What is an exercise physiologist?
Exercise physiologists are university-qualified allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise for the prevention and management of injuries and chronic diseases. Our focus of study is specifically on how both the healthy body and injured or unhealthy body responds to exercise and movement. We are scientists at heart, which means we use evidence-based research in delivery of services. All Agility Rehabilitation exercise physiologists are accredited with Exercise & Sport Science Australia (ESSA), our primary industry body.
