Dr Bonnie Furzer (PhD)

AES - AEP 

Thriving would not be possible without the amazing team of administration, support and program delivery staff and students. The expertise and enthusiasm of our exceptional team is what allows us to continually offer a wide variety of programs and exercise experiences to kids and teens.

 

Individual coaches within Thriving are predominantly accredited Exercise Scientists (AES) or Exercise Physiologists (AEP), and other allied health graduates. The diversity in teachers allows the tailoring of the programs and the matching of participants with suitable instructors.

All instructors undergo extensive training and are supervised by highly experienced paediatric exercise professionals and the Thriving advisory committee.
