James Adkins


Exercise Physiologist

James completed his Bachelor of Exercise Sport science from the Australian Catholic University (ACU) in 2017 and has had the opportunity to work with many different sporting teams within Brisbane. Most recently, James was the head of sport science for Mitchelton Women’s Premier League, leading them to a Injury free premiership for 2 consecutive years.

James took the next step in progressing his academic career by successfully completing his Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology. During his final year of study James had exposure to an abundance of different demographics as he temporarily relocated to Mt Isa for 2 months working in the centre for rural and remote health. An experience he says made him a far better person and even better practitioner.

James understands that the road to better health isn’t linear, otherwise allied health professionals would be obsolete. Therefore he will always strive to deliver a holistic approach when assisting clients, going up and beyond to ensure they receive the best possible care at Bayside Health Nook.

Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to: aboriginal/community health, diabetes management and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation.

In his spare time James enjoys playing any sport possible but mainly enjoys triathlons. You will frequently see him either swimming, riding or running in the bayside preparing for either his next marathon or full Ironman.
