“ What I love most about my job is seeing people living with good health and wellbeing .”
“ I was initially attracted to the fitness industry because I wanted to find something to do during the day while my kids were at school , so I joined a group fitness class at the local gym and I was hooked ! One day , one of the instructors suggested that I consider becoming a group fitness instructor , so I gave it a go , and here I am today – a certified yoga , Pilates and BODYBALANCE instructor ; and I also own a yoga studio called ‘ Sabaidee Yoga ’.“

DAVID LIOW Based in Maroochydore ( QLD ), Dave has always been amazed and intrigued about how the human body works and moves . Some kids grow up wanting to be firefighters and circus performers but Dave always wanted to be a trainer !

“ I ’ ve been doing this for almost 30 years and my career has given me so many great experiences along the way . It ’ s allowed me to travel around the world and work with some outstanding human beings . I love what I do . These days it ’ s about tweaking my roles and practice , both at my centre and also in my education program to make me more effective both in and out of work .”
“ We are in a privileged position to be able to make a bigger impact on our clients ’ health than any other health professional . Be awesome , get stuck into it , and make a difference to their lives !”
