Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Pilates Instructor
What is Exercise Physiology?
Exercise physiology is the scientific study of the body, how it works and how it responds to exercise.
I clinically assess your current physical activity and functional capacity so that I can prescribe effective exercise programs to achieve your health goals. Your goals may include rehabilitation of injuries, relief from persistent pain, chronic health conditions, mental health and general wellbeing. I also have a special interest in women's health issues.
Who could it benefit?
Anyone who would like to improve and better manage issues with:
• heart health, mental health and chronic kidney disease
• weight loss and diabetes
• cancer recovery and treatments
• neurological conditions including MS and stroke recovery
• respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD
• joint and muscle pain including arthritis and injuries
How can it help you?
I treat each client as a unique individual and prescribe exercise that clinically meets their needs, abilities and health and wellbeing goals. I understand the challenges in changing behaviours and forming new habits. I work closely with you to find the activities that meet your clinical requirements and support you to confidently manage these changes to meet your wellbeing goals.
After having 4 children, I decided it was time to find and follow my passion. I returned to university and qualified as an Exercise Physiologist at the University of Canberra. During this time I worked at the Curves Gym as a circuit and weight loss coach and had so much fun teaching group exercise. I also studied Pilates during this time and now teach group sessions every week. I am amazed at how often I use the Pilates techniques in my exercise prescription for rehabilitation.
I currently see my Exercise Physiology Clients at Forrest Chiropractic, a local private practice and I can help you book in. I can also provide Telehealth sessions if that is more convenient for you.

My vision is to empower my clients with the skills, knowledge and confidence to actively manage their own health and well being. I know from experience that you need to find the activity you love and do more of that. I also know that sometimes it is hard to know what to do. That is where I can help you stay safe and achieve your goals with the right exercises at the right intensity and volume. Book in for a free 10 minute consultation if you need more information.
