"It was more hands-on than what I’d experienced when I’d been treated for sports injuries," Jack explains. "They considered my whole body, and they never told me to stop climbing. I was intrigued." Jack approached Endeavour College of Natural Health about studying. "I was a ratbag at school, and I didn’t have the biosciences background. Endeavour offered bridging courses, I liked the content, and I could see it would be easy to move on to further study if I wanted to." He proudly finished the Myotherapy degree with flying colours. "In my last six months, I worked as an undergraduate myotherapist at a clinic. Being able to apply my knowledge really got me ahead in my studies," Jack says. "By the time I finished, I felt ready for the professional world," he says.Jack now works at the same Brisbane clinic, where he first received treatment as a rock climber. "Myotherapy is the best job in the world. It gives you the freedom and flexibility to build your life the way you want it," he says. Jack splits his time between the clinic and Brisbane’s climbing gyms, where he also runs a mobility class based around myotherapy. He has also attracted a lot of clients from his chosen sport and is carving out a niche in the industry. "Getting to work with something I’m passionate about makes coming to work a breeze," he laughs. With plans to launch his own brand, Rock Therapy, Jack wants to teach, lecture and tutor as a way of giving back. As for his ultimate dream – it’s to travel with the Australian team as they tackle the World Cup circuit or compete at the next Olympic Games, where rock climbing will be included for the first time.
