Get to know your NDIS exercise physiologist, Bonnie Wang
We’ve asked another of our exercise physiologists, Bonnie Wang, a couple of questions so that you can get to know her a little better!
Why did you become an exercise physiologist?
I always had an interest in non-invasive interventions that help people to improve their health. With some guidance from my GP, she suggested that I look into an Exercise Physiology University degree where exercise is used as an intervention to prevent/manage a multitude of health conditions.
What has led to your passion for disability?
Whilst at University studying Exercise Physiology, I was fortunate enough be offered a placement in the disability field. It broadened my horizons and showed me the impact that an individualised exercise intervention could have for individuals living with disability and heightened my passion for empowering more individuals to use exercise to achieve their goals.
Do you have a memorable experience of assisting a client to achieve their goals that you’d like to share?
My memorable experiences are when clients see and feel their improvements week by week. They progress from feeling anxious and afraid to try new exercise to mastering and excelling at them!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Painting, drawing & bush walking.
What is your favourite sport or physical activity?
Bush walking & taekwondo.
In another life, if you weren’t an exercise physiologist, what do you think you’d be doing?
Phlebotomist (a medical professional responsible for collecting biological samples like blood) – just a relatively weird obsession with needles!
What is one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you? Do you have a hidden talent?
See my response to the previous question 🙂
What is your favourite movie, book and holiday?
Book: Quiet by Susan Cain
Holiday: Port Macquarie
