Accredited Exercise Physiologists

What are they:


An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) holds a four-year equivalent university degree and specialize in the exercise and movement for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. AEPs provide support for people with
  • obesity
  • cardiovascular disease
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis and arthritis
  • mental health conditions
  • cancer and cancer treatment recovery
  • chronic pain and fatigue
  • post-surgical rehabilitation (ACL reconstruction, hip/knee replacement)
  • neuromuscular conditions (multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease)
  • pulmonary disease and more


How are they different from other exercise professionals?


  • They are university qualified where they complete over 500 hours of practical experience 
  • They undertake strict accreditation requirements
  • They are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and are recognised by most private health insurers
  • They can treat and work with all types of people, those who want to improve their health and wellbeing to those unfortunately suffering from a chronic illness.


How are the different from personal trainers?


Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are university trained and have undertaken extensive training to treat clients with chronic conditions. AEPs do however treat those without any known conditions and help map out long term plans that help you achieve better health and prevent conditions such as diabetes and cancer.
