Martine has over 20 years of experience in sports coaching, exercise science and clinical pilates. She is well-known in Melbourne for her multi-disciplinary studio, Unified Fitness, located in McKinnon.
As an accomplished tri-athlete herself, Martine is highly knowledgeable and practical in her approach with clients. She is commonly described by clients and peers as an educator who goes ‘above and beyond’ to support client goals.
Martine is a qualified Exercise Physiologist, Level 4 Pilates Instructor, Level 2 Swim Coach and Remedial Massage Therapist who has studied a Master’s of Exercise Physiology, Bachelor of Applied Science (Sports Coaching), Bachelor of Emergency Medicine (Paramedics) and Certificate IV Remedial Massage.
After seeing a number of referred clients with preventable injuries (from high profile sporting clubs in Australia) – Martine identified the need to focus on ‘prehab’ exercise, as opposed to ‘rehab’ alone.
In 2014, she devised the Springys system, an evolution of the Pilates spring wall, capable of providing paralleled repertoire to that of the Pilates reformer. The Springys system is space saving and versatile, enabling Springys exercise outcomes to extend well beyond Pilates. The Springys system provides further scope for professionals who work with clients or patients to develop functional wellbeing or improved movement efficiency for sport.
