Brad BeerPOGO Founder & Physio Director

B. Physiotherapy/ B. Exercise Science (APAM)

Why did you become a physio?

My interest in physiotherapy began when my running coach referred me to see a terrific physio named Suzanne who lived and hour and a half north of my country town. I was a frustrated and injured junior triathlete with aspirations of progressing out of the junior triathlon ranks into the professional triathlon ranks.

I can’t recall much career coaching while at high school so when my physio said during a consult ‘you’d be a great physio one day’, the seed was sown. Years later I started studying exercise science at the Gold Coast’s Griffith University before transferring into the physiotherapy course.

Physiotherapy was the perfect career in which I could pursue my love for helping people to maximise their physical potential. This passion was borne of my own struggles and frustrations as a junior triathlete.
