Alex has been working as an exercise physiologist at our Asquith clinic since it opened in 2016.
He grew up in the Hornsby area and took an interest in sports, including tennis, mountain biking, and soccer. He was honored to represent Asquith Boys High School on their first international soccer tour, and has had the chance to ride the trails of Whistler’s famous mountain bike park. After leaving school, he took up gym as a hobby, and started training for powerlifting, finally participating in his first amateur competition in 2018.
Alex started down his professional path by first completing certificates in fitness through Tafe. He then moved on to a Bachelor’s in Sport and Exercise Science at University of Newcastle, following it up with a Diploma of Exercise Physiology from Charles Sturt University. His first job in the industry was working at a gym providing rehab treatment for Veteran’s Affairs clients.
After moving to Dynamic Motion, Alex spent time developing our exercise physiology services and building our seniors exercise class program. He is experienced in improving the health of older people with musculoskeletal issues and chronic illnesses, exercise for younger populations with autism, and strength training for athletic performance. Alex has vast experience treating war veterans and providing safe and effective exercise to people with a wide range of needs and physical abilities. He has a particular interest in core training for strength and low-back health, as well as general strength and conditioning.
He is currently also enrolled at University of Sydney as a part-time masters student, where he is part of a research team that focuses on exercise in older populations. Currently he is running a research trial looking at resistance training as a treatment for depression and metabolic syndrome, for which he is looking for interested participants in the greater western Sydney area.
