Even after 20 years of being a physio I'm still so grateful to be in a position where I can have such a positive impact on people's health & their lives. I love working with clients & getting them back on track for a healthy & active future. I get even more of a kick out of helping my team develop so that they achieve these same great results for their clients as well.

I love our Central Performance vision of improving the health & lives of our clients & the Surry Hills community. The challenge & fulfillment of building a team that takes each client’s aspirations & goals, whether to win at the elite competitive level or just to feel great & have heaps of energy, & turn them into reality is what really gets me out of bed in the morning.

Working with my wonderful team to develop & deliver our great range of services that I know will keep people more active, healthier & having fun with their family & friends is the most inspiring part of my work. I also love seeing our athletes at the peak of their performance, especially knowing the work & training they’ve been through to get there.  I firmly believe that exercise should be fun, functional & whole-body – no more lines of boring machines & mindless workouts!

I have both undergraduate & masters degrees from Sydney University, & extensive experience in providing physio coverage for representative rugby teams in the UK.  Together with my lovely wife Jude, my weekends are usually spent having fun & playing sport with my beautiful kids Dan, Fin & Sophie. I’ve recently become addicted to Stand-up paddling & think it’s one of the best workouts around!

Head of Running Performance
Certified Middle & Long Distance Running Coach

In my time as a runner I've had my fair share of injuries. 11 stress fractures, soft tissue injuries, tendinopathies - everything! So I know the frustration that goes with being injured & not being able to do the things you love. As a result I'm very reluctant to tell my clients to simply rest & do nothing until their injury heals. I'm always looking for ways to enable them to continue doing what they love. I love working with people motivated to get back to their best, who aren't content to just sit around & wait for the injury to get better.

As clinical team leader at Central Performance I specialise in treating running injuries & deliver our running biomechanical screening program as well as our running performance program. I'm extremely passionate about running & am also in charge of the running group here at Central Performance. There is no more satisfying feeling than exceeding your own expectations & I love watching the runners I coach do just that. With correct & consistent training great things can be achieved & I'm always looking for people prepared to go out of their comfort zone to see where their body can take them.

I was first introduced to a physiotherapist at 10 years old with a hip flexor muscle injury from repetitive kicking (playing heaps of football!). I remember being completely fascinated by the profession, especially by how quickly I could get back on to the field. To this day I still have the green band he gave me for my exercises! It’s probably no major surprise that I’m now on the other side of the treatment table (for the most part), & I’m loving the opportunity my clients provide me day to day in helping them return to the things they love.

Growing up playing football at representative level allowed me to truly grasp the value of sport & exercise, which I integrate with my hands-on based approach to treatment. I believe in giving clients a thorough understanding of their condition, & also the tools to not only return to a pre-injury state but also maximise strategies for injury prevention.

I graduated from the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at Macquarie University, an advanced masters course comprising of an additional year in research. This followed a Bachelor of Health Science degree at Sydney University where I majored in Movement Sciences. I’ve also had experience in assisting numerous schools, representative clubs & NSW state football teams.

Outside of physio I’m probably playing football, watching Sydney FC or out with my mates!

B App Sc (Physio)

ASCA Level 1

Since graduating from the University of Sydney, I have specialised in treating and preventing musculoskeletal injuries (including injuries caused by overuse and acute trauma). I understand the debilitating impact that an injury can have on a person’s quality of life and career and the importance of not only relieving pain and accelerating recovery, but also of empowering my clients to develop the techniques and habits that will fortify their long-term health.

I have had extensive experience in private and public physiotherapy sectors, having worked at Prince of Wales and Young hospitals before joining Central Physio. In addition to my work at Central Physio, I have been employed as the physiotherapist for the NSW state women’s hockey team (the Arrows) for the past four years and for the Sydney University men’s hockey premier league team.

I have completed my Australian Strength and Conditioning Level 1 certificate. I was involved in establishing Central Physio’s women’s strength and conditioning program (HERO) and regularly conduct small group and private strength sessions for all skill and fitness levels.

B. Ex Physiology (UNSW)

I have always loved playing sport & exercising, as well as harbouring a deep interest in how the body works. My fascination with sport & physical performance led me to studying a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology from UNSW, which I completed in 2012. Now, as an Exercise Physiologist I love to build a relationship with my clients & assist them through the Central Performance Restore phase of their treatment. It's extremely fulfilling to watch them not only overcome their chronic injuries but also help them reach new levels of physical performance they previously thought unattainable.

To provide the best possible service to my clients I have continued to further my education by undertaking a Masters of Exercise Science (Strength & Conditioning) from Edith Cowan University. I have also competed the Australian Weightlifting Federation Level 1 coaching, Function Movement Screen Level 2 & Selective Functional Movement Assessment Level 1 qualifications. I have also developed & delivered the strength & conditioning program from the UNSW cricket club.

Personal Trainer

Since entering the Health & Fitness Industry as a Personal Trainer back in 2008 I have strived to gain as much education & experience in as many areas possible. I was also a competitive swimmer at a National level for many years & played in the state AFL league at a young age.

In 2015 I attended the internationally regarded 3-phase EXOS Performance Mentorship Program. This industry-leading course has given me the knowledge, ability & motivation to deliver the best possible training & education programs to help my clients train effectively & safely. On this program I learned specific systems for increasing physical performance through focusing on the areas of;

  • pre-habilitation & preparation of the body for training
  • efficiency & consistency of strength & conditioning methods
  • understanding & applying the best recovery/regeneration principles

I have also worked in the areas of corrective exercise prescription for both the younger & older generation as well as pre-post natal clients. In my spare time I like to workout, relax, watch movies & I love anything to do with AFL! (Originally coming from Adelaide, I was born into the sport!)

Cert IV Remedial massage

Hi, my name is John & I'm your qualified Remedial Massage therapist at Central Performance. For the last 12 years I have practiced in a variety of clinical & sporting environments. I have a background in Fitness Instruction & Personal Training, & have always been drawn to the sporting arena when it comes to soft tissue therapy. I currently work with the Greater Western Sydney Giants, & being involved with the club at it's inception is an exciting time, & something I find extremely energising. I have worked with numerous other high profile teams in the past including The Wallabies, The Kangaroos, The All Blacks, & the NSW & QLD State of Origin teams. If I had to simplify my philosophy to treating a condition as a Soft Tissue Therapist, it would come down to two main factors; tightness & weakness. To treat one without treating the other will almost always see a return of the condition. Away from Remedial Massage, my first love is strength training. I love nothing more than the catharsis & fortification of a solid gym session. I also enjoy kayak fishing, four wheel driving, bushwalking, my vegetable garden, cooking, & generally living an active life.
