What is exercise physiology?
Exercise physiology provides exercise interventions for people with a broad range of health issues and anyone at risk of developing, or having an existing, medical condition and injury. Exercise physiology aims to prevent or manage acute, or chronic disease or injury, and restore optimal physical function, health or wellness.
The primary interventions are exercise-based, but also include health and physical activity education, advice and support and lifestyle modification. The focus is on achieving behavioural change and a good quality of life.
Why is exercise important?
Exercise improves every aspect of your health. Regular exercise reduces stress, manages weight gain, prevents illness and improves concentration and memory. Ultimate wellness requires a strong, healthy body and mind!
