WE USE THE TRAINING PRINCIPLES OF A MILLENNIA-AGED SPORT TO BUILD A FOUNDATION OF STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE.
Neuro Strength combines science, experience and vision to coach clients to optimum physical, psychological and neurologic health. We use movement to fortify the mind and body as it adapts to all changes,
underpinned by 30+ years’ experience in high level sport. Our clients seek out our interventions for greater independence and quality of life along all metrics. A diagnosis of a neuro-degenerative disease
can destabilise a person. Here most healthcare practitioners sombrely emphasise maintenance of existing function; Neuro Strength knows this is your most important growth period.
This collaborative journey can be joyful and uplifting; the signature of a Neuro Strength coach is their welcoming smile. Nature shows us nothing stays the same; the best is yet to come, and we are privileged
to coach you to realise this.
OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR STRENGTH
DIRECTOR AND HEAD COACH
As a health science professional dedicated to treating movement disorders (emphasis on Parkinson’s Disease) Kate uses novel approaches to raise community awareness on dysfunctions of the central nervous system. Her research, education and international speaking engagements have improved the lives of people living with neurodegenerative disease both in Australia and overseas. Kate is daily proving that building relative strength and muscle mass through dynamic progressive resistance training delivers greater vitality, quality of life, autonomy and FUN to our clients daily lives.
As a neuroscience devotee committed to synaptic neurogenesis, each day she’s either surfing, training in Olympic Weightlifting, skateboarding on the beach, juggling or practicing a new motor skill to optimise brain health. Kate is otherwise known as the friendly, smiling, neighborhood extremist.
“I have represented Australia in Weightlifting and have also Coached at National level in the sport since 1976, during which time I have achieved success at the highest International levels.
I won gold at the 2008 Australasian Masters as well as being invited in the same year to work with SAS personnel at Campbell Barracks, helping develop innovative lifting and strength building exercises.
In 1998 I coached the Tongan National Weightlifting Team (at the invitation of the International Olympic Committee) and in addition to my other successes I won the Australian Games Gold and Afroasian Games gold in 1994.
I am also a Level 2 Accredited Weightlifting Coach. After a successful career in competitive weightlifting I recently joined Neuro Strength Australia as a platform for delivering treatment programs for those
suffering from neurological and movement disorders. Treatment is centred on a range of weight lifting therapies, all of which are aligned to evidence based medicine. I am proud to have successfully
helped so many people suffering from debilitating diseases. I am also involved with Olympilift which I founded in 1995 and where I have been Head Coach ever since. I work well with teams of people of
varying sizes and enjoy the process of team working very much, getting people to work as effectively as possible towards the desired business objective is especially satisfactory; and I like motivating
and encouraging people too. It gives me great satisfaction to see everything come together”
