"When I started my business, I wanted to offer something different and I wanted to be different in an industry that often promotes an unrealistic image of health."
Naomi started in the industry in 2000, working as a PT for Fernwood Women’s Health Clubs, while she was completing her dual degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology and Education. After teaching for several years, she started her own business in 2011, while on maternity leave with her twins. In 2018, she completed her post-graduate studies in nutrition, through Deakin University. Currently, she is involved in the Brain Training Trial at the University of Queensland, where she is completing her PhD in Exercise Science. She is investigating the role of high intensity interval training (HIIT) and progressive strength training (PRT) for improving mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in older adults. She is also investigating additional dementia-related topics, including (i) the role of myokines/neurogenic markers in exercise-related cognitive improvements (ii) how long after an exercise intervention do cognitive benefits persist (the legacy effect) (iii) can changes and/or deficits to neuromuscular fitness predict future cognitive decline and (iv) the comparative changes of HIIT vs PRT on body composition, neuromuscular fitness and cognition in older adults with MCI.
Naomi currently offers a number of services to both the individuals and the corporate sector in addition to providing educational courses to allied health, medical and fitness professionals.
