STRONGWITHSAM

I am the director of StrongwithSam, providing services from the Below Parallel Barbell Club. My experience as a national/internationally ranked Powerlifter/strongman/gymnast/BMX racer/bodybuilder/cyclist as well as working with strength athletes across Australia have shaped my understanding of the challenged faced in elite environments and the need for tailored and individualised approach to reducing risk for injury and rehabilitation. 

 

As a Clinical exercise physiology undergraduate, working with athletes since 2015. I strive to bring together a combination of medical and exercise science skills to all coaching and athletes. I hold a special interest in stress injuries, neurological conditions, strength sports, mental disturbances in athletes (depression, ADHD, performance anxiety). 

I have been fortunate enough to be mentored by Glenn Hansen, head coach at Vector Health and performance gaining expert knowledge in exercise prescription and delivery. 

In addition, I have working experience with Sporting Wheelies and Disability association. “Delivering magic moments - those moments when people of all abilities can enjoy sporting activities with friends or stand on the Dias at the paralympics.” 

For me, supporting the management of any clients injury or illness is as important as assisting an elite athlete return to competition. That is why I take a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, collaborating with patients practitioners and coaches to develop personalised treatment and management plans, and believes thais tailored approach, together best allows a successful return to sport, exercise and work.

TESTIMONIALS

"Over approx 6months working with Ms Thomasson, I have seen remarkable improvements in my overall health, lower back strength gains - putting me roughly at the strength I had 10 years ago."

ALEX / BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION LAW / PARTNER

“I couldn’t go to the gym and the pain prevented me from squatting - I was feeling pretty frustrated. Sam was extremely helpful in assessing and working out what was going on. I was very impressed to see another person plow through a problem (online no less) and come up with a solution.”
