What it’s like to be a Senior Exercise Physiologist at Longevity

Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, Edgecliff, Marrickville, Bella VistaRandwickLindfield and Balmain have seen amazing business growth over the years and two people who have seen it all, particularly in the past 3 years where we have expanded from 2 to 7 locations are our two Senior Exercise Physiologists, Angela Vitucci and Daniel Elias Arciuli. In todays blog they will be discussing what it is like to be a Senior Exercise Physiologist at Longevity and their experience over the years.


I was lucky enough to be the first full-time employee at Longevity Exercise Physiology Edgecliff. The team consisted of Jarrat Wood, the CEO, and 3 other casual staff between Edgecliff and Lindfield. Since then we have grown to 7 locations and 12 full-time staff members and this will be even more within the next couple of months. With this there has been a lot of change and exciting change at that.

My beginnings started with servicing clients, connecting with other allied health practitioners, professional development more so directed by Jarrat, and helping colleagues with ideas and problem solving. Since then, my role has changed to not only becoming a better EP myself and helping 3 other people but now having the responsibility to lead 5 other full time Exercise Physiologists, specifically at Edgecliff. Opportunities presented with this leadership include interviewing for the next team members, mentoring other staff members across other locations, ensuring growth for not only Edgecliff but the rest of the business, leading GP and other allied health meetings, supervising student placements, etc.

It has been very rewarding to see Ashleigh Mead who began at Edgecliff 2 years ago grow and is now confident to take on and lead our Randwick location herself. Ashleigh has used her mentorship from being at Edgecliff to implement the same at Randwick and is now in the process of building a team to lead. This opportunity is present for all who join our team.

The main reason I took this role was because of the career progression opportunity presented when I was interviewing and it has definitely lived up to what was set out, and there is so much more to come.


Being a Senior Exercise Physiologist at Longevity is a rewarding role, not only do you get to help clients achieve great health outcomes but you get to help and work with your team to achieve success and be the best Exercise Physiologists we can be.

My journey to being a Senior Exercise Physiologist at Longevity was exciting and challenging. I started as a casual working at Edgecliff and Lindfield and within 6 months I was offered a full-time position. From there I transitioned to Lindfield and was given the opportunity to grow my own location. We have now grown to have another full-time staff member and hopefully many more to come. Having a team now allows us to not only have a bigger effect within the community but personally gives me the opportunity to have a great team culture within the location.

Longevity values professional development and having a growth mindset every day. An area where a Senior Exercise Physiologist has a large role is within our weekly professional development sessions. Each week there is at least 2 hours of professional development for staff to upskill in certain areas they find challenging. We have meetings with our respective teams to talk about location specific topics and also with the entire team and founder, Jarrat Wood to discuss business related topics and other relevant areas.
