Be Yourself, But be your best self
Just like our boutique studio, our online studio is just that boutique and personal, without the mass-produced content which is overwhelming. We keep it simple as we know what works! All classes are taught by the founders of body reformers, Liza and Suzanna. Each workout has been carefully created to target specific parts of the body with intense activation focusing on technique to ensure effective, fast and long-term results. Be assured all workouts are safe and appropriate for anyone as levels are provided.
Co-founder / Instructor
I grew up as an active teenager, loving all sports in my home town of Melbourne. I was introduced to the fitness industry during my Year 10 work experience block at school. I remember thinking how great it would be to have a job that kept you fit and healthy, one that you were passionate about and was forever transforming. Upon finishing year 12, I completed my Certificate 3 in Fitness which enabled me to teach freestyle group fitness classes. I was employed as a group fitness manager and expanded my teaching qualifications to include Les Mills body pump and cxworxs.
My love of health and fitness motivated me to combine my role of group fitness manager and teaching of fitness with further study so I entered into a 4 year degree of Bachelor of Applied Science in Physical Education. Upon completion I was employed by a secondary girl’s school teaching Health, Science and Physical Education to years 7-12.
I arrived to the Redcliffe peninsula in 2010 and now have a beautiful family with two boys aged 5 and 4. It was after spending years and years heavily ingrained in the fitness world that I realised one’s body will only take so much! It’s easy while in your 20’s, your 30’s usually brings about its first body niggles and then you receive your true wake up call. Being fit is not about running further or jumping higher, it’s about respecting your body and training smarter. I found Pilates to be the answer – it trains the body as an integrated whole and promotes strength, balanced muscle development as well as flexibility. I am a Studio Pilates International Matwork and Reformer Instructor, and trained in Pilates and Pregnancy. I am also a fully certified Barre Attack instructor.
For me, ‘exercise is more than just physical….it’s therapeutic….it’s a way of life’
Co-founder / Instructor
Dance has always been a passion of mine; from a young age I competed in a number of international dance competitions, worked as a Show Girl overseas, a cheerleader, and dance teacher in both Sydney and Brisbane. After moving to Queensland 15 years ago I went on to study an Associate Diploma in Marketing followed by a Post Graduate Certificate at QUT in Business Marketing whilst pursuing a career as a Marketing Manager. I am now a busy mum of 4 beautiful children with a passion and drive for health and fitness, I have always juggled my role as a mother, with work and exercise, which was more for my mental wellbeing sometimes!
After experiencing a neck injury and told spinal surgery was my only option I had to look for alternatives to staying strong and fit without the high impact exercise classes I had become accustomed to. I found Barre, which reignited my love of dance, and Pilates to be the answer to a low impact but highly effective exercise that has helped me not only physically but also mentally.
After experiencing the amazing results myself, feeling the strongest I have ever been and avoiding surgery I left my Marketing career and became a qualified Booty Barre and Pilates instructor and love sharing these amazing workouts with others.
I believe fitness is a life long commitment to being your best self so lets enjoy the process and live the best life we can!
