Exercise has been an integral part of my life since I remember. As a toddler I used to push my pram several kilometres before climbing in it to have a short rest. Over the years I have been a competitive swimmer and soccer player as well as recreational runner, karate athlete and a gym goer. These days I referee high level soccer, coach swimmers and still run and exercise regularly. These exposures have given me a fascination into how the human body moves and adapts and how to look after it. I became an Exercise Physiologist not just because of my love of sport, but because I genuinely believe that exercise is medicine. After graduating from the University of Queensland in 2020, I’ve worked with people suffering from injuries, chronic musculoskeletal conditions and mental illnesses. I enjoy helping individuals from all walks of life and conditions while implementing evidence-based exercise prescription to enhance their quality of life and functional capacity. The Bone Clinic provides me with the opportunity to implement my passion to the fullest. Here I coach the Onero program to improve bone health and perform our comprehensive physical assessments that contribute to the ongoing program of research conducted at The Bone Clinic.
Maroochydore was the third training facility we opened back in 2017. It is only a training facility and we operate out of The Country Women’s Association (CWA). The facility is located at 104 Memorial Drive, Maroochydore (opposite the M’dore RSL). There is plenty of free parking inside the boom gates of CWA. We will give you a code for the boom gates before your first visit!
We recently just sold Maroochydore to one of our long-standing coaches, Jessica Ebbersten.

I am a PhD candidate at Griffith University under the supervision of Belinda Beck, investigating the influence of antiresorptive bone medication on bone-targeted exercise to prevent osteoporotic fractures in postmenopausal women.
I graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich where I studied Human Movement Sciences. In my master thesis, I investigated the role of gait variability parameters in predicting fall risk in seniors at high risk for falling. In the two years after I graduated, my research focus was on the effectiveness of motor-cognitive multitask training and strength training to reduce fall risk in seniors with cognitive impairment. Following the relocation from Switzerland to Australia in 2016, I started working as a research assistant at The Bone Clinic examining the effect of high intensity resistance and impact training on symptoms of knee and hip osteoarthritis before I took on my PhD in 2017.
I am convinced that exercise is amongst the most important strategies to prevent and manage chronic conditions and associated personal, societal and economic burden in the long term. I aspire to contribute to bridge the gap between exercise specialist and other health care providers to consider exercise as a standard intervention to improve musculoskeletal health.
My name is Donna Bunting and I am The Bone Clinic’s Receptionist (Front of House).
I have worked at TBC for 3 years now and have watched it grow from strength to strength.
My job entails all contact with clients and practitioners and I love assisting our awesome staff and helping all of our wonderful clientele with any questions they may have. I am very good at communication and my skills are great customer service, good listener, exceptional multi-tasker, and I have a very high standard in organisational skills. In my role as Front of House you need to always have a happy and welcoming smile and to help people relax and feel comfortable as it can be a very daunting task coming for your initial assessment and I hope I can achieve this goal for everyone. I can at times try for perfection but in my role that can’t always happen. I have always been a Receptionist and love it as I think that is my main strength and I am good at it.
During and after graduating from the University of Queensland in 2016 as an Exercise Scientist I’ve worked with the very young, the very mature and everything in between. Regardless of age or experience level, exercise is about loading appropriately and doing the basics well. Working at The Bone Clinic I’m constantly amazed at how a small change can make a big impact on a clients quality of life. It is the reason I got into this industry and the reason I am here at TBC.
I graduated from Queensland University of Technology in 2017 with a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Hons) and have established myself as a valuable member of The Bone Clinic team. I am a qualified DXA technician, who runs exercise classes and conducts Exercise Physiology consultations at our Coorparoo facility. I am passionate about bone health, and am a firm believer that exercise is the best medicine. This interest in exercise stems from a background in competitive gymnastics, representing Queensland. I have also competed successfully in hockey, basketball, athletics and touch football. My greatest satisfaction is seeing our clients everyday, and the improvements they make with their strength, mobility and bone health.
I began working at The Bone Clinic in July 2015 having graduated with honours in Clinical Exercise Physiology from QUT. As a mature-aged graduate, with a longstanding interest in health and wellness and passion for evidence-based practice, The Bone Clinic was a perfect match for me. My approach to exercise prescription is strongly influenced by the study of biomechanics – in particular, the influence that physical forces have on our bodies at the cellular level and the power of mechanotransduction in shaping our bodies. While the science may be complex, I promote natural human movement using simple methods that increase body awareness and improve movement patterns. Healthy ageing and natural movement is my passion and I love coaching people in how to move well and develop strength, power, and mobility. I have a particular interest in pelvic floor health and I am passionate about integrating pelvic and musculoskeletal health.
I graduated in 2004 from QUT with double degree in both nutrition and dietetics and human movement studies. I started working in the health industry as an exercise physiologist for UQ Sport. I have over 14 years experience as a dietitian, working with a range of clients from new mothers to professional athletes to veterans. I have worked in a variety of settings including the Wesley Weight Management Clinic, Queensland Health, Queensland Academy of Sport as well as private practice. I also worked as the Brisbane Lions Football Club’s Sports Dietitian from 2010-2013.
I am mum to a 6 and 4 year old and understand too well how life can get busy and how challenging it can be to keep a consistent healthy, active lifestyle. I use my professional expertise and personal insight to provide individualised advice to help you meet your goals.
