Health and Fitness

My passion for health and fitness stemmed from my 14 year gymnastics career. Being active was ingrained in my lifestyle from a young age, it was my job to train every day. Since retiring after the London Olympics I discovered that exercising was an important aspect of my life in order for my mind to stay happy, alert and motivated towards achieving future goals.

 

I have now completed a Master in Clinical Exercise physiology (Rehabilitation), working at two different locations throughout Melbourne as an Exercise physiologist.

 

The role of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP):

AEPs are allied health professionals and specialise in clinical exercise prescription and the delivery of exercise and lifestyle modification programs for people at risk of, or living with chronic conditions or injuries.

Regular physical activity, at the correct intensity is so powerful in maintaining and improving health that it is now prescribed, just as medicine is

 

Whether you are an elite athlete, or wishing to improve your general health and wellbeing, I believe everyone deserves to achieve optimum health. By working collaboratively with other health professionals, this can be accomplished.
