FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is the difference between an Accredited exercise physiologist (AEP) and a personal trainer?
AEPs are university trained health professionals that specialise in delivery of exercise and lifestyle modification strategies for people living with chronic or complex medical conditions or injury.
This extensive training is what differentiates an AEP, particularly in regards to the management and safe delivery of an exercise program for a variety of medical conditions and injuries.
2. Can I receive a rebate for my exercise physiology sessions?
Yes you can! Our team members are registered providers with Medicare and therefore recognised by most health funds. Check out our services page that gives further details on rebate options that are available.
3. What can I expect in my first session?
An initial consultation is always the beginning of your exercise physiology service. During this we will discuss your medical history, exercise history and goals that you wish to achieve with an exercise program. Once we have this information we will perform relevant measures and exercise testing that will help us develop your personalised plan. We aim to keep you informed every step of the way and will provide you with recommendations on the plan going forward.
