What is an Exercise Physiologist?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) are experts in the field of health and fitness using sports science. 

The AEP’s of The Exercise Clinic excel in exercise interventions in areas ranging from chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity, to improve your strength and mobility following injury.

Our AEP’s also have experience in creating exercise programs for the gym, fitness centres, home-based exercise programs, swimming pools, and programs aimed at improving functional capacity, and provide a functional return to work programs.

We provide a tailored exercise plan based on your assessment to get you back to your best as soon as possible.

Working within such diverse multidisciplinary clinics, our AEP’s are able to collaborate closely with dietitians, physiotherapists, physicians and other therapists to optimise your outcomes.

Pathology domains covered by the services of AEPs include cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, musculoskeletal, cancers, kidney, respiratory / pulmonary and mental health, and any other conditions for which there is evidence that exercise can improve the client’s clinical status.”
