Sporting background

Irwin has competed in a range of sports from a young age. In Perth, he played soccer at a high level before he took a keen interest in strength training while rehabilitating from his knee injury. He has competed in both powerlifting and bodybuilding. In 2020, he rekindled his love for running and in 2022 completed his first marathon in 3:03 at the Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival.

From his own experiences, Irwin has gained an awareness and insight into how much of a role physical activity, discipline
and social connection/community plays in the overall picture of our health and wellbeing. He is passionate about supporting his clients at The Physio Room in becoming stronger and more resilient versions of themselves.
