Welcome to Health Studio


Health Studio, Townsville's first Exercise Physiology clinic, opened its doors in 2005.  Recognising the need for quality exercise options for people with complex needs, the clinic was established by Director and Exercise Physiologist Mahn Cooke and continues to deliver exercise solutions to people who suffer from chronic injury and/or chronic disease.  The clinic also assists healthy people through personal training and strength and conditioning programs.


Health Studio's Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP's) and Sports Scientists are University qualified and trained to work with people considered to be 'High Risk', in addition to the general population and elite athletes.  We have a thorough understanding of the physiology and mechanics of the human body and are best positioned to prescribe evidence based exercise, and get results! Utilising their extensive experience in the industry, and current best practice through continued education, our AEP's will ensure you receive the safest and most effective exercise options and advice available.


If you want (or need) to get started with an exercise program but are anxious that you may be doing yourself more harm than good, we can help you reach your health and fitness goals safely and effectively.  Alternatively, if you just need good direction and supervision we can also help!


We believe that each and every person’s health needs are unique.  We will individually assess your current situation and use this information to establish a personalised plan of action, specifically designed to meet your individual needs and goals.


If you are one of the many people who don't like the intimidating and crowded atmosphere of a commercial gym, you’ll love Health Studio.  We make it our personal mission to make you feel completely comfortable in the privacy of our studio.


"Since I started at Health Studio I have found my life more enjoyable and with purpose.  The staff are friendly and educational and will do whatever is required to meet your medical requirements and conditions.  Health Studio gives me purpose and drive to leave the house and to improve my mind and body.  The anger you build up can be taken out on the apparatuses."

"I had both of my knees replaced several months ago.  I have been seing Mahn and he has helped me strengthen my legs and improved my balance.  I now have no trouble getting up and down off the floor, which is something I haven't been able to do for years.  The day to day activities that I struggled with or couldn't do, I can now do with ease.  I now get outdoors and enjoy the good things in life."

"I injured my back 10 years ago in a work related accident. Due to the core strengthening exercises I have been doing at Health Studio my back injury has stabilised and I no longer experience ongoing pain.  My pain medication has decreased and the frequency of "flare ups" has significantly decreased.  I would recommend these guys to anyone with a chronic back injury."

"I am overweight and have severe osteoarthritis in my knees. When I saw an orthopaedic surgeon, he told me I needed to have both my knees replaced, but wouldn't operate on me until I lost 20kg.  I tried to lose weight by exercising myself, but found it almost impossible to exercise due to my knee pain.  Mahn has helped me lose 15kg so far by using exercises which don't aggrivate my knees.  I only have another 5kg to go!"
