In January of 2016, Hassan Qureshi started offering bulk-billed exercise physiology consultations on Saturdays from Medical and Fitness Centre in Kingswood. And with that, began the journey of Holistic Exercise Physiology.
From the early days, our approach has been to help people help themselves by educating them on and facilitating behaviour change. Over the next 2.5 years, Holistic Exercise Physiology solely operated from one location, with occasional home visits and fortnightly hydrotherapy sessions at Emerton Leisure Centre. We offered exercise-based solutions to clients managing a number of chronic conditions as well as helping them lose weight. While continuing to offer fully bulk-billed consultations, we also helped Work Cover clients with their return to work plan as well as seeing clients under DVA, private health and NDIS.
In August of 2018, we decided to broaden our service offerings and locations. Over the next few Months, Holistic Exercise Physiology added several new clinic locations including Westmead Medical Centre (Westmead), Westmead Family Medical Centre (Westmead), Hillside Medical Centre (Quakers Hill), Northmead Family Medical Practice (Northmead). We started a new group program for patients with type 2 diabetes in Kingswood, launched the Holistic Blog, started doing exercise session from a number of gyms in Western Sydney.
Since the start of 2019, we have focused primarily on delivering excellent exercise physiology services while also looking to improve upon all other aspects of our business. As a result, we have helped hundreds of people improve their lives and live more.
