Brodie Cambourne is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and has been working in the area of the brain and exercise since 1996 when she opened a Kids Fitness Centre in Wollongong NSW
Brodie became interested in brain development and brain health after working with babies and eventually parents who may be experiencing depression. Her programs focussed on providing low anxiety learning environments for parents and carers so as babies could be provided optimal environments to develop and learn.
Brodie now applies low anxiety learning to people of all ages and abilities and focuses on the brain requiring emotionally safe environments for improved physical movement.
Brodie has delivered health programs using the low anxiety, strength based approach in women's refuges and isolated and vulnerable communities.
She has developed and applied the Fiteracy teaching method to develop exercise programs for people experiencing PTSD, depression, anxiety and social isolation.
After becoming fascinated by the mirror neuron and the vast amount of learning that occurs in the early years , Brodie spent the last 5 years immersed in the new research coming through in the area of neuroplasticity and the brain’s ability to continue to learn and adapt to change.
Brodie combines exercise, music and outdoor adventures such as Stand Up Paddling and Kayaking and team work in all her exercise programs
