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.
