An Exercise Physiologist designs exercise programs for people who are suffering with musculo-skeletal pain, or people who are at risk of or have a chronic condition, whether that be heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, pre-diabetes, overweight, lung conditions, osteopenia, osteoporosis and arthritis. We also see people that may have depression, disabilities and balance issues.
What we do is we will design an exercise program or lifestyle modification that can be performed at the gym, home or around the local area. These activities are targeted to improve the outcome of the condition, as exercise has been proven to be one of the best, accessible and affordable forms of medicine.
When working with the client we will provide constant feedback so that the client is heading in the right direction and we design achievable goals, whether small or large that we progressively work towards.
