Josh first graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2011 with his Bachelor of Physiotherapy. It was at this point that he first commenced working for Victoria's largest public healthcare network, Monash Health doing rehabilitation for a different range of clients ranging from stroke, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory to the older population. Concurrently Josh also had a strong interest in strength training, in particular powerlifting and bodybuilding.
Josh competed in two state competitions in the sport of bodybuilding, placing second in 2014 and more recently represented Australia in the 2016 Asia & Oceania Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand.
It was in the same year, Josh realized the need for specialized input in the these sports with the growing number of injuries and he strived towards a vision of owning his own practice by working as part of the Back In Motion Health Group, Rowville to develop his private skills.
Finishing up at Rowville in December 2016, Josh decided to start his own physiotherapy practice and called it PowerBuild Physiotherapy after his passion for bodybuilding and powerlifting. However, having experience in all different injuries and conditions, his skills are not only limited to these sports.
Today he can be found in his consulting rooms within the Next Level Fitness Gym, Noble Park. His philosophy revolves around empowering clients to understand and take charge of their injuries. He is also a big fan of using functional exercises to rehabilitate the everyday population and show them how much more they can do and achieve by being stronger.
In his spare time, Josh still trains in the sport of powerlifting, enjoys riding his motorbike, spending time with his family and enjoys a sneaky pizza from his local pizza joint.
