What Are AEP's?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists

It's All About Getting YOU Towards How You Want To Be!

Our Aim At Active For Life

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are university qualified allied health professionals with a diverse range of skills to provide effective evidence-based exercise prescription to aid clientele in the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.

An AEP’s aim is to aid quality of life through improving physical function, health or wellness. There is a strong focus on health and physical activity education, advice and support for lifestyle modification with an additional focus on achieving behavioural change.

AEPs often work with other allied health professionals and exercise professionals (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists, personal trainers etc) to achieve the best outcomes possible.

How An AEP Is Different From A Personal Trainer

  • AEPs are university qualified
  • There are strict requirements to maintain mandatory accreditation through Exercise Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
  • AEPs are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, Department of Veterans’ Affairs and WorkCover and are recognised by most private health insurers.
  • AEPs can treat and work with all types of people from apparently healthy individuals wanting to improve their health and well-being, to individuals suffering from a chronic disease, injury or condition wanting to improve their quality of life.

How Is An AEP Is Different
From A Physiotherapist?

AEPs and Physios are both allied health professionals, however an AEPs primary focus is to use exercise interventions to prevent, manage and treat chronic conditions, diseases and injuries. AEPs will utilise their skills to empower clients to assist them in their own health management. AEPs often work together with Physiotherapists in order to manage acute injuries/conditions while continuing to progress the client towards their goals and achieving a better quality of life.
