Education : Bachelor Degree in Exercise and Sport Science at Victoria University

 

Self-motivated and energised Sport/Exercise Scientist focused on the enhancement of athletes performance as well as helping people who want to improve their overall health and fitness. 

 

My goal as a sport scientist is to help athletes increase their specific fitness components being agility, endurance, balance, speed, strength, and power, put in place the preventative measures to decrease the chance of injuries occurring and in the situation of an injury, provide athletes with rehabilitation programs to allow them to have the safest and most efficient method to recovery.
