Project Description

Hi.  I’m Brendan. My job at Achieve Exercise Physiologists is to develop exercise interventions for individuals with a broad range of health conditions, whether those health conditions are developing or pre-existing. The aim of the exercise interventions I prescribe is to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury, and assist in maintaining or restoring the individual’s optimal physical function, health, or wellness. These interventions are exercise based and include health and physical activity education, support, and advice, with a focus on behavioral change to aid my clients in self-managing their own health.

MORE ABOUT ME

Something I see regularly working as an exercise physiologist is that people understand and acknowledge that exercise is beneficial, but they lack the knowledge and understanding of the types and more importantly the amount of exercise they need to be completing weekly for health benefits. Once they develop this knowledge and understanding I really see them progressing towards their achieving their goals.

4-year Clinical Exercise Physiology degree from the Queensland University of Technology

The thing I most enjoy about working at Achieve is the supportive and friendly environment, where both clients and staff encourage and support each other while working towards their goals.

My background in elite level swimming whilst at school and university is what first piqued my interest in how the human body functions and works. Whilst I was training, I suffered a pars fracture of my lower back, I worked closely with a physiotherapist and exercise physiologist to help me return to training and competition, this experience highlighted to me how exercise can be used for injury rehabilitation. My sporting background and university degree has expanded knowledge and passion for how exercise can benefit not only athletes, but also its many uses for managing health conditions and improving individual’s quality of life.

Loyalty, determination, and adaptability.
