Hi, I’m Tarin Cowley and I am an exercise physiologist!

I’ve been working for Active Ability since 2016. I moved up to the Sunshine Coast in January of 2019 and have quickly fallen into the “Sunny Coast lifestyle”.

I like to get out and about in the local area with my two Ridgeback dogs, whether that be hiking or running along the many gorgeous beaches I’m lucky to live by. I’ve always led an active life, playing most sports during school and I am currently keeping fit by cross training between walking, hiking, biking, swimming and going to the gym each week. The more variety, the better for me! Basically, if I’m moving, I’m happy!

I enjoy providing people with disabilities the education and knowledge that they are looking for regarding exercise, so that they can incorporate it into their lifestyle to achieve their personal and NDIS goals. I have experience working with a variety of clients of various ages and medical conditions such as cerebellar ataxia, mitochondrial disease, intellectual disability and spinal cord injury. I believe that ensuring client enjoyment throughout their session is an important part of the success that I see with my clients. I am able to do this through getting to know each of their interests and individualising my approach to their exercise programs.

I provide Active Ability’s mobile Exercise Physiology services to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland area. I travel from as far south as Caloundra, to as far north as Coolum, including the Kawana, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore & Mudjimba suburbs.

Through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, exercise physiology is a Capacity Building Support that can be funded through either ‘Improved Health and Wellbeing’ or ‘Improved Daily Living Skills’. Active Ability don’t charge for travel, don’t have a waiting list and are not charging the 10% Covid-19 loading.


Do you have funding through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

Could you do with some support from an exercise physiologist to achieve your goals?
