Liv started Pilates as an integral part of her rowing training. She discovered that there was a link between core strength and spinal health at a young age and this led her to do her Pilates Instructor Training while completing her Bachelor of Business at QUT.  If she’s not in our studios or working hard at Head Office you’ll most likely find her on the beach, Surf Lifesaving with her partner Henry, at the Reds cheering on her favourite team, hanging out with her family or organising some kind of social gathering to keep up her reputation as a social butterfly.
