Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleCastle HillRandwickPymbleBalmain, Kingsgrove, Neutral Bay, Coburg – Melbourne, and Barrie, Ontario – Canada  have seen significant growth since Longevity’s opening in 2014 by CEO Jarrat Wood.

In January 2018, Angela Vitucci was the first full time employee and she tells of her story today about what the clients mean to her and her career progression within the company.

From Angela:

The reason we do what we do is for you

Being an Exercise Physiologist, as a profession, is one of the most rewarding jobs you can have. Exercise Physiologists prevent and treat a range of conditions and injuries. On a daily basis, we see someone improve their submax cardiovascular test, increase their seated row by 5kg, complete an extra set of sit to stands, just to name a few. What does this mean to the client though?

As an Exercise Physiologist, we get more of a thrill of hearing the stories from clients coming back to us and telling us that they can walk to the shops without becoming breathless, they’ve been able to run in the City2Surf,  they can get down on the floor and play with their grandchildren, they can return to sport, they haven’t had a back spasm in months, etc. These are the stories that we love hearing and confirms the hard work and dedication someone puts into their exercise routine is helping to achieve the initial question of ‘Why have you come to see an Exercise Physiologist?’

Angela’s look back

When I started at Longevity Exercise Physiology and Personal Training in January 2018, there were 2 locations and 5 employees. Now in March 2023, Longevity has 10 locations and 32 employees. Over the years, we have been able to help more and more people with the goal to complete 112,320 hours of Exercise services in our community this year.

With Longevity’s growth, and continual plans to grow, it was time for a restructure to ensure the systems and standards of Longevity are upheld and the person that starts their exercise journey today has the same experience with their EP as clients have from myself and other team members over the years.

With this, a restructure of a senior leadership team was developed; Jarrat Wood, Angela Vitucci, Ashleigh Mead (Team Leader at Randwick), Georgia Wassall (Team Leader at Drummoyne) and Luke Dorizas (Team Leader at Neutral Bay). Since October last year, I have been in a transition period to Operations Manager. Part of the delay in this transition was finding the right EP to replace me at Edgecliff to ensure clients had a seamless transition. At the end of the day, our clients come first, and we want to ensure everyone has a good experience at Longevity – clients, partners, external parties, and our team members too.

“One person can’t change the health of the world, but the bigger our team, the bigger effect we can have.”

Although I am sad to no longer be seeing clients on a weekly basis, I know the best thing for Longevity and for my career is to move into the Operations Manager role. This will enable me to help mentor more and more EPs to be as successful as myself and in turn help more and more clients like yourself. One person can’t change the health of the world, but the bigger our team, the bigger effect we can have.  This will keep me satisfied knowing that my new role will allow me to challenge myself personally while continuing the vision of impacting the lifespan and quality of life of our community with personalised Longevity exercise prescription.

Longevity is committed to upholding our care and value we provide to the community, and endeavour to continue improving our services for you into the future.

From myself and the team at Longevity, we wish you well and hope you enjoy your experience with Longevity.
