B.Phty (Hons) ASCA Level 1 Strength + Conditioning Coach Diploma of Dance and Related Studies
Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher
Undertaking physiotherapy study was the logical next step for Martin after working extensively with movement, movement coaching, and elite performance. This work included a career as a professional dancer, performing ballet and contemporary repertoire with the Queensland Ballet as well as with companies in Switzerland and Germany. Martin has also worked as a ballet and contemporary coach and teacher, yoga teacher and teacher trainer.
When he is not in the clinic, Martin is a casual academic working for the University of Queensland’s School of Biomedical Sciences. He brings in-depth anatomical knowledge to his work, and has a particular passion for exercise-based rehabilitation, injury prevention and performance optimisation. This work draws on a wide variety of exercise modalities from strength and conditioning training to yoga.
Martin enjoys working with a wide variety of patients to support an active and healthy lifestyle, whatever that looks like for the individual. He draws on a wide variety of personal experience-while Martin has formerly performed at an elite level and enjoys a wide range of movement modalities. Now, as a Father, his ongoing exercise more often comes from day-to-day activities; riding his bike to work, walking the dog, playing with his daughter, and from his work as a physio!
