ACCREDITED EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST
Chris has joined the team as our new Accredited Exercise Physiologist! Chris grew up and still currently lives in the Redlands which is located on the south east of Brisbane. Being one of seven kids and only one of two boys (do the math), Chris comes from a very big family and is naturally a very family orientated person. Sport has always been a major part of Chris’ life, whether it was playing recreationally or competitively Chris was never far from the field or a ball. Don’t hold it against him but he is a proud Manchester United and Brisbane Broncos supporter.
Being heavily involved in sport throughout his childhood, it only made sense that Chris would go on to complete his Diploma of Fitness once he finished school. Chris’s passion and desire to learn more about the human body grew after completing his diploma, which eventually led him to complete his Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology at QUT. Since graduating, Chris has had the pleasure of helping several clients who are after:
• General health and well-being
• Rehabilitation physiotherapy to manage and recover from an injury (minor soft tissue to pre-and post-operative)
• Chronic disease management (diabetes, CVD, cancer etc.)
• Long-term athletic development for youth
• Pre-season and In-season strength and conditioning for a variety of sporting teams
Whether it’s being able to perform normal activities of daily living, returning to optimal function or being able to compete at your best, Chris is a major driver of providing an approach that is individual to the client. Whether the emphasis is on the gym, home or the training pitch, a plan can be made for you to move forward.
Chris’s life outside of Pivotal Motion
Chris is currently in the final process of completing his Masters in Research where his research topic is on the impact of lower limb muscle size on sprint performance. If you’re looking for Chris and he isn’t at work or studying, you can most likely find him spending time with his kelpie, training at the gym, or out and about camping and 4WDing.
