moment which is free to all members and some excellent new additions coming to the website very soon! We are all very excited for the future of Pilates By Lisa!
