Amelia, who often goes by Mil, has joined our team as a Clinical Exercise Instructor. She is a fully trained APPI Matwork and Equipment Pilates Instructor, and is in her last semester of her Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology at ACU. This will make her an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), which is an allied health practitioner who has university qualifications in delivering effective exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities.
Mil began doing Pilates at 15, when she was injured as an elite athlete. Pilates helped her to regain confidence in her body and abilities, and she is passionate about helping others do the same. Her background as an elite athlete sparked her interest in exercise and she went on to complete a Bachelor of Sports and Exercise Science, train as a clinical Pilates instructor, and volunteer as a research assistant at the Baker Institute.
At the Baker Institute, Mil nurtured her passion for helping people use exercise to better manage their chronic conditions. She also hopes to one day be involved in research, to help develop lifestyle and exercise strategies for those with chronic diseases and illnesses.
