Meet Shaneen, the Founder and Director of LifeInMotion Exercise Physiology Clinic. It’s safe to say that she has poured her heart and soul into this clinic and the results speak for themselves – a happy, healthy, wholesome clinic that continues to grow. As a Practitioner, Shaneen specialises in Cardiac Rehabilitation and Heart Failure and is a cut above the rest when it comes to anything “Heart Health”. Shaneen has recently transferred back to the clinic to conduct Phase 2 and Phase 3 Cardiac Rehabilitation and Heart Failure services at LifeInMotion. Shaneen is also currently completing her Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Education through Deakin University.

In her spare time, Shaneen loves enjoying the outdoors, a glass of wine or two and spending time with her family. Don’t let the relaxed beach vibe fool you, this little pocket rocket is constantly in training for an up coming Triathlon or Ironman Event.

Shaneen will be taking new Cardiac patients from Jan 2020.
