Our team of accredited exercise physiologists will help you use exercise as a medicine to achieve your health and fitness goals.
They understand how different exercises will affect your body, under different conditions:
- Illness & Chronic Conditions
Whether your goal is rehabilitation after an injury or illness, or you want to manage the long-term impact of a chronic health condition, our exercise physiologists know which exercises will be most beneficial for you.
In addition to prescribing exercises, they will also help you identify changes that you can make in your daily life that will help improve or manage your condition.
Exercise Programs Tailored to Your Needs
Our exercise physiologists will create an individualized exercise program for you, that takes into account your needs and the limitations imposed by your current health condition. They will work with you to adjust the program based on your feedback and your progress, so that you get the most benefit in the shortest time.
Exercise physiologists don’t just prescribe traditional exercises that focus on:
- Building muscular strength
- Improving cardiovascular fitness
They utilize a wide range of treatments, including:
- Improving posture
- Improving balance and co-ordination
- Breathing and relaxation techniques
- Education to reduce risks of falling or injury.
They have in-depth knowledge of how different exercises and activities will affect your muscular, cardiovascular and neurohormonal systems, and how those effects will change the way that you move and function.
They will take into account your unique situation—your health, your lifestyle, what you do and don’t like to do—and they will create a program that you can integrate into your lifestyle and maintain over the long-term.
