Evolutio - Practitioners


Alex-Drew-Physio-Melbourne

Alex Drew

Physiotherapist, MAPA

Role: Commander in Chief

Age: 29

Height: 5' 11

 

Raised as a sandgroper over in W.A, Alex was handed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and asked to leave the university lecturers in peace for good.  As a matter of filling his time, he also graduated from the Royal Military College as an Infantry Officer in 2008 after finally pointing his rifle in the right direction and making his bed to an elite level.

Moving to Melbourne in 2010 in an episode similar to that movie Coyote ugly, Alex has since worked in a few sports physio clinics across Melbourne, coached CrossFit, done power-lifting training courses, walked a 45km mt buller trail run and worked at North Melbourne football club.

Alex founded Evolutio in 2013 to provide a hub for the next generation of great physio minds to work together on high level athletes. He now consults and chooses the clinic music. Apart from that he's not allowed to do anything else.

 


Bayden Campbell

Physiotherapist

Age: 28

Conscripted from rural Tasmania, Bayden is the fourth best item to be exported from the iconic state, following in no specific order, pinot noir, Sullivans cove whiskey and Simon Baker.

Built on the old fashioned principles of hard yakka and earning your dinner (we're not actually sure if he grew up on a farm) Bayden brings a wealth of experience as a Physio in strength and conditioning and high level rehab to the team at Evolutio.

To be honest, if it wasn't for the black cow steak bistro in Launceston, we might never have gone to Tasmania to recruit a team member. However after meeting Bayden and being told by authorities we had to have diversity amongst our team, we very quickly realised he was a constant over achiever and as rare as David Boon. So we bought him.

 


peta-glaister-remedial-massage-therapist

 

Two years ago, we selected a group of 15 candidates we thought could one day be up to the job of joining Evolutio as our Remedial massage therapist. We sent these 15 candidates to a remote island for two years and they battled each other on various tasks, eating only rice and hand caught fish wearing bandannas until one was left.

It turns out Peta grew up on the actual block our new clinic is established on. Which is why it was compassionate of us to give someone a job in the household before evicting them and knocking down the old family home with a bulldozer.

She lived in France for 6 years and can legitimately barbell hip thrust 200kg, which is handy if you ever get your small car bogged. Don't call the RACV, call us and we'll happily send her out to hip thrust your car out of trouble.

Sean Prendergast

Physiotherapist

Age: 27

What do these three people have in common? Liam Neeson, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Farrell. Apart from the majority starring in super films (sorry Colin) they all hail from the tropical islands of Ireland. Known for its warmth and lack of alcohol, Ireland has also given birth to Sean, an extremely talented Physio with donkeys years experience (many years) in American football, Gaelic and Hurling (the Irish kind, not the late night one).

As a team event, we've sat down and watched Brad Pitt in Snatch three times in the last week in order to improve our ability to understand Sean. Safe to say, we still can't... but that shouldn't discourage you. Similar to Bayden, he's like hen's teeth (rare) and will offer to wet your tea (get you a tea) and if he's not here, it's either Friday 17th March or he's at me ma's.
