What is Exercise Physiology?

Exercise Physiology or Exercise Therapy is a branch of healthcare that focuses on using exercise and physical activity to improve health, prevent chronic disease, and manage existing conditions.

At Rehab Solutions, we partner with Exercise Rehab whose exercise physiologists work closely in conjunction with our physiotherapists, dietitians and occupational therapists

Exercise physiology involves the use of evidence-based exercise prescription and programming to help you achieve your health goals. Our experienced exercise physiologists work with you to develop a personalized exercise program that's tailored to your needs and goals, taking into account any existing medical conditions, injuries, or physical limitations

Exercise physiologists are much more than just a personal trainer at the gym. Exercise physiologists study at university and have a wide range of knowledge about the human body and the benefits that exercise has on it, both mentally and physically.


Exercise Rehab's purpose-built gym in Fairfield is perfect for conducting exercise physiology sessions, however we also provide the convenience of home visits for those who are unable to travel to us.


All of our exercise physiologists are accredited exercise physiologists (AEPs) and are members of Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA).

Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how exercise physiology can help you improve your physical function, manage chronic conditions, and achieve better overall health.
