We will work with you to manage pain, improve performance, prevent chronic disease, improve cancer care, and more.
Our specialised South Hobart clinic allows us to work with a wide range of health conditions and with people from a variety of backgrounds. 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.
I specialise in the management of osteoporosis, developmental and congenital disorders, child and adolescent health, mental health, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. 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.
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 coming years.

In 2019 this passion has led to Clare and myself starting up Hobart Exercise Physiology, to create an environment where we provide the best evidence based exercise for everyone needing help exercising. In 2021 we opened our South Hobart Clinic and now have our own amazing clinical gym space that is welcoming for all individuals.
I specialise in helping people going through and post cancer treatment and with individuals who suffer from an array of Musculoskeletal injuries and management of musculoskeletal pain. 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.
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.
In my spare time I enjoy playing Cricket and Golf and remaining active in the gym or out walking or running.
I am passionate about empowering clients to take control of their health using 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 enjoy working with clients and helping them 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 enjoy pushing athletes to achieve their desired performance 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 lifesaving 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.
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.
My interest in exercise physiology began due to myself wanting to find a way to better manage my own body and injuries from team sport.
I have a particular interest in NDIS support having worked with a variety of neurological conditions. I grew up with an uncle with mental and physical disabilities which showed me the importance of exercise for those with chronic health conditions. Conditions I have worked with previously include: Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's and spinal cord injuries.
I also have a keen interest in athlete development and working with those who want to achieve an athletic or sporting goal. Prior to my clinical work I was in AFL talent development in Victoria. This included strength and conditioning, running technique/capacity and athlete specific skills training. Other sports I have worked with include: netball, rugby and tennis.
I strongly believe patient education is the best motivation and assists in developing positive life long exercise habits. Work smarter not harder!
During his time at university, Keeley has worked with people with a wide range of different conditions, ranging from Chronic diseases, Bariatric and Musculoskeletal conditions.
Keeley loves meeting new people and developing exercise programs suited to their individual needs. Importantly, he wants to make sure that every session is enjoyable by keeping exercises interesting and tailored to the individual's needs.
Being an elite athlete himself, competing nationally and internationally for Hockey, Keeley has had a lot of exposure to Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists which first sparked his interest in this job. Having also worked with elite athletes as a strength and conditioning coach this has given him a new passion of helping newcomers to strength training achieve the best of their potential.
Having come from a sporty background (netball, swimming and outdoor adventuring), I've always had a keen interest in keeping active and so throughout high school it made sense to study an area that I loved, which was solidified after a sporting injury where I realised the importance of rehabilitation and preventing injury recurrence.
Throughout my time at university I learned more about the role that exercise plays in our lives and am now a strong advocate for movement and exercise throughout every stage of life - whether it be youth, pregnancy, post-injury, elderly populations, disability, or chronic health conditions. Throughout my university placements and since starting work as an Exercise Physiologist, I have developed an interest in the role that exercise plays in the prevention and management of chronic health conditions such as respiratory conditions, mental health, cardiac conditions and diabetes (with a specific interest in Type 1 Diabetes) and neurological conditions/NDIS. Each client is different from the next and so I enjoy the challenge to be creative in what I do with people and keep exercise interesting. As I've got older, I've also realised the importance of maintaining strength and functionality to be able to keep up with what life gives you, and have recognised that exercise is the key element for this.
I want to be an advocate for exercise and help people to realise that exercise doesn't have to be a chore, but rather something that they'll want to do and strive to achieve this through patient education and creative evidence based exercise prescription.
Outside of work, you can find me playing netball or enjoying time spent wandering through the wilderness!
My aim as an Exercise Physiologist is to improve people’s lives through education and helping people implement exercise into their lives in a way that is enjoyable and beneficial to each individual. I love being able to help improve peoples mobility, strength and cardiovascular fitness as a way to help manage chronic conditions and injuries.
I am qualified in reformer Pilates and have thoroughly enjoyed teaching for the past year. Other interests include going on runs with my friends, playing any kind of sport in which I currently play touch football, and going to the gym. I recently went solo travelling for four months and thoroughly enjoyed learning about different ways of living and bush walking in different countries.
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.
My role here is to greet and assist you and my fellow staff members with anything required.
Outside of work I spend time with my family and friends going on walks, adventures and making memories. I look forward to welcoming you at Hobart Exercise Physiology!
