EXERCISE physiology

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

AEPs are university qualified allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and/or behaviour modification programs for the prevention and management of illness and injury or for apparently healthy populations. They are trained to screen, assess and apply clinical reasoning and scientific reasoning to ensure safety and appropriateness of exercise-based interventions; and are expected to advance their practice through continuing education, competency development and professional experience.

Our Accreditation Requirements

To ensure currency of knowledge and experience, AEPs are required to participate in ongoing professional development, and stay abreast of recent research for their areas of practice. Yearly professional development requirements for maintaining accreditation as an exercise physiologist includes:
1. Undertaking a minimum of 20 approved continuing professional development (CPD) points per membership year (1 January – 31 December)
2. Holding a current cardiopulmonary resuscitation certificate
3. Holding a current first aid certificate

We Can Assist in the Treatment of a Chronic Disease

AEPs specialise in clinical exercise interventions for a broad range of pathological populations. These persons may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries. The aims of AEP interventions are to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health or wellness. These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support for lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.
