Accredited Exercise Physiologist
Riley is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist who completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science in 2019 at Latrobe University Bundoora and a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology at Charles Sturt University
Prior to graduating as an Exercise Physiologist, Riley worked for 3 years as a gym instructor and Accredited Exercise Scientist in an Exercise Physiology clinic in Ballarat while finishing up his University studies. This allowed Riley to gain valuable experience and develop a comprehensive knowledge of working with a broad range of clients and their acute and chronic conditions including musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiorespiratory and metabolic conditions.
Following graduating from his Masters degree, Riley worked part-time as an exercise physiologist in Ballarat developing comprehensive knowledge and skillsets as an Exercise Physiologist before moving to the Geelong area for full-time work.
Riley takes a holistic approach and is a strong believer that “one treatment does not match all”, and desires to get to know the person behind the condition first, going beyond their condition and their impacts as Riley believes this is the key foundation to more successful treatment outcomes. Riley believes that exercise is a powerful tool that often gets overlooked or ignored when managing acute and chronic conditions and aims to educate all his clients on how exercise can change their lives for
Riley enjoys working with all acute and chronic conditions, but has a keen interest in working with chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries and musculoskeletal injuries just to name a few.
In his spare time Riley loves to be active having played soccer and tennis all his life and when able can be found going on hikes on the weekend and running with his dog. Riley also loves to experiment in the kitchen where he cooks up a storm.
