John Polley (JP) and Corinne Austin

John Polley (JP) and Corinne Austin are international presenters and practitioners in the field of health, movement, wellness and functional medicine.

JP has several roles as a movement professional. Firstly, as owner of Be Free Movement Lifestyle Wellness in Perth, he sees clients requiring therapy and conditioning to overcome setbacks from over use, surgery, injury or illness, as well as professional athletes requiring that little extra at the top end to make a difference in their sport.

Part of his work here is seeing individuals with pain resulting from their work across all fields, from desk work through to strenuous manual labour at mine sites.

Secondly, as an educator, JP is a specialist in integrated myofascial movement; one of a handful in Australia and New Zealand. Taking account of connective tissues in addition to the muscles means a more complete understanding of the human body and the way it is designed to move, meaning JP’s knowledge is sought after at major conferences across the region. He has presented every year since 2011 at the main events held in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. In addition he has conducted teaching tours for the last two years and in 2018 was selected as the only featured presenter for the Exercise New Zealand Roadshow, covering eight cities across the country.

JP’s knowledge and ability with communication has led to roles as master instructor for some global brands of exercise equipment, both teaching instructors and writing content for those companies. He also writes and creates video content on effective movement for national and global companies.

JP also runs his own education and mentorship program, called ‘The Next Level’ for those wanting to start learning his skills in myofascial appraisal and prescription in movement. People from a range of fields from exercise, to physiotherapy, to manual therapy and Eastern medicine have so far learnt from him.

Thirdly, as a consultant, JP has visited workplaces and to appraise their movement and create effective strategies to reduce workplace fatigue, soreness and potential injury. The highly adaptable system of movement JP has collated can be tailored to any job in any environment. Each person or organisation he has worked with so far, have required a fresh approach and creation of new practices, which JP has developed.

Finally, JP has a reputation as an early adopter of the latest effective practices in movement and health. Whether that be using a fascial understanding of movement, genetic assessment for personal health outcomes or using play as a form of high intensity exercise, he brings a progressive outlook to everything he does. Whatever project he tackles, it is viewed as a unique challenge, with unique requirements, requiring unique practices. JP’s ability to adapt his knowledge and skills is well known and he’s one of the few people excited by varied and different challenges outside of the norm.

Corinne Austin is hugely experienced in the health, exercise and functional medicine industry. In her time she has received many plaudits, including the Exercise New Zealand Personal Trainer of the Year in 2017. She has dedicated her life to creating happy bodies and therefore, happy people.  

Working on the premise that there is a whole lot of wiggle room for improving both the scope and success of preventative medicine, Corinne has undertaken significant professional education in the last 6yrs.  From Functional Medicine through to Myofascial Mobility, Immune System Investigation and Lymphatics through to Visceral Manipulation, Corinne has covered a vast array of the deeper health and wellness content under some of the biggest names in the Functional Medicine & Movement World.  This enables her to collate and utilise cutting-edge information and expertise so she is able to complete thorough investigations of all of her clients, leading them towards creating a happy body experience. 

Her skills as a coach and therapist has seen her business, Fit Fix in Whangarei, New Zealand become a leading example of how eclectic services can be combined for great results and great success as a facility.  Setting herself apart from traditional Personal Training or fitness facilities, she utilises her entire toolbox to help coach clients not just into a space of improved strength and fitness, but one where they become much more aware of how their body feels, and gain an understanding into what the different signs and symptoms that the body gives us mean.  Whether it be utilising movement and medicine or a form of ‘physical counselling’, or enhancing the internal health of one’s body to in turn provide a happier experience of their external body, Corinne ensures the time she spends with clients is as holistic in nature as what they are ready to receive and hear. 

In 2018 she donned the cap of educator in the industry, climbing the fence from student and practitioner to one where she wishes to coach other industry leaders by offloading her own unique arsenal of education and experience to date.  And since first meeting John Polley 6 years or so ago, his work and leadership has helped her immensely both personally and professionally – to the point where they collectively recognised that a collaboration between the two seemed like the next best step. As a team they’ve called themselves the Happy Humans, and have since co created the Next Level 2 mentorship program and Lymphascial Reset Protocol.
