We have some exciting things happening at Spectrum! Our gym is undergoing a total renovation, the first since it was built some 20 years ago! It’s going to look amazing, and will also be air conditioned for the first time. Over the last year we have become increasingly more specialised in the services we offer, so it felt time to make changes to ensure we are offering the most appropriate environment to meet more specialised needs. In keeping with this, we have two new Exercise Physiologists join the Spectrum family to introduce.
Let’s start with James Adkins:
James completed his Bachelor of Exercise Sport Science from the Australian Catholic University (ACU) in 2017 and has had the opportunity to work with many different sporting teams within Brisbane. Most recently, James was the head of sport science for Mitchelton Women’s Premier League, leading them to a Injury free premiership for 2 consecutive years.
James took the next step in progressing his academic career by successfully completing his Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology. During his final year of study James had exposure to an abundance of different demographics as he temporarily relocated to Mt Isa for 2 months working in the Centre for Rural and Remote Health. An experience he says made him a far better person and even better practitioner.
James understands that the road to better health isn’t linear, otherwise allied health professionals would be obsolete. Therefore he will always strive to deliver a holistic approach when assisting clients, going up and beyond to ensure they receive the best possible care at Spectrum.
Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to: Aboriginal/community health, diabetes management and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation and hydrotherapy.
In his spare time James enjoys playing any sport possible but mainly enjoys triathlons.
