Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) hold a four-year University degree and are allied health professionals who specialize in the delivery of exercise for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. AEPs provide support for clients with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, mental health problems, cancer, arthritis, pulmonary disease and more. Our AEPs are registered with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and are recognized by most private health insurers.
Take control of your health
Accredited Exercise Physiologists specialise in clinical exercise interventions for persons at high-risk of developing, or with existing chronic and complex medical conditions and injuries. These interventions are provided by exercise delivery including health and physical activity education, advice and support; and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioral change.
An Exercise Physiologist will assess your current health and medical status and work with you one on one in helping you take control of your health through exercise interventions, goal setting and lifestyle modification. The aim of an AEP intervention is to prevent or manage chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one's optimal physical function, health or wellness.
