What Is An Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

We are allied health professionals who specialise in exercise interventions for people with a wide spectrum of health problems. Those individuals may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries. The aim of exercise interventions are to prevent, manage, acute, sub-acute, chronic disease and injury, and to help assist in restoring one’s ideal physical function, health or wellness. 

 

At WA Health Group we design and deliver safe and effective exercise interventions with education, guidance and support for health and physical activity, and alteration of lifestyle with a focus on achieving behavioural change so you can be the very best version of yourself. 

Why Aren't We Moving?

There's a lot of reasons people avoid exercise, with "no time" consistently being the most common excuse. Factors like injury, poor health and a lack of knowledge also play a big role. Sometimes, you just need a little help, and that's were our exercise physiologist can help.

Staying active throughout life not only improves your general health and well-being, it also helps to fight chronic diseases later in life. Exercise reduces your risk of developing conditions like diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer. We prescribe exercise that's safe and individualised to your specific needs. It doesn't matter how unfit you are, how limited your movement is or what your goals are, we can help put you on the right track.
