Speakers

Dr. Shelley Kay 

Exercise Physiologist 

Chris O'Brien Lifehouse 


Shelley has a PhD in exercise physiology with extensive experience in clinical practice, research and lecturing. She is interested in the mechanisms that explain how exercise can modify risk factors for disease, including cancer. Her research background involved investigating the influence of different types of exercise on changes in fat, muscle, and bone and how this impacts health and disease. This theme is directly relevant to many types of cancer. Her work in exercise and body composition has also involved many different populations from elite athletes to nonagenarians (the oldest was 98). 

 

"It's magic to see positive changes in people who are experiencing health challenges such as cancer," says Shelley. "I'm committed and passionate about delivering exercise medicine but I also understand how important it is to support and respect individual decisions to enhance confidence and sustain the benefits." We have lots of people in our clinic who have never exercised before and who say they would not consider going to a gym. Those participants feel the benefits and people here are happy. Our approach is to listen, start where the individual is ready to start, plan and encourage progression and to have a lot of fun".
