Do you have a medical condition, disability, injury or weakness that’s holding you back?

The science speaks for itself. Regular exercise is a vital component of a healthy lifestyle and proven to sustain long-term physical and mental health. Even a moderate amount of physical activity can significantly reduce the chances of lifestyle diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis or type 2 diabetes, among others. 

But for some, achieving the right movement and momentum to have this impact is half the battle.

Limited mobility can be as much of an emotional obstacle as a physical one in gaining the confidence to exercise, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is a university qualified allied health professional trained to assist with these obstacles.

AEPs design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for a variety of needs, including acute or sub-acute chronic medical conditions to disabilities and injuries.

At APEX, exercise physiology supports clients on all levels; from those just wanting to improve their health and fitness, to clients managing a chronic disease or transitioning out of physiotherapy in the end stages of rehabilitation.
