Clare Goss

Exercise Physiologist

I graduated from the University of Tasmania in mid-2017 after completing an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science followed by a Professional Honours year studying clinical Exercise Physiology.

Since graduating I have worked in various private practice clinics in Hobart, and most recently opened my own business within a private gym setting. I work with a wide range of health conditions and with people from a variety of backgrounds. My own passion for sport and activity, including soccer, touch football and general health management, have guided my studies and career pathway so far and I look forward to continuing to develop and grow over the years.

I am passionate about helping people; whether that is managing a chronic health condition, returning to sport post injury or just to provide an ear to listen and support you through a return to activity. My key interest areas include Cancer: during and post treatment, osteoporosis, developmental and congenital disorders, child and adolescent health, and return to sport post injury. I love that I am able to help people at many different stages of life and with a wide range of health and activity levels. I always work with people to identify their health and well being goals, and then assist with achieving them, and improving their quality of life through evidence based exercise prescription.

Robb Macmillan

Exercise Physiologist

Since graduating from the University of Tasmania in 2017 with a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Professional Honours in Exercise Physiology I have been working in private practice in Hobart. My passion for Exercise Physiology comes from helping people achieve their goals and seeing them progress through all stages of their recovery.

In 2019 this passion has lead to Clare and myself starting up Hobart Exercise Physiology, to provide the best evidence based exercise for everyone needing help. I specialise in helping people going through and post cancer treatment, cardiac and pulmonary conditions, long term musculoskeletal pain and sports performance.

Since graduating I have worked with a wide variety of differing conditions and love the challenge of seeing new and different people with differing responses to exercises. I am currently working with elite level junior swimmers as well as my clinical load of all varying chronic health conditions and in my spare time I coach the North Hobart Cricket Club.

I am a firm believer that exercise is medicine and that any movement no matter how big or small is a step towards creating yourself a better quality of life for the future.

Courtney Dowling

Exercise Physiologist

I graduated from the University of Tasmania in June 2019 with a Bachelor of Exercise Science with Professional Honours in Clinical Exercise Physiology. Since graduating, I have been working in private practise in Hobart.

I am passionate about empowering clients to take control of their health through the use of evidence-based exercise prescription and education. My goal is to help others to feel and move better by improving their strength, mobility and function.

I enjoy working with clients of all ages and understand that exercise capacity and individual goals change over time. I have assisted clients to experience the benefits and improvements in many musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and metabolic health conditions through the use of exercise.

I have particular interest in assisting clients with osteoporosis, during and post cancer care, chronic musculoskeletal issues and mental health conditions. I have a passion for assisting elderly clients with mobility and maintaining optimal health with age and also enjoy pushing athletes to achieve their desired goals. I believe strongly in utilising correctly prescribed and individually tailored exercise for the management of all chronic health conditions as this enables all individuals to ensure they have the best quality of life possible.

I have a keen interest in working more with younger ages, particularly children, to assist in setting them up for the best health outcomes into adulthood. Outside of my practitioner life, I enjoy keeping active with an involvement in surf life saving as an athlete and a coach.

I aspire to be an advocate for exercise and the important role it can play in improving the health of our community.

Chris Hunt

Exercise Physiologist

I’ve recently returned to Hobart, after spending the last 6 years living on the Gold Coast. I moved up north to complete my studies in Exercise Physiology, graduating from Griffith University at the end of 2016. Prior to my move, I too completed a bachelor of exercise science at UTAS way back in 2012.

I’ve spent the last 5 years working as an Exercise Physiologist at Fighting Fit Physiotherapy, where I started as a new graduate and developed into the senior EP I am today. The clinic on the Gold Coast was primarily physio firsthand, so a lot of my experience has come from working with clients suffering from acute and subacute musculoskeletal-based injuries and conditions. However, the beauty of being an EP, you have the capability to work with so much more, and over the years I have had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of clientele. From helping some of Queensland’s best athletes wanting to maximise their performance through to young kids developing body movement awareness, and the elderly wanting to keep up their strength and maintain their independence.

My passion within the health industry began through my own personal interests in sport, having spent the majority of my adult life involved in playing and coaching soccer, and seeing the amazing benefits that being active has on one's mental and physical well-being.
Throughout my years practising, I’ve come to the realisation that the key to being able to maximise one’s physical being be it for sporting prowess, or to avoid injury and ensure longevity, is through exercise!!

My main areas of interest include athlete performance, weight management, and musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation.

Annie Mackay

Exercise Scientist & Receptionist

Having recently made the move home to Hobart with my young family, health and fitness has played a large role in my life thus far.

After completing school and beginning a career in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, I knew a higher level of health and fitness work was the path I wished to take. This led me to complete a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science and a Masters in High Performance Sport. I am also in my Fourth Year of a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology which I am hoping to complete in 2022.

My career passions are varied and include High Performance Athletic Development, Cardiovascular and Respiratory Diseases, Pre and Postnatal care as well as general population health and wellbeing.

In my spare time I love playing and watching any and every type of team sport, and you can find me out and about on a weekend trying to run the energy out of my young son or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Janelle Macmillan


After 27 years working in Hobart Pathology Administration, I have moved part time to be receptionist at Hobart Exercise Physiology.

My role at Hobart Exercise Physiology will be to assist you with anything you require and I will be one of the first friendly faces you see when you arrive.

In my spare time I enjoy the gym most mornings, walking our dog (lucky), watching my son's sport or the bombers play and reading my chosen book of the time.

I look forward to welcoming you at Hobart Exercise Physiology.
