An exercise physiologist is a clinician who is an expert in using exercise to address injury or illness. For four years, exercise physiologists study how exercise can change, improve or even reverse certain conditions ranging from heart disease or asthma to more common injuries such as a sprained ankle. Exercising with an exercise physiologist is different to a personal trainer in that the exercise physiologist has studied in-depth how a disease can affect the human body and cause potentially serious injury.
Exercise physiology often deals with:
- Chronic pain
- Older adults
- Cardio-respiratory conditions
Our exercise physiologist also keeps up with the latest research in combating obesity and weight loss, and work closely with our dietitian to help with losing weight safely.
