BExSS(CEP), Accredited Exercise Physiologist (ESSAM), AEP Manager

I became an Exercise Physiologist not just because of my love of sport, but because I genuinely believe that exercise is medicine and I want to help every individual benefit regardless of their age, gender or condition. I really enjoy getting to know and address all elements of health, so my exercise programs take into account social, physical and behavioural factors. For me it’s not only about the right exercise prescription, but about the support and understanding I can offer that will help people achieve their health or fitness goals. I also really enjoy the techonology and innovation side of exercise, so I’m always looking for new equipment or tech to optimse what we do at Bodytrack.  

Dan graduated from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science majoring in Clinical Exercise Physiology in 2012.  As well as praciticing as an Exercise Physiologist, he has been involved teaching up and coming EPs and Exercise Scientists at the University of Queensland. This included sharing his knowledge, experience, skills and techniques to students, ensuring they understand the importance of exercise and the positive effects it can have on people’s lives. Dan continues to share his talent educating the next generation in his role as Practicum Supervisor and in 2016 Dan took on the position of AEP Manager at Bodytrack. This role involves leading the team in education, innovation, talent identification and team optimisation. When Dan isn’t watching NBA, you can find him playing cricket or running with his partner Gabby and their two huskies.
