Exercise Physiologists (EP’s) are university qualified health professionals, specialising in delivering exercise programs tailored for a range of conditions, disabilities and injuries. We have an in-depth knowledge of how the body respond to exercise, and adjust programs to suit different levels of health/fitness. EP’s focus on treating each person on an individual basis, as no two bodies are the same. Following an initial assessment including baseline testing, graded exercise programs are used, with small increases in volume/intensity to to progress the patient. The ‘Sweet Spot’ is what we aim for, so that we are improving health/fitness/illness without causing pain or risk associated with conditions. Exercise Physiologists are equipped with knowledge of the different types of exercise and use combinations of strength, cardiovascular, mobility and balance to help individuals achieve their goals.
We believe in making the years count, and advocate for increasing or maintaining QOL, especially as we get older. Exercise can help prevent falls, maintain independent living, help keep up with the grandchildren while also assisting with other age-related health conditions.
