I’ve played football since I was young, so I was always aware of the physical and even the psychological side of sport. At high school I was lucky enough to be involved with rowing, which really grew my passion for coaching and thinking about movement patterns. At uni, I got to witness first-hand the positive impact that physical activity can have on both physical and mental wellbeing, even if they’ve never exercised before. I think one of the greatest roles an Exercise Physiologist can play is to empower people to actively treatment themselves by using exercise as medicine.

When he isn’t a work, it’s hard to keep Josh away from a good restaurant, whether it’s for breakfast lunch or dinner, his passion for food always wins! Josh is involved with a variety of sports including football rowing and is a keen cyclist – but mainly for the post ride coffee & croissant!
