ACCREDITED EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

IN FITZROY NORTH

Subsidised exercise classes for Australians over 65

WHAT ARE AEPs?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are experts of movement and exercise. They are the highest trained movement experts in Australia. 

 

AEP's are Accredited Exercise Scientists as well.

Whilst the benefits of exercise have been known for a long time it has taken the health and university sectors just as long to create a pathway for people that are interested in using exercise as a therapeutic tool.

AEP's to be registered have spent a minimum of 360 hours of practical experience with clients with clinical conditions (eg. cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurological)

FAQs

  1. Do I need another assessment to attend a class? If it has been longer than 2 months since your last visit with an EP, we are required to re-assess you before you can attend a group class.

  2. If I am a private patient or a semi-private patient, can I attend a small group? Absolutely.

  3. Can I attend more than 1 class per week? You can attend as many classes per week as you like!

  4. Do I need to attend the same semi-private or classes each week? You have the flexibility to move between classes week by week, and between practitioners.

  5. Do I need to stay with the same practitioner every week? No, you are free able to move between practitioners week by week.

Cancellation Policies

Our EP's schedules are getting busier and busier, meaning, commonly we have waitlists for patients in need of care. Unfortunately, if you cancel late, it also means our EPs will not be paid for that session, and someone else misses out on their treatment. Therefore our cancellation policy is as follows:

  1. For private and semiprivate sessions, a late cancellation under 24 hours notice will incur a $50 charge.

  2. For small group classes, a late cancellation of under 24 hours will incur a full fee charge. This means if you have a pack, a session will be deducted, and if you are a single, pay-as-you-go user, you will be charged a late cancellation fee of $45.
