Exercise Physiology is a medical science that uses exercise to treat health conditions and enhance a person’s overall health. An Exercise Physiologist is great when you need to get moving more but you might have a health condition holding you back currently. Whether that is arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, muscle imbalances, obesity, PCOS, depression, anxiety, etc. having someone to help guide you who fully understands your body, the medicine your taking and integrating your care and exercise regime with your other health professionals is extremely valuable.
Exercise and starting to move more can help improve any health conditions you face.
Being physically active have been proven to be the most effective long-term way of restoring and protecting both your mental and physical health.

How to start exercising
If you’re keen to incorporate more exercise into your life, there are 3 important things to consider:
1. What kind of exercise is right for me?
2. What type of exercise I will enjoy doing (or dislike the least)?
3. How do I exercise without feeling sore and sorry for days afterwards?
If time is not your friend, you’ll also want to find an exercise routine that you can incorporate into your busy life. Our EP’s can help guide you with all of the above.
How to exercise safely and efficiently
You don’t want to hurt yourself trying to get fit. And you don’t want to waste time doing exercise that isn’t helping you. There’s no one-size-fit-all with exercise. Exercise for diabetes is different to exercise for arthritis, high blood pressure or rehabilitation after illness, surgery or injury. Exercise for weight loss, flexibility, muscle strengthening, and cardiac fitness are different again.
Many people who begin an exercise program make the mistake of trying to do too much too soon. If you haven’t exercised for some time, you need to start low and go slow. If you have an injury or chronic condition, you should seek expert advice on how to exercise safely, and that’s where our Exercise Physiologists can help you.
