Peter Feain – Exercise Physiologist
Peter is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Exercise Scientist and Podiatrist who has recently joined the team from Sydney where he has been working in the allied health and fitness industry for over 10 years with a variety of clients from diabetics, Olympic marathon runners, those fighting cancer or battling depression, stroke victims learning to walk again and others with chronic pain.
Peter completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science at ACU in 2005, a Bachelor of Podiatry at The University of Newcastle in 2009 and a Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) from Charles Sturt University in 2014.
He has a strong passion for continued learning and staying abreast of the current research and evidence that is continually being produced in order to deliver an evidenced-based service for optimal patient outcomes.
Considerable knowledge has now been accumulated on the significance of exercise for not only maintaining health and fighting the effects of ageing but as a treatment and management strategy for many chronic conditions.
Exercise can have very powerful and positive changes to how our body and mind function. It is now known that structured, individualised exercise is an integral tool to improve functional capacity, increase strength, bone density and muscle mass, lose weight, decrease chronic pain, increase cognitive function, and decrease stress, anxiety and manage depression. It is the best way to help us not only age better but to get the most out of life at any age, whatever your goals.
Peter has a varied sporting background, playing first grade Australian Rules Football in Sydney and national-level squash before moving more recently to endurance events including Ironman triathlons and marathon running.
He is very passionate about empowering you to get the most of your life through tailored exercise interventions that suit your lifestyle and current state of health.
