Accredited Exercise Physiologists specialise in designing exercise and physical activity programs for health and fitness. If you are looking to prevent or manage a particular condition, improve your health and fitness, or adapt your current physical activity routine, an Exercise Physiologist can help.

Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists have completed a minimum 4-year university degree and are ESSA (Exercise and Sports Science Australia) accredited allied health professionals. In many instances they will hold the equivalent of a Masters Degree. Exercise Physiologists typically see people for the management of complex chronic conditions and provide specialised exercise based treatment for cardiovascular, metabolic, pulmonary, neurological, psychological and musculoskeletal conditions including: obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure & cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, stroke, MS, Parkinson’s disease, chronic lung conditions (COPD), asthma, arthritis, osteoporosis, chronic pain & chronic fatigue, falls and balance and many more.
