Native to the Sunshine Coast, Richard completed his Exercise Physiology studies in 2018 at Griffith University. He started his career on the Sunny Coast before migrating to the beautiful Burdekin region as an ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist.
Richard has a special interest in long term athlete development – overseeing developing athletes and assisting in creating a balanced approach to training, life, injury prevention, and longevity in sport. He also really enjoys his time spent treating clients with a disability, and takes this on board as a clinical area which he finds particularly rewarding.
Passionate about all things outdoors and in particular water and snow sports, Richard spent a year working in Whistler, Canada as a snowboard instructor and enjoys travelling the world and generally fitting as much surfing, freediving and snowboarding into his life as he can. Being born in South Africa, he also has a keen interest in Rugby and gets involved in local community sports like touch football and running wherever he can.
