For people wanting to break the cycle of long term pain or recover from injury
Physiotherapy that's truly integrated
Pain is the last symptom to appear and is generally the first to go.
So to treat injuries or persistent niggles properly we need to go beyond just pain management.
At Lift3 we are pushing boundaries in our integrated rehab model to bring together Physiotherapists, Coaches and Nutritionists into a single fixed fee rehab program to go beyond basic pain management.
If you’re looking for a physio to help you get back to life or sport this is the place for you.

Hi, my name’s Aaron and I am the Head Physiotherapist at Lift3. Our aim is to create an integrated facility that will cater to all your rehab and performance needs.
I studied at Sydney University and completed a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science in 2014, before completing my Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy in 2016. Since then I have moved to the Central Coast, working in the private sector with particular interest in resistance training and powerlifting. In the past 5 years I’ve completed further post-graduate training in sports and spinal Physiotherapy and advanced dry needling. I’ve undertaken my own resistance training for over 10 years and enjoy social sports including soccer and downhill mountain biking.
I find no greater fulfillment than taking an individual from an injured or impaired state, facilitating the rehab process and seeing them return at 110%. I truly believe that by combining the amazing new Lift3 facility with VALD Performance testing equipment and an integrated approach with S+C, we will be the top spot on the Central Coast to achieve best outcomes.
So feel free to book in a consult or have a chat in the gym if you have any questions and to see if I can help you!
I was born and bred in Gorokan on the Central Coast. To put it bluntly, I love sport. Growing up playing just about every sport on offer, Football (the round ball one) was my sport of choice. An ACL injury in my early teens triggered my desire to be a Physiotherapist. I’ve been working in the Physiotherapy/Rehabilitation space for over a decade.
In 2017 I was accepted into Physiotherapy at the University of Newcastle. In my time as an undergraduate I worked in numerous sporting roles, including a season as Assistant Physio with the Central Coast Mariners FC A-League team + roles throughout the CCMFC Academy, Newcastle Jets FC, Woy Woy Netball Association State Netball (U13s – Opens) & Ourimbah Razorbacks Rugby Club.
Following graduation in 2020 I have been working as a Physiotherapist in private practice and remained involved with CCMFC, previously as Academy Head Physio and currently in a relief role for the NPL + A-League team.
In my spare time you can find me on the Golf course, out running or walking with my Doggos or out and about with friends and family.
I also have my level 1 ASCA S+C accreditation. I have worked with a wide range of clientele across my time working in the Physio world. No prizes for guessing, my interest area is the footballing athlete, I do however have a background in Golf, Powerlifting and Rugby.
In regards to injuries, I enjoy managing Knee (ACL, MCL, LCL, meniscus), ankle injuries, lower limb soft tissue (hamstring, calf, quad injuries) & Lumbar spine issues.
For the remainder of the 2023 season I will be working directly with Berkeley Vale Soccer Club.
At Lift3, we have taken the guesswork out of Physiotherapy.

frequently asked questions
No you do not. You can book and come and see a physiotherapist without referral. If you have Joint or muscular pain then generally a Physio should be the first place you go. If a further referral is required then you may be directed back to your GP or directly to the relevant specialist.
In setting up Physiotherapy at Lift3, we’ve put the patients best interest at the centre of our practice. By allowing 60 minutes it allows our Physios to spend more time getting to the root cause of your issue and then work out a better strategy for your comeback. We want to avoid rushing a diagnosis and just masking any pain which then returns soon after anyway. Lift3 is about getting you back to 100% effectively, for now and the future.
We certainly do. We have a Hicaps Terminal on site that you can swipe your card through as needed. Alternatively on the Rehab programs you have the option of paying and then receiving invoices/statements that you can then use to claim against private health
When you sign onto our rehab program we want to get you the best results possibly. So for the price of your Physio consults we give you free coaching and membership. This means you are only paying for Physiotherapy which is what is covered by your health fund.
