David Lee began life on rather precarious footing. He was born to a single mother in a poor area of Seoul, South Korea and, as a small child, suffered from food allergies and poor digestion. Luckily for him, a mentor in Canada sponsored Lee and his mother and sister and taught them about nutrition and the healing power of whole foods. Soon afterward, a young Lee was outlining his own nutrition regimens, and he eventually even managed to overcome his chronic ailments without the help of a doctor or a genie.
Today, David applies this spirit of innovation in his professional life as a personal trainer, nutritionist, and holistic practitioner. Drawing from more than 20 years of experience, he has pioneered Tai Body, a workout that incorporates Thai boxing movements with aerobic exercises, meditation, and stretching. He also developed a system of exercises and nutritional packages known as the Vital Health System, which gradually strengthen beginners’ cores so they can begin to tackle more advanced exercises, such as transforming into a treadmill. As participants work to obtain healthier lifestyles, the nutritional counseling helps increase energy levels by encouraging smarter food choices.
