Mitchell Malfliet

Director And Accredited Exercise Physiologist

Originally from Far North Queensland, Mitch is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and member of Exercise and Sports Science Australia. He graduated from James Cook University in Townsville with a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology.

Mitch has a passion for helping people with chronic conditions or injuries to improve their quality of life through exercise treatment strategies. Specialising in musculoskeletal injuries and heart health, but experienced in a diverse range of conditions, Mitch enjoys working together with his clients to achieve their goals. He finds being part of that transformation to be the most rewarding part of his role. Mitch strives to grow as a person and a practitioner, so that he can aid his clients in the best way possible.

Mitch has just moved back to Brisbane from Darwin after a 2 year stint as an Exercise Physiologist/Clinic manager, where he gained experience working with a range of clientele. This included working as an exercise consultant to a cardiac rehab program, with insurance related cases, DVA veteran one-on-one programs and the heart health program, general public word-of-mouth referrals and Chronic Disease Management plan referrals. Mitch’s clientele suffered conditions ranging from mental health and spine, knee, shoulder operations to acquired brain injuries and everything in between. Mitch developed a productive partnership with each of his clients through relaxed encouragement and a sense of humour to get the job done. He feels honoured to have had the opportunity to have a positive impact on his client’s well-being and quality of life. He is keen to extend his practice further in North Brisbane.

Services

We treat a wide variety of people with many conditions
  • “I have Parkinson’s Disease and thankfully, I have Mitch to help me to be reasonably physically independent and functioning in my day to day activities. If it wasn’t for the care and support both physically and mentally that he offers, especially in his home visits, I would not be as agile and positive in my day to day well-being.”

    Annette – North Lakes, Brisbane
  • “I went and saw Mitch after a motorcycle accident after a physiotherapist recommended him and found the treatment plan really helped me recover a lot quicker than I otherwise would have.”

    Tony – Deception Bay, Brisbane
  • “Mitch was fantastic at helping me gain more flexibility and strength in my joints after a knee surgery, very easy to talk to and the follow up care was very good.”

    Ellen – Burpengary, Brisbane
  • “I had my father in law come to stay and he wanted a second opinion on the care he was receiving back home, he booked an appointment and didn’t need to go to the doctors first – having that peace of mind that he was on the right track really helped. Thanks Mitch.”

    Hollie – Redcliffe, Brisbane
  • “I have been suffering in my back for years from labor work as a bricky, even though I am not doing that work anymore. I now have a set routine of exercises and my back is seizing up far less than it used to.” 

    John – Kallangur, Brisbane
