An exercise physiologist is a health professional, specialising in promoting and teaching the benefits of exercise. Our patients benefit from enhanced fitness and overall good health under the careful attention of highly trained professionals. Exercise physiology involves the study of the human body and the effects that regular, targeted exercise can have on it, both mentally and physically. With a focus on the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and endocrine systems, we will create a personalised plan of exercises for fitness or rehabilitation.
What Can Exercise Physiology Treat?
Customised treatment plans have been used in the maintenance and improvement of multiple acute and chronic conditions, including but not limited to arthritis, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, asthma, depression, and cardiovascular diseases. The proven benefits of working with an exercise physiologist include:
- Education on the inner workings of your body
- Exercise that is tailored to every step of your journey
- A greater sense of control over your own body
- Evidence-based results
- Weight loss
- Treatment of medical conditions and their symptoms
- Increased self-confidence and enjoyment of life
- Improved mental health
