Martin Cordwell

My name is Martin Cordwell and I am a 23 year old Clinical Exercise Physiologist student currently in my 4th year of study at QUT University. Fitnance is my first prac placement in which I need to complete 100 hours of healthy population screening and exercise prescription. Fitnance is an amazing place and gym. Not only does this gym get people fit, healthy and provide guidance to achieve any level of goal, it prides itself on getting the best out of everyone who comes through their doors. The staff members really do care about their clients, and it is a credit to their hard work.
My sport is Rugby League in which I have been playing for 17 years. I currently play for the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles in the QLD Cup. I have a passion for any sport, and respect anyone who gives their all to what they love to do. I want to see people get results and this is my motivation; whether it is making it as a professional athlete, decreasing their marathon time by 10 minutes, or even just fitting into that dream dress, I am committed to making a difference.
Come into Fitnance and make your dreams come true. I couldn’t recommend a better place!

Till I see you in here, have a good one!

Kristian Wanka

Hey everyone!
I am a 4th year student at QUT studying Clinical Exercise Physiology. I have been completing my Practicum at Fitnance for a few weeks now and have enjoyed every minute! My sporting background is mainly in Rugby League but I also enjoy playing Golf when I get a chance. I feel very fortunate for the opportunity to work with such professional staff and have gained so much knowledge in a short time. So pop into the gym and say G'day!

Drew Bettison

I am finishing my 3rd year QUT student, studying Clinical Exercise Physiology. I'm very interested in physical rehabilitation, strength and endurance training. My primary sporting interest is boxing, which I am allowed to undertake during my first prac experience here at Fitnance. I heard excellent things about Fitnance gym, that it has expert staff, quality equipment, and impressive exercise programs. I undertook my prac at Fitnance in hoping to furthur my skills in strength training, cardio, flexibility, sport, and rehabilitation as I am hoping to become an accredited Exercise Physiologist or Physiotherapist. I am learning many new things at Fitnance and thoroughly enjoying my time here.

Martina Smidt

I'm currently a 4th year student at QUT studying Clinical Exercise Physiology. This is my first prac experience and I'm thrilled to be undertaking it at Fitnance. My background is predominetely of still water rowing, however have have had plenty exposure to multiple endurance type events/ training such as cycling, running etc. I hope to fine tune my strength and resistance training abilities and learn as much as possible while at Fitnance.

Ben Singh

I am a 4th year Practicum student from QUT studying Clinical Exercise Physiology. I chose to complete my Practicum at Fitnance because many students I have spoken who completed their Pracs here speak highly of the site and really enjoyed their time here and were provided with an opportunity to work with a range of different clients. My background is predominantly resistance training based because this is the type of training I most enjoy learning about and participating in. After graduating from this degree I hope to follow a career in strength and conditioning or as an exercise physiology. I look forward to my time at Fitnance and I hope to learn a lot from the team here as well and contributing as much as I can.
