What we do
Our Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) Erin Barrett will find out your health goals and develop exercise programs to help you get there. Your initial health screening will assess your movement capacity and you will be given practical advice on how to maintain and improve your fitness. Individual exercise programs range from those living with chronic conditions and illnesses right up to elite athletes wanting to increase performance.
Leaders in exercise
Unlike other exercise practitioners such as personal trainers, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is university qualified (4 years) and undertakes strict accreditation requirements. Our AEP is registered with Medicare, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, WorkCover and is recognised by most private health insurers.
How we help
Erin Barrett has a wealth of experience in helping those with chronic medical conditions and injuries and uses the latest evidence-based research to develop tailored exercise programs for her clients. She can help those with neurological, musculoskeletal, metabolic, cardiovascular or respiratory conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, lower back pain, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and many more, and can also help those in good health looking to take their fitness to the next level.
What to expect on your first visit
During your initial one hour consultation, our exercise physiologist will ask a few questions to get an idea of where you’re currently at with your health and to find out what things you like and dislike about exercise. A few body measurements may be carried out, depending on your goals, such as waist to hip ratio, weight and blood pressure to help in determining the next steps of your tailored program. From here you will be given suggestions on the types of exercises suitable, and a personalised exercise program or physical activities strategy will be developed.
