Dr Andrius Ramonas

Sports Physician Specialist

Andrius completed his sports medicine training at the University of Vilnius in Lithuania. He has worked with elite and recreational athletes to improve their wellbeing and injury management. In 2012, he was invited to join the Lithuanian medical team for the Lithuanian national team at the London Olympics.

Andrius’ interest in the physiology of exercise performance inspired him to travel to New Zealand, where he completed his PhD in Exercise Physiology and Sport Nutrition. As part of his academic journey, Andrius worked with the New Zealand Sailing Team and helped them to prepare for the 2022 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Andrius enjoys using a broad set of skills – from diagnostics & management of sporting injuries to advising on the best nutrition strategies to improve performance.
