HardCORE Fitness

Balanced mind in a balanced body

Hard 'CORE' Fitness is all about creating strong functioning CORES - the powerhouse of the body! Want to get rid of that lower belly pouch, eliminate back pain or improve posture?! Lisa has a unique individualised approach to teaching, her extensive knowledge of corrective exercise, strong pilates background, and her personal experience with a changing body as a new mum give her a broad understanding to draw from. 

What started out as a hobby running the occasional CHRISTCHURCH, NZ bootcamp class and getting friends together to workout has transformed into a full time business, offering a variety of classes each week, one on one training sessions and ONLINE workouts. Our supportive, friendly environment makes every training session an enjoyable one that our team look forward to.. Lisa's love of exercise is contagious and a fundamental reason for our members success.

Our mission is to make functional fitness and mobility training accessible to everyone, using suitably scaled movement progressions. Our proven results-based workouts will be constantly varied, fun and challenging, focusing on technical form and identifying mobility issues. 

... Don't be fooled by the name 'Hardcore' - Lisa is extremely good at what she does and recognises the need to train individuals based on their own abilities and requirements. LOW IMPACT OPTIONS are always available, you do not have to run or jump in these classes if that is not where you are at on the day. Her thorough pre screen assessment will help you identify any issues, like lack of sleep, a weak core, or pelvic floor dysfunction, that may benefit from a gentler approach. Completely confidential and with utmost discretion, she will train you to get the maximum benefits of your time - SAFELY.

...What I like in particular is that there are modifications for all, the accessibility is fantastic, it has a community feel dispite being online, and lastly Lisa comes up with so many varying workouts you never get bored nor do they become easier as you gain strength...

Julia -

Pre and Postnatal classes

...I can now exercise more and push myself harder knowing I'm breathing and engaging correctly - I can even run and jump which for a while there after having my second child I never thought I'd do again. Lisa is passionate about what she does and shows a genuine interest in each individuals progress... 

Gemma -

ONLINE Core Recovery

...Her pelvic floor and core reconnection exercises have been a game changer. My core muscles started to feel stronger after the first few sessions and my pelvic floor control has improved significantly...
