Exercise Physiologist

What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists are allied health professionals, providing exercise and lifestyle therapies for the prevention and management of chronic disease, injury and disability. An Accredited Exercise Physiologist specialises 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. AEP’s are the most qualified health professional to prescribe exercise for people with chronic disease. (Exercise and Sport Science Australia ESSA)

The aims of AEP clinical exercise programs are to prevent or manage chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring your optimal physical function, health or wellness. (Exercise is Medicine www.exerciseismedicine.org.au)
