Exercise Physiology

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) hold a four-year university degree and are allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. AEPs provide support for clients with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, mental health problems, cancer, arthritis, pulmonary disease and more. AEPs are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and WorkCover and are recognised by most private health insurers.

To maintain the highest level of supervision and expert advice for members, Healthy Connections Exercise clinics are solely staffed by Accredited Exercise Physiologists.   Enquiries and further details to Healthy Connections reception Phone 3624 2185 or email healthyconnections@burniebrae.org.au.

I have suffered from asthma all my life and have always had to take my preventative medications every day. Since attending Healthy Connections for the last three years, I have been asthma and medication free. My doctor is amazed. I do not become breathless anymore and I feel stronger and fitter.
