You may recognise me from the telly, as a reporter for 1 news- so I’m used to a microphone, whether it’s reporting, or at a wedding. I absolutely love my job in journalism. I’m so lucky to work with so many talented people, and to get the chance to meet amazing people doing amazing things every day- and better yet, I get to share their stories with the world. My passion is having the opportunity to tell all sorts of stories, about all sorts of people, in all sorts of places!

LISA FONG, Move it Mama

Fitness: How this habit can improve your mental health 

Lisa is the Founder of Move it Mama, and the winner of the 2019 Her Own Boss award. She is the mother of four little boys, and a wife to husband Dan. She is a teacher by trade, but now Move it Mama is her full-time business. 


Move it Mama was born out of a need to exercise. Lisa needed to exercise to be on top of her game; a better mother, sister, wife, friend and so on.  As a busy mother of four boys and on one income, she also didn't have the time or money for a gym membership. This is why she started working out at home. She needed her exercise regime to be simple, affordable, accessible and achievable; all of which she is committed to delivering with Move it Mama.


‘I have been lucky enough to pursue a massive dream of mine, helping others feel better about their lives by sharing my workouts and teaching people that exercise really is quite simple.’
