Regardless of whether you have tried reformer pilates or not, the VIVE ACTIVE concept is one that will delight even the most skeptical of people. The tough workout and unique interior has seen VIVE ACTIVE amass an impressive celebrity following from Ironman Champion, Kendrick Louis and TV Personality Carissa Walford to Active Mum and presenter Erica Heynatz.
VIVE ACTIVE made waves in the northern beaches in 2017 when it turned the tables on traditional reformer Pilates with the opening of its premiere studio. Studios are kitted out with state-of-the-art lighting, mirrored ceilings, rock star trainers and epic beats pumping through their premium sound system, the classes are an addictive sensory experience. No two sessions are the same, so the trainers keep your body guessing, making it impossible not to achieve results; while also ensuring clients don’t get bored, which is often a challenge for Pilates-style workouts.
The concept was founded by nutritionist and author, Louise Keats and entrepreneur, John Keats.
“Pilates can be quite polarising to many people, with a perception it can be slow and tedious,” says founder, John Keats. “We felt we could disrupt the traditional format and create a new, challenging yet insanely fun 50-minute workout, created to be highly effective for achieving optimal physical and mental outcomes.”
On top of creating the nation’s premium fitness experience, VIVE ACTIVE have also introduced a wellness seminar series, to keep their community optimised in every facet of their life. The program, VIVE AFTER DARK, involves a free monthly evening where Vive members get to hear from expert speakers on a range of topics including nutrition, meditation, gut health, muscle release and high-performance mindset. “It’s an opportunity for our Vivers to come together and cement new friendships while also learning about a topic that can dramatically improve their health” says co-founder Louise Keats.
With plans to open ten studios in the next five years, the Vive team is set to convert men and women from Australia and beyond. The training environment has been successfully developed to appeal to both genders equally and for the long-term, with clients calling out the incredible physical and mental results they see for themselves.
