More about Molly, our Exercise Scientist

Molly shares more about her training and experience and how she can help you at Progressive Physiotherapy Group

What does a Exercise Scientist do?

That’s a good question because not everyone has heard of an Exercise Scientist!

An Exercise Scientist is a qualified exercise professional who has completed a 3-year Bachelor degree at university. My role is to design and deliver exercise-based interventions to help improve your health, fitness, performance and overall wellbeing of general populations.

I’m trained to use exercise to prevent injury and chronic health conditions, and help you return to activities after an injury or condition. This is done in conjunction with your current Allied Health Team.

What is Molly’s experience?

I’ve been lucky enough to work around Melbourne and the surrounding areas and built a good range of skills and experience.

Here are some of the jobs I’ve undertaken:

  • Working in Melbourne CBD as part of an Allied health team, taking on a caseload with 1-1 training and small groups.
  • Numerous placements, including a 12-week internship at a Strength & Performance Gym in Mornington.
  • Various placement opportunities, which have exposed me to neurological, metabolic and cardiac conditions, and people with disabilities

I’ve also completed my Pilates mat work and reformer qualifications all ready for clinical pilates! (You can book in with Molly now!).

Not only is Molly going to cheer your day up (she’s the best!), she can also help with:

  • Custom-designing your physical activity to help achieve a fitness goal
  • Motivation and accountability to keep you on track
  • Tips and exercise to prevent a chronic disease or injury
