I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to regain their balance and mobility. I have a lot more confidence in myself now after working with Adam for over the last 7 months. His periodic evaluations are very helpful in seeing the progress I’ve made. Dee Ware

My Mum of 94 years, has been doing exercises in her home with Adam. She was very weak and loosing muscle mass, especially after loosing my Dad in April. Adam gradually encouraged her to start gently and improve weekly doing her exercises. Even at 94, she is now regaining her strength and it looks like we wont be needing to use the wheel chair that was recently purchased. It's amazing what an half hour, twice a week, can achieve. Thankyou Adam for your knowledge and expertise in helping my Mum walk much more freely.

I worked with Adam whilst working as a Case Manager for an Aged Care Provider. Adam was a delight to work with. He was prompt, efficient and communicated extensively. His reports are detailed and I received regular updates. Clients have reached their personal goals and were thrilled with the way Adam approaches their sessions.

Adam is a diligent and gentle exercise physiologist who will listen to your needs and work with any health constraints you may have. I particularly appreciated how he liaised with my cardiologist to help me figure out what I could and couldn’t do.

Adam’s exercises before a major illness contributed to saving my life. He is now able to help me with my rehabilitation and his willingness to conduct home visits is an extra bonus to us. We have nothing but praise for Adam. Thank you for your care Adam, John & Ann Crosby.

I cannot speak highly enough of Adam Rimland and his work as an exercise physiologist working across all ages and all medical conditions. My husband Brian suffered from Parkinsons disease which eventually affected his mobility – in 2019/20 we had Adam visiting our house twice a week where he focused on firstly analysing Brian‘s needs in developing an ever-changing program that challenged Brian but enabled him to keep Mobile. This was a godsend and so successful -he was 80 years old. We continued this when Brian was admitted to a nursing home . In recent times I engaged Adam to help me with a severe knee problem I have endured for 10 years. In that time three orthopaedic specialists have confirmed severe osteoarthritis with bone on bone and booked me in for surgery for a knee replacement all of which I cancelled. After working with Adam for six months and doing very specifically designed exercises I am now walking on the sand for 5 days a week for 6K with virtually no pain . On my recent visit to the orthopaedic specialist last week he confirmed that he does not want to do the knee replacement if I can walk that distance pain-free. This is a miracle for me resulting from Adam’s attention to detail and his depth of knowledge and experience in Exercise Physiology tailored to the individuals need. I am 79 years old .

It is with much pleasure that I wholeheartedly recommend Adam. A severe water skiing accident 50 yrs. ago left me with multiple spinal, muscular & balance issues which have worsened with age. Adam has slowly built up an exercise program which for the 1st. time, I have not only been able to follow & cope with, but which is actually improving my mobility & range of movement. I love the way he notices every aspect of my technique & offers advise for subtle changes that make all the difference. He is wonderful at explaining how & why these are helping me, & he is extending the program at a speed that is not overwhelming, but enough for me to feel continued positive changes in my body. Thank you Adam.

Adam has been working with me for 12 months both at home and in the gym after I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.After much patience and effort Adam has improved both my balance and body strength to a level that not only impressed me and my family but also my neurologist.I have no hesitation in recommending Adam to anyone .

Adam's positive attitude and enthusiasm towards developing a bi-weekly gym routine makes going to the gym enjoyable and rewarding.

Do You Have NDIS Funding For Exercise Physiology?

NDIS Participants can choose which providers they wish to work with, and their NDIS plan identifies what outcomes they wish to achieve, and the supports they will use.

Allied health providers such as exercise physiologists play an important role within the NDIS by providing quality services and support to participants.

Age Well For Life EP can be arranged through two NDIS Capacity Building funding categories. 

  • Improved Health and Well-being (12_027_0126_3_3)
  • Improved daily living (15_200_0126_1_3)

Depending on the structure of your package you may also have the potential to consult with an exercise physiologist via other avenues such as core funding.

Cindy had a delayed subarachnoid hemorrhage, left inter-cerebral haematoma and aneurysm Sept, 2016 with significant loss of left hemisphere tissue in her brain. She needed to get movement back, if possible, as a priority. Adam's exercise physiology services have been extremely helpful as Cindy's first movements came from his treatments. Her arm movements & balance have improved significantly. I can't thank Adam enough for what he is doing with Cindy.
