Sports medicine, Exercise Physiology
Graduating with a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Hons.) from QUT in early 2014, Sami has combined her coaching experience and formal education and developed a unique skill set and an expertise in the area of aesthetic sports. Sami has 11 years experience coaching competitive gymnastics in Australia, USA and the UK. Intent on helping to create change within the sport and stay involved in gymnastics, Sami still works as a senior coach within the high level "Talent Opportunity Program" at the 2nd ranked club in QLD, Splitz Gym. During her time as a coach, Sami has produced many State Champions , State medallists, Qld Representatives and National Club Championship medalists.
Working as a gymnastics coach since her transition out of the sport at age 16, she observed a trend of preventable injuries in adolescent athletes which compelled her to pursue Exercise Physiology as a career and has fed her special interest in athletic development and injury prevention for adolescent and mature athletes across all sports.
In addition to her work with athletes, she has experience working with a broad array of clientele and thoroughly enjoys helping anyone achieve their goals whether they be to gain their best level of function, improve their health and/or manage chronic conditions, optimise their body composition or excel on the sporting field. Sami also specialises in musculoskeletal programming including; end stage injury rehabilitation, movement assessment screening, advanced periodised programming, injury prevention and/or chronic injury management programs as well as exercise programming for postural correction.
