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.

Ruben Caetano
Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor

Through my years playing sport, I have had my fair share of injuries. This is what first introduced me to physiotherapy. Since then, I have developed a passion for helping people overcome their injuries. I love helping and motivating people to move and become active in their rehabilitation. I believe exercise and physical therapy is the best way of overcoming and preventing injury and it is something that I encourage throughout any rehabilitation program.

I have had extensive experience in the private physiotherapy sector, having working in a number of private practices. I have also worked as the South Sydney Juniors physiotherapist for 2 years which gave me great on-field and off-field acute injury management skills.

I completed my Masters of Physiotherapist at Macquarie University. Following that I completed my Pilates instructor certificate level 3 and run the Pilates classes and 1-on-1 sessions. I have also completed my ASCA level 1 in strength and conditioning.

B. Ex Sc

Growing up the youngest of 7 brothers and sisters, and having a love for all things sport, the competitive streak was well and truly ingrained in me from an early age. This meant participating in every sport imaginable, including rugby league, touch football, golf, soccer, gridiron, snowboarding, and the list goes on. A love of all things sport, combined with the inevitable injuries throughout the years attracted me toward a career in the health industry.

It was when having physio treatment for an injury suffered snowboarding that I began to think that physiotherapy could be the career for me. I began studying a Bachelor of Exercise Science at the University of Wollongong, whilst working as a personal trainer and coach at a local gym. After graduating at the top of my class in my undergraduate studies, I moved on to study the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne. The combination of a B. ExSc and years of experience in the fitness industry helped to focus my interest on exercise and movement rehabilitation, and this is still a focus of mine today.

Having the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, and to enable them to continue to do what makes them happy, is the reason I am a physiotherapist. I am committed to getting you back to doing what you love to do through optimising your rehabilitation to achieve your goals.

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.

Accredited Exercise Physiologist
B. Ex Physiology (UNSW)

I have always been fascinated with the body’s movement, particularly during exercise, and coming from a family of health professionals, it was only a matter of time before I ventured into the field for myself. This led me to completing a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology from UNSW, which I completed in 2017. Some of you may recognise me from my time at Central Performance as a prac student, and I’m now proud to say I’m a full time member of this fantastic team!

As an Exercise Physiologist, I get great joy from watching my clients achieve their goals through exercise whilst building lasting relationships with them, and enjoy the challenge of providing stimulating yet effective treatment in order to do this. I love working with clients in order to get them back on track to exercising post injury, and have experience in doing this with clients from a Cardiorespiratory and Musculoskeletal background.

Outside of the clinic I’m a keen cricketer and rugby fan, and have recently taken up boxing for fitness. You’ll find me on the pitch, in the ring or on my off days at the beach mucking round in the surf. I’m looking forward to helping people achieve their goals and get strong!

I have always been fascinated with sport, exercise, and as a Canadian always appreciated the outdoors. My career path has always involved sport, recreation, and exercise by working as a lifeguard, swimming instructor, and group fitness instructor.

After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked in Occupational Rehabilitation for 3 years gaining experience with a variety of workplace injuries. I also have experience working with various elite/Olympic level athletes in sport performance and was the student therapist for the varsity field hockey team at the University of Victoria (Canada).

I’ve had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients as a physiotherapist including: corporate health, suburban rugby union teams, elite level waterpolo teams, gymnastics, and basketball. I take pride in being to utilise my physiotherapy techniques and my previous background in kinesiology to help clients back to their goals, sports, and activities.

Outside of the clinic, I enjoy spending my time swimming, rock-climbing, golfing, skiing, and exploring through Sydney by mostly hiking and eating. My most recent interests also include mixed martial arts and basketball.

I joined this great team at Central Performance in November 2016. I respect the friendly and professional service that all the team provide to our clients. I also enjoy the team spirit everyone at Central Performance has.

Working for many years in an office setting doing various rolls from IT to Payroll gives me a lot of experience. Previously, I have also been a Weight Watchers leader and a home care worker. Both these positions allowed me to show my empathetic nature.

I have many outside interests that fill my life with joy and physical activity. I am the choreographer and active member of an Award winning Barbershop Chorus of amazing women. We compete internationally and are the current Australian champions. I also sing with my husband in a rock and roll band which we have toured with an international Elvis tribute artist.
I like to walk and rock and roll dance.

I have always been a lover of playing sport as I grew up on the south coast of NSW. This convinced me to move up to Sydney and become a Personal Trainer, which I have now been doing for 4 years. I still love watching and playing sport. I’m currently training to be a professional wrestler which takes up most of my time outside of work. I also enjoy being outside training and going to the beach in my spare time. I am passionate about the health and fitness industry and I know it’s where I am meant to be.
