Hi, I’m Liz and I am one of the Accredited Exercise Physiologists at Holistic Strength, managing the northern suburbs.
Prior to my studies, I was a competitive acrobatic gymnast, gymnastics coach and judge. I began working as a volunteer coach in the UK 2009 before I moved to Perth in 2014, where I went on to complete further qualification in both coaching and judging across multiple gymnastics disciplines across the lifespan, including disability gymnastics. I retired from the sport after diagnosis of a chronic genetic hip condition in 2018 and coached until the end of 2021. My earlier experiences and exposure to injury during my gymnast and coaching years lead me to towards Exercise physiology, in particularly, injury prevention and management.
Following my graduation from ECU in 2021, I immediately went on to complete a Diploma in Remedial Massage Therapy, alongside other massage therapy modalities to compliment my current career. I have since worked within various clinics and within the mining industry in both professions before deciding to remain in Perth.
I have always enjoyed working with people in a variety of clinical exercise and sport settings, and am extremely passionate about educating people on the importance of exercise and providing creativity within exercise programs to engage participants and fulfil their goals. I believe in having fun whilst doing exercise is key to achieving long term health outcomes, in addition to maintaining and improving independence.
My main areas of interest include neurological/neuromuscular, men’s and women’s health, oncology, and musculoskeletal conditions.
In my free time, I enjoy being active, reading, completing craft projects and spending time with my 6-year-old dwarf rabbit, Neo.
