Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are allied health professionals with the highest level of training for prescribing exercise to individuals. AEPs hold, at a minimum, a 4-year bachelor degree. This equips AEPs with the knowledge, skills and competencies to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people who have acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries and disabilities. These interventions include health and physical activity education, advice and support, and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.
Our Exercise Physiologist works alongside our physiotherapy team to provide effective and appropriate exercise prescription. A personalised exercise program that suits your lifestyle and limitations can be developed. Whether you are after help in the gym, or just a basic program for home, our Exercise Physiologist can help. Exercise is medicine and getting started on a effective program is easier than you think.
