Frequently Asked Questions:
What is an Exercise Physiologist?
ESSA (Exercise and Sports Science Australia) describes the role of the exercise physiologist as follows:
“Accredited exercise physiologists (AEP) 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 behavioural change.
The aims of AEP interventions are to prevent or manage chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function health and wellness.”
How is an Exercise Physiologist different to a Personal Trainer?
An exercise physiologist is a recognised allied health professional who is qualified to provide advice and exercise rehabilitation for people with complex health needs. All exercise physiologists must have a four year university degree and extensive practical experience in order to be accredited with ESSA (Exercise and Sports Science Australia). If an integrated treatment approach is required, the exercise physiologist will liaise with other health professionals involved in your treatment.2
