About Us

We believe that for a person to be able to attain and maintain optimal health and wellness that 3 key health components must be targeted. These 3 components are one's physical, psychological and physiological health. Only by selectively targeting these areas can we ever hope to be functioning at our best. Unfortunately, too many health and fitness professionals only target 1 or 2 components of this critical trio and the true effect of their coaching will never allow you to reach your true potential. At Chris Dounis Exercise Physiology we believe in a holistic approach to managing your health, whether your goal is to improve your fitness, lose weight, rehabilitate or just generally feel better about yourself. 

The Chris Dounis Story

Starting in the health and fitness industry over 10 years ago after completing his Bachelor of Health and Exercise Science at UNSW he moved into community health and wellness in his job managing various Diabetes prevention programs in Western Sydney. Completing his Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology in 2012, he sought to combine his passions for health and fitness into a business that would be able to reach as many people as possible.

A member of Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), Chris is registered with Medicare and all private health funds, rebates are therefore available as are consultations through the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan.

Currently undertaking further study in nutrition, behaviour change psychology and rehabilitation, Chris understands that enacting behaviour change is a multi-layered process that is complex and requires a deep understanding of human behaviour. A tiered approach to helping you alter your behaviours is part of the coaching program that is offered.
