Pierre Zumkley

A graduate of the Melbourne University’s Doctor of Physiotherapy program, Pierre started with Beleura in 2016. A former competitive powerlifter, Pierre’s passion for exercise and strength based rehabilitation sees him well versed in the treatment of lower back and lifting-based injuries.
Pierre’s enthusiasm also extends to group and individual pilates and exercise classes. This has allowed him to effectively aid participants at all levels of fitness or injury, to effectively reduce their pain, improve strength and most importantly improve their bodies’ capabilities.

Macgregor Hall 

 Mac is a very experienced physiotherapist who is currently completing a PhD in pain research and has very high level expertise in ongoing pain conditions. He previously studied medicine in the USA before completing his Physiotherapy degree in Australia.  Mac is an independent physiotherapist contracting his services to Beleura around his academic commitments at Monash University and we are very grateful to have his services available to our patients.

Ryan Nicholls

Ryan completed his Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree at Monash University while working extensively with Peninsula-based footballers in his head-trainer role at an MPNFL club. He enjoys treating people with injuries from all sports, jobs & hobbies, helping them understand their injuries and becoming stronger than before. He has a special interest in the shoulder and chronic/long-term pain and provides people with a supportive environment in which they can feel heard & achieve their goals. Ryan is a key part of Beleura’s ongoing professional development program bringing relevant research to our clinical group to help drive ongoing learning within our clinicians.

Born and raised on the Mornington Peninsula, Ryan enjoys hiking, swimming, tennis, reading and exploring his local area. He particularly enjoys walking his dogs down the beach or walking along the local boardwalk on nice days.

Tim Dirago

Tim is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.  His professional journey began in Frankston South, which saw him running group classes and producing video/written educational health material.  Tim also engaged in extracurricular volunteer work. He collaborated with other health care professionals to accelerate his learning and accomplish what he had envisioned from the start,  providing the best possible service to his clients.

Tim joined the Beleura team at Hastings in 2019. He brings a detailed knowledge of the field with a particular focus on:

  • Strength and conditioning
  • Structured group classes catering for all levels of fitness
  • Client-centred exercise selection and programming

Beyond the bounds of Exercise Physiology, you can hear Tim in the shed attempting to build furniture and working on his car. If weather permits, embarking on spontaneous treks around the Mornington Peninsula with his partner.

Tim specialises in exercise prescription but and has a strong interest in the complexities involved in achieving great outcomes. Therefore, he also continues with ongoing research in nutrition, pharmacology and psychology to maximise benefits for his clients.
