Meet the trainers
Olivia “Liv” Chamberland I began my fitness teaching career at age 22, while competing in fitness competitions and triathlons, and assisting in cutting-edge exercise research. I opened my first fitness studio in 2009 in ZAMFORIA, the t-shirt boutique I own with my younger brother Jonathan. I absolutely get a rush out of helping people succeed. I am 110% passionate about LivFitness Wellness Boutique and am driven to help you transform your life. My clients say that I am the toughest sweetheart you will ever meet. I love building relationships with every single one of my clients, creating an amazing forum for success and keeping life healthy and exciting.
Love & Strength, Liv

Debbie Russell I started my professional carrier in fitness in 2009. Being a gymnast for 11 years and always involved in physical activity since a young age, I decided to focus my knowledge and determination into personal training to help others feel good about themselves and live a healthier life style. My goal is to bring out the most in you through my training, not just with your time with me but, in your everyday activities. Most people don't like coming out of there comfort zone and this is were I come in as a trainer; I push them through and the outcome every time makes me so happy. I love witnessing my clients growth into individuals with confidence.
YES you are strong and YES you can do it

Deidre O'Connor I have been working in the fitness industry since 2008, originally as a Zumba instructor. There is nothing like teaching to a room full of happy, eager students! I love the feeling that someone's day was made better by taking my class. I branched off from Zumba in 2013 and began personal training. I am committed to my clients. I want to help change their bodies and minds by training and educating them on lifestyle changes to reach their goals .

Kara Bligh I have been training, motivating and influencing clients through Pilates group classes, private instruction and social media for over ten years. I pride myself in my ability to instruct classes that are both fun and functional and for any level/ability. What I love most about Pilates is that it makes you become a better mover. With postural alignment, core strength and increased flexibility, you will walk out of class with greater ease, decreased aches and pains and feeling energized! You'll become a better runner, dancer, hiker, (whatever it is you love to do) because you will use your body more efficiently.
Three years ago, I had my first son and three months ago I had another one. One of the classes I will be teaching is called Baby Mama Pilates... a mat class designed for mama and baby to take together. I think it's really important to rehab your body correctly after having a baby and this class will do just that, along with the opportunity to bond with your baby and other mama's.
If you've never tried Pilates I encourage you to give it a try. Hope to see you on your mat!
Let's build strong bodies while creating a beautiful mind, body and spirit.
Christine Way- Cotter My yoga journey began 20 years ago. As a massage therapist, the physical and emotional demands were challenging at times, so a friend recommended I try a yoga class, the antidote for stress relief! After, I felt more flexible, stronger, and more in balance on and off the mat in my daily life! I wanted to help my clients achieve a better quality of life by helping them feel better in their bodies. Yoga training was the perfect fit. I immersed myself in a month long, 200 hour training, where I lived on campus at The Kripalu Center for Healing Arts in the Berkshires. I have 27 years experience in the healing arts.
