Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | Q&A - LISA MOR­GAN Per­sonal trainer and well­ness ex­pert

As the owner of Mor­gan­ics Sea­sonal Liv­ing Noosa, Lisa Mor­gan knows all things health. She’s been work­ing within the fit­ness in­dus­try for the past 30 years and in that time, she has taken on a range of roles in­clud­ing per­sonal trainer, gym owner, life coach and fit­ness blog­ger.

Lisa’s unique ap­proach to well-be­ing and life­style is what she is known for around the Sun­shine Coast.

Many lo­cal res­i­dents visit Lisa’s store and on­line blog for healthy recipe ideas and nu­tri­tion tips. One day she hopes to use her knowl­edge to write a book.

Favourite time of day and why?

Early morn­ing, I am usu­ally at the river train­ing with my clients or on the beach walk­ing Jet, my dog.

Ei­ther way, I feel like I have struck it lucky with my life­style, liv­ing in Noosa.

What ex­cites you?

Mu­sic, art, dance, food – if done well, they are usu­ally cre­ated with deep pas­sion, which is re­ally what ex­cites me.

Oh, and also if I see a group of cocker spaniels con­gre­gat­ing on a walk, that will ex­cite me too.

Favourite sport? Player or spec­ta­tor? To watch, it is ten­nis. I do not play a sport per se but be­ing a per­sonal trainer, I am al­ways into fit­ness. Last year, I took a team and com­peted in the True Grit Chal­lenge which was great fun.

Best child­hood mem­ory?

Christ­mas in the cold with my fam­ily, Bing Crosby on TV, tur­key in the oven and Top of the Pops at 2pm.

Where were you born? London.

Where would you like to hol­i­day? France and Italy. I have not been there for years and would love to do a road trip me­an­der­ing among the vine­yards and sun­flower fields in an open-top car.

Cats or dogs? Do you have a pet? Dog crazy! I have only one now, Jet, af­ter los­ing my and Jet’s best friend Molly ear­lier this year.

Who are your heroes?

Peo­ple who live their own truth and are not in­flu­enced by the un­re­al­is­tic, su­per­fi­cial ex­pec­ta­tions that are put upon us. Dream job?

Writer and my cur­rent job (com­bined).

What will you be do­ing in 10 years? Hope­fully driv­ing around Europe liv­ing off the pro­ceeds of my best-sell­ing book. What’s the best thing about liv­ing on the Sun­shine Coast?

Wak­ing up sur­rounded by na­ture ev­ery day.

It’s the beaches, the healthy life­style, the good restau­rants and the sun­shine.
