Melita Thompson-Kambas

As an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, I am passionate about promoting safe exercise recommendations to a diverse range of clientele. I prescribe tailored exercise programs to suit each individuals’ abilities, goals, interests and lifestyle.

Being physically active and living a healthy lifestyle has always been an interest of mine, therefore I completed a Bachelor of Human Movement followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Exercise Science at UniSA.

I enjoy watching and participating in a wide range of sports, cooking/baking, adventuring outdoors and travelling. I also enjoy helping people achieve their health related goals and take great pleasure knowing that I am able to be part of that journey towards positive change.”
