WHAT OUR CLIENTS
POINT OF DIFFERENCE
Welcome to Fitness Fx Pty Ltd. If you are reading this page you have more than likely been referred to me by your specialist, your G.P. or a friend/family member who has experienced their own personal success as a patient here. You can read about others success under the case studies headings. Fitness Fx began in 1997 while I was completing my Masters Degree in a small studio in Clayfield and grew to five studios with 17 staff!
Many years ago I worked with professional athletes at the Queensland Academy of Sport and during my Masters studies I focused on special populations which required a high degree of understanding of the disease processes which can afflict people throughout their lives. I studied cardiac rehabilitation and worked closely with morbidly obese patients undergoing lap banding operations at the Wesley Hospital in Brisbane. I decided to focus my career on “normal people” who wanted to improve themselves and prevent disease. I took the scientific and detailed training regimes for athletes and applied them to the everyday person to help them achieve their own optimal performance at the level that they wished to achieve. I included in these programs the preventative measures needed to provide my client with the best health insurance against disease and slowed their individual aging process through the methods I used.
I continued my studies in manual therapy, as it became very apparent to me that some people were unable to perform parts of my programs due to injuries which had not been adequately rehabilitated by others. I became very passionate with my holistic approach to healthcare and researched, completed further studies and attended many conferences and workshops on musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Many years ago, I was involved in a motor vehicle accident which left me with one prolapsed disc and another herniated disc in the cervical spine. The prolapsed disc was protruded so far that the neurosurgeon said it was placing pressure on my spinal cord and causing it to swell. Surgery was certainly recommended however I did not choose to go down this path. I have experienced the pain this injury causes and understand personally how chronic pain affects your whole life. Through this experience,
I was able to design a unique way of releasing the body which permanently releases pain and dysfunction. I have replicated this success with thousands of patients over the last 18 years of clinical practice. Please visit the case studies

I am often asked, “How are you different from all these other health professionals who are saying the same thing?”
My best answer for this is: “I solve my patient’s problems when many before me have failed! I have been referred complex patient conditions, which have left other professionals scratching their head, and have found the root cause to then finally solving the individual’s problem. I do this on a weekly basis and have done thousands of times over the last 18 years.
I often see people who have already tried numerous professionals who have either wasted their time and money or have made the patient’s problem even worse. One of the key factors I have found is these particular professionals have lacked the knowledge, comprehension of the current research and analytical ability to draw out the required information needed for an accurate diagnosis.
I listen to you, I hear your individual story in full so that I have all the information available. I then analyse this and ask you further questions and together in detail we nut out why you have landed in this current state and why your body is not making a full and complete recovery. I can explain to you how it has happened, why it has happened and what is required to fix it in a way in which you can fully understand. Time spent tracking down precisely what has happened can prevent recurrences and save hours of frustrating treatment time and treatment failure.
Patients often say, “no one has ever taken this time to collect all the information needed and put all the pieces together for me, it all makes complete sense now”!
I am happy to teach you as much about your body as I can so that you then have the power to avoid future problems, to accelerate your recovery from your current problem and to be able to live the life you want to live!
