James MacFarlane



James graduated from Curtin University with a degree in Physiotherapy (Honours).

He has worked with Sorrento FC, Quinns FC, and Wolverines American Football club, where he learnt to efficiently assess sporting injuries and guide athletes towards their return to sport.

James has conducted a two-year research project on resistance training, and ensures his physiotherapy treatment and management approaches are up to date with emerging research to provide the best results for his patients.

James also works at The Motion Academy where he coaches Parkour, a form of urban gymnastics, and prioritises teaching safe and efficient movement to people of all ages.

Having experienced many injuries himself, James understands the frustration of not being able to participate in the activities that we love, and is passionate about helping people not only return to their previous levels of strength, mobility, and confidence, but surpass them!

In his spare time, James loves lifting heavy weights in the gym, freediving in the ocean, rock climbing, playing soccer, learning the guitar, and of course doing handstands, back-saults, and all things gymnastics!
