Ben Lucas

Ben grew up in the southern Sydney suburb of Cronulla, where he excelled in athletics, basketball and rugby league during his formative years. Post schooling he went on with his rugby league to play professionally for the Cronulla Sharks, in Brisbane and in Auckland.

Whilst training for an Ultra-marathon in 2010 Ben made the acquaintance of one of Sydney’s leading yoga teachers Kate Kendall. It was this meeting that influenced Ben’s career to change trajectory. He sold his three personal training/fitness businesses in 2012 to commit to a new concept in health.

In March 2013 Flow Athletic opened, bringing a unique mix of strength, fitness and yoga to the marketplace. Ben now spends the majority of his time on the growth of Flow. In 2015 Flow Athletic won the Telstra Start-Up of the year. In the last 12 months the ‘Flow Collective’ has grown from just Flow Athletic Group training studio to Include Flow revive Health and recovery studio and Flow Training Centre Personal Training Studio.

Richie Ivanov

Born in Slovakia in 1981, I played basketball for 20 years and represented my country in 2 world championships. I studied at the Physical Education & Coaching University before I came to Australia in 2002 and I immediately fell in love with this great country.

I have been a personal trainer since 2008 and really enjoy my job. I worked as an outdoor personal and group trainer in the beginning before I got a job at Galileo Personal Training. After that I moved to Vision Personal Training in Mosman in 2010 where I became a Senior Personal Trainer and co-manager. After 6 and a bit years the opportunity came along in 2016 to join Ben, Kate and the team at Flow Athletic and I couldn’t be happier with this move.

Marcus Bradbery

My love for running saw me complete a number of Marathons and Ultra Marathons in my mid 20’s, this love for running now has me finding fulfilment in helping others find the joy in running, like I did. These days I specialise in minimalist running (barefoot) and promote the benefits of foot health and natural running dynamics that come with it. I was lucky enough to have worked with an award winning power lifter in my previous gym who assisted me in developing strength programs specific to running. These programs I have delivered to numerous client who have all seen the amazing benefits that strength work has to their running especially in the specialised field of trail running.

Trail running and hiking is my go to for stress relief so you will often find me with my partner in one of our many National Parks going bush in my spare time.  I have always shared my passion of the outdoors with my clients and have shared many adventures, including one experience of hiking the world famous Overland Track in Tasmanian with 6 clients who I now call close friends, an experience as rewarding for me as it was for them.

Sally Cowan

Hi, I’m ‘Big Sal’! I have been passionate about health and fitness my whole life! Growing up I excelled at Representative Netball, Horse Riding (I’m still a country girl at heart!), and Surf Boat Rowing as a volunteer Surf Life Saver from the age of 15-years old. More recently some of my biggest achievements would be completing numerous triathlons and Ironman races as well as multiple Marathons including the New York Marathon.  
 
My passion for a healthy lifestyle drove me to complete a double degree in Exercise Sports Science and Nutrition Dietetics at the University of Sydney. I began my training career in 2005 as a 19-year-old University student, realising very early on there was nothing else I would rather do as a profession. Since then, I have continued to learn, upskill and be educated as much as possible in all areas of health.  
 
My commitment to the health and wellbeing of my clients encompasses a holistic approach to health for desired vitality in all aspects of their lives. My specialties are vast and versatile and include postural assessment and correction, myofascial release and mobility, fundamental strength training (hi beginners!), kettlebells, strength and conditioning for general population and athletes with a strong focus on females (can also put males through their paces don’t you worry!) pre and post-natal and glutes…. I am all about that booty!

I have been involved in sport my whole life. I played a varsity volleyball in College where I also became the Head Coach for the volleyball team for my province. In College I studied Exercise Science. I also worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer while finishing my studies.

I decided life is short and took a chance on having an adventure in Australia. It brought me to Flow Athletic, which has been the best experience of my life. I love Sydney! It is a city that embraces being healthy and active. I see it at every turn. I continue to learn and grow by working with and helping awesome people. I believe that fitness is a journey. People need to learn to enjoy the experience, not just the destination. Then and only then, will they truly become successful. Everyone can achieve their goals. I just try to give them a little help and make it as fun as possible along the way.
