Zac TurnerDoctor of Physiotherapy, Bachelor of Education

    Why did you become a physio?
    Growing up as a keen sportsman, I was fascinated by all things related to sport. This developed into a passion for sports science and human movement leading me to complete a degree as a Physical Education teacher. Unsatisfied that I was contributing within the sports industry as much as I’d hoped I then went on to complete my studies in Physiotherapy, graduating from Bond University in 2017.

    Currently, I work as a physiotherapist with the Gold Coast Suns AFLW, as well as helping people of all levels reach and exceed their physical goals at POGO physio.
