The delivery of exercise intervention is done through specific exercise prescription, health and physical activity education and support, and a focus on behavioural change and lifestyle modification.
An Accredited Exercise Physiologist has completed a 4 year University degree and more than 500 hours of clinical experience before registering with the governing body, Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA).
This level of education makes them experts in anatomy, biomechanics, human physiology and the management of chronic disease. Unlike a personal trainer, the high level of knowledge and skills of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist means they are an allied health provider and recognised by Medicare and private health insurers.
Why see an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
