Katherine qualified as a physiotherapist in London and then moved back to Sydney. Whilst working in nursing homes, establishing a private practice and running both land and water exercise classes, her passion for working with our older population developed.
“From my experience most of us continue to ‘feel’ young. Then one day you realise that your body is now struggling to achieve everything that you would like it to. At this point it becomes important to focus on our physical capability and establish a plan that enables us to continue doing what makes us happy. This is the reason I love running classes which are fun, sociable and physically rewarding.”
Doris graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science and after developing a keen interest in rehabilitation continued her studies to complete a Masters, specialising in Exercise Rehabilitation. Since then Doris has worked with chronic disease management especially in our older population so has been a wonderful addition to 50+ Fitness Therapy. Her plans include adding some new classes to our schedule as well as providing an in-home exercise service.
