About Sam Leslie

Sam Leslie has been practicing for over 20 years and working with elite sport for the past 15. His experience extends from AFL to cycling to soccer to athletics, and more. Sam is Head Sports Physiotherapist of the Athletics Victoria and, more recently, Director of Medical Services for the Nitro Athletics. He has been Head Physio for the Australian team at the past three World Universiade Games, and lectures on DMA Clinical Pilates courses, and serves as a Strength Training Consultant to many of Australia’s best coaches and personally to over 20 of Australia’s best athletes.

His practice, MyPhysio Evolution, is regarded as one of the most progressive practices in the world, nurturing the concept that weak links in a kinetic chain, when corrected, not only reduce injury risk but lead to performance benefits. This is the basis of his current research at the University of Melbourne, introducing the concept of Direction Biased Resistance Training.
