At Coordinated Fitness, we are run by a super team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs). But what IS an AEP anyway? 🤔
An AEP is a university-qualified allied health professional, who prescribes exercise for the prevention and management of medical conditions, injuries, and disabilities. We design, deliver, and evaluate exercise interventions to ensure they are safe, effective, and appropriate to a wide range of pathologies and conditions.
AEPs have a diverse and adaptive skillset, which enables us to work in many settings. This includes private and public hospitals 🏥 community clinics, aged care 👵🏼👴🏾 workplace rehabilitation, fitness centres 🏋🏾 corporate health 🏢 and many others! We often work alongside other health professionals to ensure people with complex conditions receive optimal, multidisciplinary care.
If you want to know how an AEP can help you improve your health and wellbeing today, give us a call or talk to us in our clinic! We would LOVE to hear from you 😊
