My Top Strategies For Getting Fit Again (Or For The First Time!)

Thu, November 10, 2016

Life isn't a dress rehearsal, this is it! It's too short and fleeting to never realise your bodies full potential and just how amazing you can feel. If you're looking for reasons to keep pushing on with your exercise routine or you need a helping hand back up on the wagon, this is it! The longer you don’t commit to exercise, the harder it feels to get back to it. These are some mental reset tricks I’ve used personally in the past, and they will work for you too!

The Van Diaries Vlog: Part One!

Tue, November 08, 2016

I am so excited to bring you part one of the Van Diaries Vlog! Timmy and I set off three months ago on the adventure of a lifetime, we packed up our things and bought one way tickets to the USA with plans to make an RV our home and travel through every state! Back in Australia, Tim decided life was too short to let adventure pass him by, so he put his corporate career on hold to travel the world. When we started dating I had no intentions of travelling, but it was only two weeks before he made a suggestion I hadn’t even dared to consider…”Why don’t you come with me?” It turns out that the timing really couldn’t have been more perfect, my online studio 'Pilates By Lisa' would allow me to travel, and I wasn’t about to let the best thing I’ve ever known pass me by. So without even hesitating we started planning our dream trip! We have so far been to 16 different states, with many more to go! WE WANT TO KNOW: What do you want to see? What questions would you like to ask us? We are going to be vlogging every week so tell us what you'd like to know about our trip!

How Pilates Will Change Your Entire Life

Wed, October 26, 2016

Without exaggeration, I truly believed that if everyone did Pilates, the world would be a better, much more pain-free place! When I meet clients who suffer from chronic pain, they've become so accustomed to the pain that they accept it as a part of their life with no idea of how good they can potentially feel! The dull ache in your lower back that won’t go away or the debilitating pain in your hip that makes sitting impossible doesn't have to be the norm! Here’s how Pilates can help you change your life, eliminate pain, strengthen your body and achieve a greater sense of body awareness!

Don’t Let One Bad Day Turn Into A Bad Week

Wed, October 19, 2016

Have you ever beaten yourself up for eating bad food, skipping your workout or giving into temptation? No matter who you are, we all have moments of weakness. Often when you are trying to lose weight and get fit, this leads to punishing yourself for being "bad" and letting that single moment derail you completely because you think it's too late, the damage is already done. This blog is all about intervening those thoughts and creating balance, so you can stay on a steady track and ultimately reach any goal you strive for.
