Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiologists specialise in clinical exercise interventions for people with a broad range of health issues. Those people may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries. The aims of exercise physiology interventions are to prevent or manage acute, sub- acute or chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health or wellness. These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.


There are a wide range of reasons why a person may benefit from consulting an accredited exercise physiologist. These include chronic disease management referrals after diagnosis of a range of conditions including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Metabolic disease
  • Neurological disease
  • Musculoskeletal disease (including arthritis, osteoporosis/osteopenia, acute and/or chronic musculoskeletal issues)
  • Depression and other mental health conditions
  • Cancer

Brenda: Exercise Physiologist

I have a great passion for promoting movement to improve both your physical and mental health. My philosophy is that there is no “right way” to exercise and the best form of exercise for you,  is one that you will enjoy and will continue to do; whether it be weight lifting, yoga, circuit training or going for a run.

I have experience in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, chronic pain management, chronic disease management and neurological disease management. I also have a keen interest in women’s  health and I am committed to promoting exercise for women of any stage and of all ages!

I love learning how each individual person’s story shapes who they are today, and I always tailor my treatment to best suit the individual, not only for their condition, but for their interests and experiences.

In my own time I love weight lifting, boxing and going for long walks with my dogs!

Jessica’s passion for Chiropractic commenced at an early age after experiencing a knee injury from playing netball. Jessica began regular treatment and rehabilitation with a Chiropractor for her injury and experienced the benefits firsthand.


Jessica is skilled in pregnancy and pediatric care (kids care); she enjoys helping her clients through all stages of their life. She assists mums-to-be through their pregnancy helping to reduce pain, improve bubs’ positioning and encouraging a quick post-natal recovery. Jessica also specialises in headaches, neck pain and jaw pain, completing further studies in understanding the effects of stress on the body as well as its influence on headache sufferers.


Jessica believes that health is more than just the physical condition and understands that outward manifestations of health are also influenced by emotional and chemical (nutrition, medication, supplements) factors.


Jessica enjoys travelling and keeps active by playing netball and she also enjoys skiing. Jessica can often be found at Crunch Female Fitness training with weights and running. She has a great appreciation for balance, strength and core stability.  Jessica is looking forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your health goals and getting back to what you love doing.

My approach is very holistic – to achieve the most out of your life you need to have a healthy and relaxed mind in order to maintain a fit and healthy body. And this includes having a good laugh along the way! As a more mature trainer I bring many life skills to my training sessions.

With me I can help you:

  • Train smarter without killing yourself or wasting time
  • Rebuild an injured body with specialised exercises
  • Lose weight by developing a lifestyle eating plan to complement your training
  • Take the stress out of your day to day

Shelley is a certified functional medicine health coach who is passionate about empowering women to more gracefully surf the waves of menopause. To see us all, happy and healthy in bodies we love, rather than rolled by the rough seas of hot flushes, brain fog, body changes and more.


Now proudly in menopause herself, Shelley knows how the uncharted perimenopausal flow can be destabilising, to say the least. Hormonal peaks and troughs can make our body feel like a stranger. Old strategies to get back on track no longer work as they did before. All this only adding to our stress levels, fragile emotions and fractured sleep.


That is why, having been where you are, Shelley seeks to shine a light forward. To help move you through this most natural, if a little tricky, stage of living. All with less stress and more joy.


By blending a positive psychology approach with the science of functional medicine and her own real-life tools, Shelley leads you to harness your strengths and find your best next steps.


Imagine it a little like this  


Starting with what is most important to you, your goals, your dreams. 

A vision, a plan, a supported way forward begins. 

Starting so small stress naturally reduces and capacity opens. 

Space to take baby steps forwards. Momentum gathers. 

Building on what works well, what comes most easily. 

You nibble away at progress, at change. 

Under unswerving positive regard, accountability is created.

Results are achieved, goals kicked.

Yes! It is possible!


If you are ready to find out more, please email Shelley to arrange a free discovery session soonest.


Biography in a nutshell

As a nomadic Australian, Shelley has lived in Aus just one third of her adult life. More than a decade exploring the world as an expat based in dusty Saudi Arabia, and the decade before that in the West Country of England as a Fly Navy wife. Now in Australia, she is settled firmly by the white sand beaches of Jervis Bay, South Coast, New South Wales.


Looking back, Shelley honestly reflects that most of her life highs also arrived with a hefty side serving of stress. Whether ultra-marathon acute, or military wife chronic, stress has been ever present.


Back in 2016, as the unpredictable wave of perimenopause arrived, Shelley joyfully certified as a functional medicine health coach. A timely addition of hormonal insight to pop in her eclectic support toolkit of positive, energetic, and simply sensible stuff.


Inspired to share this wellspring of life experience and learned science is where Shelley sits now – passionate to empower women like her to more gracefully surf the waves of menopause. To walk by your side and onto your own upward spiral of goodness. Yes!


All sessions with Shelley are virtual so you can connect from the comfort and support of your own personal space.
