An Exercise Physiologist is an Allied Health Professional who specialises in the benefits of exercise prescription to help patients improve health and wellbeing, get fitter or treat patients with a medical condition through exercise.
Our Enhance Exercise Physiologists are experienced in designing effective exercise programs and helping people develop healthy lifestyle behaviours for the prevention, management and treatment of a multitude of health conditions and injuries as well as improving your overall health.
Is a Personal Trainer and an Exercise Physiologist the same?
Simple answer, no. An Exercise Physiologist is university trained and has a vast knowledge of the human body and the benefits that exercise has on it, both mentally and physically.
How do they differ from Physiotherapists?
Commonly, there is some confusion distinguishing between a Physiotherapist and an Exercise Physiologist. Physiotherapists generally focus on the diagnosis of acute or chronic injuries and treating pain to improve function. Exercise physiologists prescribe evidence-based movements for chronic disease prevention and management of injuries.
