Rob is originally from Canberra and initially trained as a primary school teacher. After a period spent teaching overseas in Thailand and the UK, Rob returned to Australia where he decided on a career change. Inspired by the local Osteopathy clinic and the practitioners he met there, Rob relocated to Melbourne to train to become an Osteopath at RMIT in 2020. His main academic interests lie in Paediatric, Sports and Rehabilitation Osteopathy.
Rob has completed a Cert IV in Mat and Reformer Pilates from Breathe Education in 2019. The course covered Contrology 2.0 which is the modern era teaching, scientific and biomechanic principles of the original Contrology taught by Joseph Pilates. He utilises mat, reformer and a variety of other ‘toys’ to get the best benefits for his clients. Furthermore, Rob has journeyed through Pilates as a student. He has found his own personal benefits from regular Pilates practice to overcome general stiffness as well as an excellent way to build strength, mobility and control breathing patterns. There’s no better way to spend a spare five minutes than with ‘legs in straps’!
Rob is a general sports enthusiast. His passions lie in cricket, rugby union, squash and skiing. He referees rugby union with the VRRA as a way to enjoy the sport without the risks of being tackled! In his spare time from Uni and his part-time jobs, you’ll find Rob adventuring around parks, beaches and trails with his border collie pup, Lolly.
