Melissa Tiemens, our MedX Trainer and Exercise Physiologist is originally from San Diego California, where she studied Kinesiology with an emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy at San Diego State University. After graduating she gained her Physio clinic experience as a Physio Aide for several years. In 2007 Melissa began training with MedX Medical Equipment under the supervision of Dr. Vert Mooney at Spine Zone Medical Fitness Inc. San Diego. The owners of Spine Zone are two highly renowned Orthopaedic Spine Surgeons who understood the importance of a strong core and spine and encouraged strength training before resorting to spinal surgery. Patients were primarily treated for the prevention of spinal surgery using MedX machines and Melissa had amazing results with her patients whom have dealt with chronic low back pain for years and were able to restore function, return back to gardening, golfing, and other activities of daily living with more ease and far less pain.
Melissa moved to the Gold Coast in 2010 where she began working for Pindara MedX as a MedX Specialist/Trainer. Melissa enjoys encouraging her clients to eat healthy and to incorporate a "Clean Eating" Diet lifestyle along with their MedX weekly training routine. During her spare time she enjoys exercise, yoga, beach bike rides, and cooking new gluten free recipes.
