Your personalised plan will consist of a combination of the following Exercise Physiology services, epending on your individual needs.

 

Initial consultation:

This is the start point for all patients. The exercise physiologist will undertake a one on one consultation in the privacy of a consultation office to review your medical history and physical limitations, and devise a suitable plan to ensure you achieve your goals. The plan may include regular reviews, regular functional re assessments, in clinic and or home based exercise programs. Each plan will vary and will be individually tailored to personal requirements.

 

Health & fitness assessments:

If practical to do so, an exercise physiologist will undertake base line measures of functional variables. Variables that can be measured include body composition, aerobic fitness, strength, flexibility, joint range of motion, balance, core strength and resting metabolic rate. Regular re-assessments are undertaken as necessary and help to monitor your progress, review program effectiveness and help with motivation.

 

Individual follow up consultations:

Reviews are undertaken as necessary and allow you to follow up with your exercise physiologist to review progress, progress and / or modify the initial plan.

 

Home exercise plan:

Your personalised home program will help you manage your own health and wellbeing, and is important to ensure goals are reached. Your program will be tailored to suit your individual needs and goals and will be practically applied to your daily life.

 

Group exercise classes:

Each AEP clinic offers many exercise sessions at various times throughout the day from Monday to Friday (Woodville Park open Saturday morning). The sessions are a cost effective way for each individual to undertake their own personalised program under the supervision of an exercise physiologist, while at the same time offer a supportive, safe, encouraging and friendly environment to do it in. Timetables of available sessions at each clinic can be found here.
