Heidi Clarke


Heidi graduated from a Bachelor of Exercise Science and Rehabilitation with first class honours, a long long time ago in November 2004 and has worked at Body Dynamics Illawarra ever since.

Heidi’s passion for Exercise Physiology comes from years of first hand experience in witnessing how function and quality of life can return through individualised and specific movement or as she likes to say ‘Movement with Purpose’.

Heidi shares her knowledge and experience through her dedication to student training under the University prac placements and for this she was awarded the inaugural ‘Practicum Supervisor of the Year Award’ from our governing body Exercise and Sport Science Australia in 2011.

Heidi was lucky enough to become the owner of Body Dynamics Illawarra in April 2016 and with the Body Dynamics teams works to provide the highest quality and knowledge based exercise service in the Illawarra and far south coast to get you to your full health potential, all whilst having a bit of fun and a laugh.

Matt joined the BoDI team in May 2017, after completing his Bachelor of Exercise Science and Rehabilitation (with Distinction) at the University of Wollongong in 2016. Fresh out of university, Matt is extremely keen and excited about helping to improve the quality of life of all clients. With 7 years baseball and 16 years tennis experience, Matt has a keen eye for movement skills and coordination, and hopes to combine this with his passion for anatomy to improve clients’ musculoskeletal concerns and achieve their movement goals. He is also enthusiastic about working with children and disabilities, fostered through 6 years of tennis coaching and clinical placements with the Disability Trust. Matt has an easy-going, light-hearted nature and is always up for a smile, joke and laugh to make the rehab process as fun and engaging as possible
