A Bit About Sam

Sam grew up in Newcastle and loves spending her time either studying for Uni, at the gym, with her friends, and when she can, she loves to travel the world.

 

Sport and Hobbies

Growing up, Sam hated sport and did everything she could to get out of PE class. However, she’s always loved to dance and has probably done every dance genre there is growing up. From Physical Culture or ‘Physie’ as most people know it, to Jazz, Hip Hop, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, Aerobics, Pole Dancing, Aerials, Tap dancing, and Ballet. Now, she mainly just shows off her moves on the odd occasion on the dance floor.

However, Sam has now done a complete 180’. She loves sport and keeping physically active wherever she can. She loves the gym and weightlifting, and if she’s not at Next Gen Physio greeting you with a smile, you can probably find her at the gym. Along with her love for the gym, she is also addicted to buying new active wear, in order to help fuel her workouts.

Sam’s travel bucket list is very long and never ending. She would love to have a European summer one day, absorbing the sun and eating her way through each country.

 

Career

After working in the Fashion industry for many years, Sam had a change of career path and is currently studying a Bachelor of Exercise Sports Science / Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology at the University of New South Wales.

She is very passionate about all thing’s health and fitness, and helping people through exercise. This has led her to studying her degree and working here with the team at Next Gen Physio as a Receptionist. She hopes to one day be an accredited Exercise Physiologist, Sports Scientist and work in a clinical setting, possibly even at Next Gen one day!

Absolutely incredible physio. The whole team are super friendly and highly experienced. My first appointment was with Michael who greeted me with a warm welcome and was incredibly helpful. Can’t recommend this physio enough to anyone looking for an appointment.

Tom Russell has been a go to physio both personally and for our patients for a decade. We love his open and honest advice and his expertise in managing injuries and recovery. The whole team is so friendly and our patients always have great feedback after visiting them. Tom and his practice manager, Gabby visited us in our clinic today to help our team better understand the services he is providing to our patients and what really works to get them feeling great as quickly as possible after surgery. Much appreciated!

I met Tom and Gabby during my first appointment here, both were fantastic! Tom has a great manner and had no trouble getting to the bottom of my injury. I'm a big fan of the app they use because it overcomes the problem of forgetting exercises or how to do them properly

I’ve been visiting Next-Gen Physio for a few years now. I’ve always found the team to be knowledgeable and genuinely caring no matter which physiotherapist or therapist you visit.

After suffering from back pain and muscle stiffness for a while due to a work related injury. I went in to see the guys at Next Gen and was referred to Adam for a remedial massage. After my first massage I immediately rebooked with him again, his knowledge about particular muscles and post massage exercises is great, and also how in-depth he goes with his massage definitely made me want to return again. I can’t recommend Next Gen Physio enough. Thanks guys!
