Suddenly our body is a vessel, our nutrition needs are not just our own and what we eat baby will beneﬁt from also.Read More
With December soon upon us and Christmas just around the corner we are reaching that time of year when our self-restraint is constantly tested. Christmas is a time to be enjoyed, but its quite easy to take advantage of the silly season and set yourself back an entire month! So here are my key tips to navigating this time of year!Read More
Dynamic stretching should be one of the main focuses in your warm up, this focuses on elevating our core and muscle temperature and preparing the body for training.Read More
It seems simple right? Just eat when you’re hungry. Unfortunately, it is rarely this simple. Life happens, and stress and hormones want to play a different game.Read More

It’s no secret; we are social creatures. We love to come together and we love to bond. In groups, in pairs, in large communities. But what happens when we are trying to make a conscious effort to become healthier in our lives and we are constantly bombarded with invites out to vineyard trips, long lunches, dinner and drinks with the girls?!Read More
Waking up is the FIRST thing on the list of things you’ll do in a day. Number One on a long list of things to check off… If we can’t even do that, what does that say about us?Read More
Have you ever sat down and really thought about your values? As in, literally listed down the things that are important to you, the people that are important to you and who you want to be in this life. It’s interesting when we do that task, how often the way we are living our lives is completely out of sync with what our values actually are.Read More
Ok, so this type of training is somewhat intense. It requires you to train like an athlete. We aren’t in the business of just getting women ‘to work out”. The type of training we do is tough. Lifting weights, conditioning and learning new skills. All the time. Every day there is something new. If there isn’t something new there’s someone new! New faces and friends to meet constantly!Read More
It’s one thing to start training. It’s another thing to begin a training program like this one where you are trying to get stronger, fitter and learn new skills every day. The training program we engage in is challenging in every way. It requires you to be at your optimal physical level day in, day out.Read More

Did you know that the fitness industry is the most fickle and has an exceptionally high turnover?! Sadly, most people chop and change their training along with the latest fad diet.
This is where Lissome is different.Read More
Yep. It takes effort. Eating real, wholesome food requires going to the shops and buying fresh food each week, every few days even! Then you have to prepare it and cook it. Whether you like to prepare food at the beginning of each week or not is totally up to you, either way, it takes time and effort to make sure that you always have food, ready to go and grab at any time.Read More
Experience lower back pain?
Hips stuck back at the bottom of the squat?
Knees caving in while squatting?
You prob’s don't know how to use your butt properly...OR it's just sitting there dormant = bad.Read More
So, every girl’s first few weeks/months at Lissome generally goes the same way…
You turn up. You have no idea what’s happening. What the blip does AMRAP mean? What’s a Toe To Bar? How on earth do I hold this heavy barbell thingy?!Read More
It’s the most frustrating thing… You finally get on a roll with your training and BAM, you injure yourself! It’s always at the most annoying and inconvenient times! But don’t worry, its happened to us all and it isn’t a reason to STOP!Read More
It's really important that you are somewhat intrinsically motivated to come along, even on your own. If you’ve ever experienced that day when “so and so” wasn’t at the gym when you expected her to be, and you just felt flat, lonely and “not into it”... This isn’t a good thing. It’s really ideal to balance these motivators out so that you have a little bit of both.Read More
Recovery should come hand in hand with training.Read More
