Staff profile – Max Shearwood

Max Shearwood joined the Physio Plus family as a patient centered Exercise Physiologist with a strong passion for strength and conditioning and chronic disease management.

Born and bred on the Central Coast, NSW, Max moved to Townsville in 2014 to complete his bachelors degree. Max has worked closely with the North Queensland referees strength and conditioning unit and is a facilitator for lifestyle programs such as My Health for Life and exercise classes for people living with Diabetes (Beat It).

In 2020, Max has been implementing both of these government funded programs and welcomes anyone to visit him to check their eligibility and get their healthy lifestyle changes up and running. Currently, Max is part of the medical team looking after the Magpie Crusaders soccer team in the MPL alongside physiotherapists Jade and Denis. Fingers crossed the season can get underway some time soon!

Max loves rugby league and is always happy to boost your confidence and talk about how your team beat his beloved Newcastle Knights on the weekend. If you are looking for health and lifestyle changes, come in to Physio Plus Mackay to have a chat to Max about settings goals and formulating programs to suit your health needs.
