What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
Accredited Exercise Physiologists are university trained, recognised allied health professionals who design and deliver exercise interventions for the preventions and management of a range of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, metabolic, neurologic, cancer, pain and mental health conditions.
They can also provide advanced health and physical activity education, advice and support to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Exercise Physiologists are responsible for conditioning clients to higher levels of physical fitness and improved health, while staying aware of safety issues that can be associated with exercise in those with, but not limited to, acute, sub-acute and chronic conditions.

Exercise Physiology or Physiotherapy – What is the difference?
Exercise physiology is sometimes confused with physiotherapy, whilst we may offer many of the same services there are some distinct differences. Along with treatments for muscle and joint rehabilitation, utilising evidence-based movement interventions exercise physiologists can also provide treatment for diseases and conditions not traditionally treated by physiotherapists.
Do I need a referral to see an Exercise Physiologist?
No, you do not need a referral, so book in for an obligation free, initial assessment to see how one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists can help you. Please note a GP referral is required if you are being seen under an EPC plan, DVA or compensable client.
As the service is delivered by an accredited exercise physiologist, health fund rebates are available to clients, should you have the right level of cover.
