My goal for StudioXphys and my life’s work is to help my clients achieve better function and be disease and pain-free to live a happier, healthier life. What sets me apart from other Exercise Physiologists is my passion for helping others, my skills for teaching functional movement, and my access and knowledge of the most successful machines available. This helps me achieve amazing results including significant pain reduction and eliminating the need for surgery.

Who Am I?

Josh Battye

I am an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Exercise Scientist registered with ESSA. I have recently finished my undergraduate and postgraduate studies here on the Gold Coast at Griffith University GC Campus. Through my years of study, I completed a diploma in Health Sciences, then moved onto a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science until finally completing my postgraduate diploma in Exercise Physiology.

Throughout my studies, I had the opportunity to do a cadetship with the AFL Gold Coast Suns for a season in their strength and development program. Additionally, I have performed work experience at the Ipswich CardioPulmonary outpatient clinic and done further work in the private sector.

My work experience is what brought me to StudioXphys where I gained further insights into human movement and state of the art equipment designed to get results and rehabilitate clients to improved health outcomes.

Hey, I’m Adina and I am an enthusiastic and passionate physiotherapist with an interest in working people who are looking to improve their performance – at any level!

I enjoy working collaboratively with people to obtain their goals, and to assist them to reach new achievements.

Since graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours), I started working in private practice in Brisbane, and at a private hospital on weekends. I was fortunate to also work with a Brisbane football club as their physiotherapist, and additionally, taught Pilates.

I look forward to assisting the Gold Coast community on their sport and health journey, wherever it may lead. Priding myself on accurate assessments, and a wide range of treatment techniques to suit all individual needs, I believe I can help to eliminate pain and enable function at all levels.
