Lisa Gulley is a certified personal trainer who had great success as a group fitness trainer in the past. She’d even run marathons. Then, along came the kids.

In 2007, after her second son came along, Lisa started Workout Mummy. Her goal was to help other mothers become inspired to work out and develop regular exercise habits. Her blog covers practical topics that are geared towards parents, particularly mothers who spend a lot of time with their children.

Darya incorporates fun and enjoyment into her workout routines and provides practical, simple food advice. She advocates regular activity and monitoring your progress, something that many of us fail to do accurately.
