About Us

At MatchFit Athletics we believe in striving for excellence in each of life’s challenges. Like those that we treat and train, we too endeavour to perform at our best.

Unfortunately from time to time our body’s physical attributes let us down, and whether it causes you problems in competition or in training, at work or at home, we believe we have the skills and knowledge to make you MatchFit again.

We pride ourselves on our ability to understand your injury mechanism and assess your movement dysfunction. This enables us to provide treatment, rehabilitation and conditioning appropriate to your functional and sport specific demands.

We support both elite athletes and weekend warriors alike. Whether your interest is professional or personal we’ll find and treat the athlete in you.
