Exercise Physiology

Exercise Physiology is the study of the human body’s response to exercise and physical activity.

It particularly focuses on the role of exercise in the management of long term health conditions, where special considerations need to be taken to ensure that exercise will be safe and effective.

An Accredited Exercise Physiologist is a University qualified allied health professional who provides exercise interventions to a wide variety of individuals; ranging from elderly patients to elite athletes.

Chronic Disease Management

Chronic Disease Management involves the prescription of exercise for clients who present with an ongoing medical condition.

This can be managed or treated with a specified exercise program. Clients who present with an ongoing medical condition may be eligible for Medicare funded exercise sessions under what is called a GP management plan.

Strength and Conditioning

Strength and Conditioning involves the implementation of a wide variety of exercise types to achieve a reduction in body fat and increase in lean muscle mass.

Sport specific programs involve the prescription of specific exercises tailored to the demands of your chosen sport. Our aim is to achieve improvements in muscular strength, endurance and cardiorespiratory fitness.

Injury Rehabilitation

Injury Rehabilitation is the implementation of a graded exercise program following injury, joint replacement or other surgical procedures that aim to regain full function of the affected area.

Programs of this nature begin with the aim of improving range of motion and movement, with the progression to strength and stability based exercises (as pain and discomfort reduces).
