Is Exercise Physiology right for me?
Exercise Physiology is suitable for anyone who has a sustained injury or medical condition that can be improved with exercise treatment or management.
Exercise Physiologists are qualified to prescribe exercise for health, rehabilitation and fitness.The skills and knowledge of an Exercise Physiologist are developed over five years of university education which enables them to treat proficiently in a variety of settings. This includes land-based exercise, water-based exercise (warm water therapy) and through education via individualised health counselling and facilitated group programs.
Exercise Physiologists can also work with healthy individuals to assist them in optimising their health and fitness goals, leading to improved function and ability to complete activities of daily living.
