Our Founder

The Centre for STRONG Medicine was founded in 2014 by the late Associate Professor Nalin Singh, a man of many gifts and an unfailing passion and drive to provide the highest level of care to all his patients.

The Centre for Strong Medicine was the vehicle to deliver Associate Professor Singh’s passion and life’s work of integrating exercise into the mainstream care and management of patients suffering from chronic conditions.


Thankfully this mission lives on at the clinic as his wife, Professor Maria Fiatarone Singh, has taken up the position of Specialist Geriatrician. Alongside the team of Exercise Physiologists, The Centre for Strong Medicine continues to offer and deliver individualised exercise programs to patients suffering from chronic illness.
We are incredibly proud to continue Associate Professor Singh’s work.

One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life was to attend the Centre for Strong Medicine in Pymble which is run by Professor Maria Fiatarone Singh. It nearly did not happen because when I found out that the professor is a professor of geriatrics I thought, I am not a geriatric and was not interested. However due to the care and kindness of Maria and her staff, and after having talks with them I was so impressed with them I decided to sign up.

I have been very ill for 4 years and 5 specialists were looking after me for 10 months when I was in and out of hospital and getting nowhere. One day, another of my specialists suggested I might do very well if I went to see Professor Fiatarone Singh.

I cannot say enough about the staff and Maria who is so kind, caring, and a wonderful Doctor. My health has gone ahead in leaps and bounds because of the wonderful atmosphere in the Gym, and the kindness and caring of the staff.

I would definitely recommend anyone who was thinking of going to the Clinic to not hesitate like I did because I lost precious time. I honestly cannot believe how much healthier I have become and I would not miss my 2 days at the clinic for anything.
