Lisa Raffay

As a business owner, personal trainer, and nutritionist, I have owned the House of Fitness for 21 years in the same location on PCH in Corona Del Mar. I attended Farnborough College in England and also OCC to complete their Personal Training and Sports Management program. I was part owner of Nutritionalysis, developing nutritional programs which were tailor made to the client's needs.

The key to my success has been providing a fun and safe environment with highly educated Personal Trainers, who have extensive experience in both personal training, physical therapy and who are all athletes themselves.

I am originally from Budapest, Hungary. I played soccer in Hungary as a semi-professional for five years. I went to Physical Therapy school at the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and graduated with a Master's degree in Physical Therapy. After graduating, I worked for the HealthSouth Rehab Center in Arlington, Texas and later moved to Newport Beach, where I started the Physical Therapy of Newport in 2000.

Physical Therapy of Newport specializes in orthopedic rehab, but also works with a variety of neurological injuries. We also take a number of medical plans.

I work with my clients based on their goals and what they want to achieve, and we always make it happen. I have been called the ‘energizer bunny’ my whole life and I bring that energy to my clients in each training session. Fun workouts and a fun time!

Whatever your fitness goals, with the proper motivation, healthy nutrition and little hard work, you can achieve them.
