Bodybuilding deputy principal sues gym and school

A DEPUTY principal who has won a string of body building titles is reportedly suing both her employer and her gym over separate accidents

Lisa Maree Cutter, 41, is believed to have launched a $200,000 compensation case against the State Government, claiming her arms were injured when she had to lift a heavy water cooler at Meridan State College.

She is also seeking $200,000 in a separate case against the Goodlife gym at Caloundra, claiming she was injured when she slipped in leaking water while using one of its machines.

In her action against the government, Ms Cutter claims she was injured when moving a "10 gallon water cooler" from a filing cabinet at the school in February.

Her claim against Goodlife gym relates to an accident in March 2011, when she says her feet slipped from underneath her while she was on a hack squat machine.

She says she suffered an injury to her lower back and coccyx and is claiming for economic loss, medical, physiotherapy, occupational therapy expenses, and $500-a-year gym membership.

The mother of three recently won a title at the INBA Australian Natural Physique Championships.

The State Government and Goodlife Operations are yet to file defences to the claims.
