Achieve better health through exercise

* In the wake of the recent Coronavirus outbreak, patient and practitioner safety and support remain our highest priority. If you have been feeling unwell or have been diagnosed with Coronavirus, we would encourage you to re-book your appointment after clearance from a medical professional.

We continue to follow the advice and restrictions of the QLD Government and we strongly encourage compliance of these guidelines for all clients, staff and students.

Telehealth consultations allow you to receive the same level of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention aspects that you'd receive with face-to-face consultations over the internet in the convenience of your own home.

We've recently introduced telehealth services in the following clinics - exercise physiology, physiotherapy, speech pathology, dietetics and psychology.

If you'd like to experience telehealth for yourself, our exercise physiologists are currently on hand and appointments are available. Please call our reception team on 1800 188 295 or email us at

What we do

Our Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) Erin Barrett will find out your health goals and develop exercise programs to help you get there. Your initial health screening will assess your movement capacity and you will be given practical advice on how to maintain and improve your fitness. Individual exercise programs range from those living with chronic conditions and illnesses right up to elite athletes wanting to increase performance.

Leaders in Exercise

Unlike other exercise practitioners such as personal trainers, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is university qualified (4 years) and undertakes strict accreditation requirements. Our AEP is registered with Medicare, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, WorkCover and is recognised by most private health insurers.

How we help

Erin Barrett has a wealth of experience in helping those with chronic medical conditions and injuries and uses the latest evidence-based research to develop tailored exercise programs for her clients. She can help those with neurological, musculoskeletal, metabolic, cardiovascular or respiratory conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, lower back pain, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and many more, and can also help those in good health looking to take their fitness to the next level.

What to expect when you first visit

During your initial one hour consultation, our exercise physiologist will ask a few questions to get an idea of where you’re currently at with your health and to find out what things you like and dislike about exercise. A few body measurements may be carried out, depending on your goals, such as waist to hip ratio, weight and blood pressure to help in determining the next steps of your tailored program. From here you will be given suggestions on the types of exercises suitable, and a personalised exercise program or physical activities strategy will be developed.
