Get to know your NDIS exercise physiologist, Hayden Ebb
We’ve asked our happy, loyal and laid-back exercise physiologist, Hayden Ebb, a couple of questions so that you can get to know him!
Why did you become an exercise physiologist?
Graduating from high school as someone who was extremely interested in sport and physical activity with no general sense of career direction, as many do, I gravitated towards exercise science. From there, I discovered the growing domain that is exercise physiology, and felt like my passion for physical activity was the perfect fit for a career in teaching others about the health benefits it possesses.
What has led to your passion for disability?
During my travels across the Northern Territory, my most fond and memorable clients were those with disabilities. Disability work can be challenging at times, but the rewarding nature of helping an individual with a disability conquer one of their goals is paramount to any other. At this point in my career, I want to prioritise working in a space that both challenges and excites me.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Anything and everything sport related!
If I’m not watching sport, you can catch me running, playing golf, snowboarding, swimming, hiking, wakeboarding or lifting weights.
What is your favourite sport or physical activity?
I couldn’t choose… I will literally play/ watch anything.
In another life, if you weren’t an EP, what do you think you’d be doing?
The only other 2 career prospects that excite me are physiotherapy or sports medicine. Either way, heavily involved in the physical/ rehabilitation industry.
What is one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you? Do you have a hidden talent?
I have a shoe obsession… I probably have 40+ pairs at the moment.
What is your favourite movie, book and holiday?
Movie: Anything Marvel or How to lose a guy in 10 days!
Book: My most recent read was ‘Still’ by Matt Nable, which I really enjoyed.
Holiday: Anywhere with snow. So far, my favourites have been Aspen, Canada & Perisher!
