Accredited Exercise Physiologist / Exercise Scientist

I’m so sick of PAIN!!!! So I thought I’d try get rid of it for as many people as possible. Interestingly the vast majority of pain can be relieved fairly easily (with the right help of course) but we tend to think that pain is something that we just have to live with. I really don’t think a life of pain is anyway to live so I have studied the mechanics of the body extensively. This has allowed me to understand how to best get you moving again with as little pain as possible (hopefully none). I believe in an interactive and education based treatment style, this allows the client to understand their condition and thus take control of their life rather than just blindly doing exercises with no explanation or reasoning. Not only will you be in less pain but you will be given the tools to keep yourself out of pain.

I have been lucky enough to have worked with chronic pain specialists, GP’s, musculoskeletal specialists and many more health professions. This has given me invaluable information about how to approach clients from many different perspectives.

Apart from my work commitments I do actually have a life. I spend most of my weekends wakeboarding with my mates. Wakeboarding is hard work physically and a 5 minute turn feels like an hour of gym work on your body, but it’s even harder to get the smile off my face after a great ride.

"Through the use of evidence based exercise prescription, we can treat a number of chronic health conditions as well as goal specific personalised training. We offer patient centered treatment and believe that education is the best way to set our clients up for long term success, no matter what their goal."
