Having always valued health, fitness and optimising physical wellbeing, Sarah took on the challenge of studying physiotherapy – wanting to know how she could best help others to live their best quality of life. Essentially, she wanted to turn her major hobby and passion into a job!
She completed her double degree in physiotherapy and exercise and sports science at the University of Notre Dame, graduating in 2016. She also has extensive knowledge and experience in Clinical Pilates, completing an extensive instructor course in 2017.
“I love being able to use my clinical knowledge and personal exercise and injury background to be able to optimise my patients’ function and quality of life, and to achieve whatever goals they set for themselves”.
Sarah enjoys utilising a combination of Pilates, her background in exercise science and her knowledge of pathology to create personalised exercise programs for a wide range of patients – from the die hard athlete or gym goer, to someone who has never known a regular exercise regime.
Although she is highly experienced in exercise-based therapy, she still loves hands on treatment and believes it can compliment gym-based rehabilitation very well. Sarah has also completed further training courses in the areas of dry needling, low back pain, functional rehabilitation of the lower limb, and management of neck and shoulder pain.
Outside of work Sarah loves to keep fit and active, and is a self proclaimed “gym junkie” – and enjoys setting personal fitness challenges for herself and working hard to achieve them!
She’s a water baby and has a passion for any water-based activity, so in the warmer months, you’ll find her on her kayak on the ocean or river!

Cobie chose a career in physiotherapy so she could combine her twin passions of health and fitness with helping people in pain or disease. She has seen that physiotherapy is hugely beneficial for not just athletes, but also the 9-5 “desk jockeys” and in helping the elderly remain functionally independent.
Cobie graduated from Curtin University in 2008 and since then, has worked with a variety of clients including elite performance artists from Cirque Du Soleil in a Performance Medicine role, as well as on the ground level at amateur AFL and soccer teams in the local community. She has both hospital and private practice experience where she has sharpened her skills in post operative orthopaedics, rehabilitation of sporting injuries, and treatment of spinal and pelvic pain, along with helping post natal women with various women’s health issues. She has a keen clinical interest in the management and prevention of long standing running, gymnastics and sporting injuries, chronic spinal and shoulder pain, complex pain conditions and strength and conditioning.
Cobie has gone on to further her study, undertaking a Masters degree in Manipulative Therapy from Curtin University, as well as attending a multitude of courses on Clinical Pilates, dry needling, women’s health assessment and management.
“As physiotherapists, we get to spend a lot of time with our patients that other health professionals might not be able to. We often end up treating our clients’ partners, family, children and friends over the years, and you end up forming close relationships with them. We really get to understand their health issues from a whole person perspective, which puts us in a great position to help our clients achieve the best quality of life they can.”
Cobie is an exercise enthusiast, with long distance running being her sport of choice. She has completed three marathons and it is her personal goal to one day run the New York Marathon. She also loves to hike, cycle, snowboard, cook and travel to far flung places.

Sam is back in Western Australia after spending most of the past decade in Sydney, where he ran his own physiotherapy clinic at one of Australia’s largest gymnastics clubs. The lure of the Indian Ocean has brought Sam back and he is excited to have the opportunity to be part of the Life Ready family!
On top of running his clinic in Sydney, Sam worked as a physiotherapist with Randwick City Swim Club and consulted at Kensington Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic at the University of New South Wales. He also spent four years as Head Physiotherapist for the Eastern Suburbs Bulldogs in the Sydney AFL.
Sam has pursued post-graduate training in the area of sports physiotherapy and has completed the APA sport level 3 course at the Australian Institute of Sport, a graduate certificate in Sports Physiotherapy through La Trobe University and is in the final stages of completing his Masters of Sports Physiotherapy.
He has a keen interest in treating adolescent athletes, in particular gymnasts and swimmers. He also has particular interest in post-operative rehabilitation, lower limb overuse injuries (stress fractures, Achilles and patella tendon pain) and hip injuries and is highly experienced in working with patients following ACL surgery.
“I don’t think there is any other health care profession that requires a cooperative relationship between the patient and the clinician as physiotherapy. To get the best results for our clients we need to educate and teach in order for them to understand their issue and be empowered to take control of their rehabilitation. I really love it when there is that light bulb moment of understanding between my patient and myself and we know we are both on the same page. Once this happens, I know my patient will have a great outcome.”
Sam’s usual weekend involves a craft beer or two, punching out some laps in the pool, plenty of coffee, swimming at south beach or watching the Fremantle Dockers (depending on the time of year) and cooking up Sunday night feasts for his family and friends.
