Gateway Life in Wollongong is delighted to welcome Trini, our new exercise physiologist, to our dedicated team. Trini’s unwavering passion for exercise physiology and her commitment to helping individuals maintain their quality of life and independence make her an invaluable asset to our wellness center. With her extensive education and expertise, she is poised to make a significant impact on the health and well-being of our clients.
Trini’s journey in the field of exercise physiology began with her studies in Exercise and Sports Science in Chile. Seeking to deepen her knowledge and skills, she made the decision to move to Australia, where she pursued a Masters in Exercise Physiology. The program further honed her expertise, providing her with a solid foundation in understanding the intricacies of the human body and its response to exercise.
Driven by her passion for helping older individuals maintain their independence and quality of life, Trini embarked on a Ph.D. that delved into the effects of exercise on this population. Her research focused on developing exercise programs specifically tailored to the needs of older individuals, with the goal of promoting physical function and overall well-being. Trini’s Ph.D. work emphasised the importance of exercise in maintaining independence, improving mobility, and preventing age-related decline.
Exercise physiologists play a vital role in the realm of allied health, specialising in the prescription of exercise programs for various populations. With their in-depth understanding of the human body’s physiological responses to exercise, they design personalised plans that cater to individual needs, goals, and health conditions.
Trini’s approach to exercise physiology is rooted in her extensive education and experience. She believes in empowering individuals to take control of their health through exercise and guiding them on their wellness journey. Her expertise in supporting the ageing population has equipped her with a deep understanding of the unique challenges they face. With a compassionate and personalised approach, Trini works closely with clients to develop exercise programs that target their specific needs and aspirations.
Trini’s dedication to promoting independence and enhancing quality of life through exercise is at the core of her practice. She recognises that maintaining physical function and mobility is essential for older individuals to maintain their autonomy. By tailoring exercise routines to their abilities and preferences, Trini helps her clients build strength, improve balance, and increase overall fitness, enabling them to live life to the fullest.
With Trini’s arrival, Gateway Life strengthens its commitment to offering comprehensive and individualised services to our clients. Trini’s expertise in exercise physiology perfectly aligns with our mission of providing a unique and transformative health experience. Together, we strive to empower individuals to take charge of their health, improve their fitness, manage chronic conditions, and enhance their overall well-being.
Beyond her professional accomplishments, Trini finds great joy in living in the beautiful region of the Southern Highlands.

Her connection to the local community and her commitment to its health and wellness make her a valued member of the Gateway Life family.
