Meet Lisa



Thank you so much for stopping by!

I'm Lisa Raleigh - a certified personal trainer, nutrition coach and life coach with a passion for wellness. I've been an exercise specialist for 18 years and I love what I do. Some of my key focus areas are to help people with digestion issues and gut health, stress management, improved strength and fitness, obesity management and just simply demonstrating how easy it can be to live a balanced, healthy life that's sustainable. I don't believe in quick fixes or short cuts, but I do believe in hard work and dedication and it's my life's mission to help people realise their full potential and thrive!

I've been lucky enough to enjoy a fulfilling career which started with me in my little white Corsa, driving around to people's houses as a mobile personal trainer. I then started my own gym franchise, and my big break was when I was asked to be the blue team trainer on SA’s The Biggest Loser. Since then, I was asked to be a co-presenter on Doctor’s Orders as well as the health and wellness consultant on SABC 3’s daily morning show - Expresso, which I enjoyed for a few years.
In 2014, after producing 60 episodes of Keep It Real, my own show which aired on ETV's Sunrise Show, and producing and presenting over 200 episodes for Expresso and Doctor's Orders, I had the chance to self-produce a new show titled ‘101 Exercises to Try Before you Die’ and 101 World Cups for Trace Sports Stars, which aired in over 107 countries in 11 different languages. Tv work is something I love because you can reach millions of people and hopefully change someone's life by giving them little pieces of information every morning or afternoon, which could improve their day, right then and there. 

I'm truly passionate about bringing health to the public, which is why I started THE LIVERIGHT FOUNDATION, a non-profit organization that blankets various projects. SUNfit was the first of these, which I hosted for nine years, before the government asked my brand to step on board in the running of 25 Go Jozi Healthy Lifestyle Street Fairs, that took place in April and May, 2015.

And with the aim to reach even more people and help them transform their lives, I launched the well i am challenge. Here, corporates and consumers could enter an online holistic 13-week wellness transformation challenge with all the tools and skills they needed to create life-long change. My team and I also started an online community of resources to keep everyone motivated. well i am’s sixth challenge was completed in November 2016 and we managed to successfully help thousands of people transform their lives and shed many kilos in the process. This project is something I'll always be proud of. 

Besides tevelision and radio, I'm also a keen writer. In 2011, I co-authored a book with Darren Scott, called No Fries On Us, and since then I've enjoyed writing for newspapers and magazines, as well for my own blog which you'll find right here on my website.

As a new mom, I know first-hand how tricky it is to get your body back after pregnancy and birth, which is why I spent over 2 years working on a holistic nutrition and exercise programme which you'll find in my first self-published ebook titled My Body Back. For this ebook, I collaborated with a few other experts in the wellness space, who, like me, are dedicated to helping moms get their bodies back in shape slowly, safely and sustainably. This exciting ebook is due to launch later this year. I've also written my second book, called the Belly Book which will launch in 2020. This book is ideal for men and women and it's all about trageting that stubborn belly fat which can be harmful to your health.

Since becoming a mom, I also discovered the true power of rebounding - an exercise modality I'm truly passionate about as I feel fitter and stronger than ever before. You can read all about my rebounding journey here, as well as the endless benefits this exercise has to offer, here. There's a reason why NASA puts their astronauts on a 12-week rebounding programme soon after returning from space missions.

I would love you to experience the same life-changing benefits of rebounding, which is why I've recently launched my own brand of rebounders, plus a range of at-home rebounding workouts and accessories so that you can enjoy bouncing in the comfort of your own home in your pyjamas if you want! Head on over to my Online Store, where you'll find everything you need to start your wellness journey, including my brand new organic drink mix - Super Scoop. This nutritious drink is packed with over 50 organic fruit and veg extracts to fill in the nutrition gaps for busy families. I can't wait for you to try it!

I also teach rebounding classes in Parkhurst, Johannesburg - as well as online. My online classes are called bounti classes and I have a wide range of options for you to choose from. Read all about them here.
