What are Accredited Exercise Physiologists?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are specialists in exercise interventions and delivery for people with chronic conditions, apparently healthy populations (low risk) and strength and conditioning for athletes. We also do Workcover claims and injury management to improve success of return to work and sports.

Our job is to help promote healthy lifestyles to prevent, reduce and manage disease within our populations. This will improve the quality of life for all people. 

Much research has demonstrated that the use of exercise interventions can help prevent, treat and improve the quality of life of those living with:
