What is an Exercise Physiologist (EP)?
EPs are allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. EPs provide physical activity and behaviour change support for clients with conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, cancer, arthritis, musculoskeletal pain and many more.
