Simon Hockings


B.Comn Sport Mgt

Cert III & IV Fitness


Simon grew up in Parkes NSW. He was a keen Rugby Union player from a young age and fortunate enough to represent the Australian Schoolboys and Australian under 21's. This set him on the path to being a professional rugby player with the ACT Brumbies as well as playing in England and Italy. It was through this time that Simon completed a degree in Communications & Sports Management as well as Certificate III and IV in Fitness (Personal Training). 


In 2007 while playing rugby in Italy Simon sustained a serious lower back injury and was forced to retire from professional rugby. This was possibly a blessing in disguise as he stacked on 6 kilo's in 3 months eating his way through all the pizza and pasta he could whilst playing for Venezia Mestre.

At this point Simon decided to pursue his interest in Physio by completing the Graduate Entry Masters Degree at the University of Sydney.


Physio Simon’s passion (besides paddle boarding which you will hear all about) is in Biomechanics, Myofascial Structure, Neural Dynamics, Temporomandibular Dysfunctions and Traditional Eastern Therapy Techniques. 


Simon enjoys paddle boarding, paddle boarding and paddle boarding. He is now trying to learn to surf. Besides that he is a family man and loves spending time with his wife Rachel, and their four kids.
