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)
AEPs manage conditions including but not limited to:
Diabetics and issues related to the metabolic system
Nerve and/or neurological complaints
If you'd like to know more about AEP's and whether they can help please get in touch with us.

Please note, with demand, these classes may change. We will always advertise our current timetable and any changes on the board in the gym space. Please speak with your practitioners if you have any concerns, requests or feedback. Please see timetable below. For information regarding each specific class, including our AgeWell and Diabetes group, please ask our practitioners or staff at reception.
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.
If I am a private patient, or a semi-private patient, can I attend small group EP? Absolutely.
Can I attend more than 1 class per week? You can attend as many classes per week as you like!
Do I need to do the attend the same semi-private or classes each week? You have the flexibility to move between classes week by week, and between practitioners.
Do I need to stay with the same practitioner every week? No, you are freely able to move between practitioners week by week.
Our EPs 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. Therefor our cancellation policy is as follows:
For private and semiprivate sessions, a late cancellation under 12hours notice will incur and $50 charge.
For small group classes, a late cancellation of under 12hours will incur a full fee charge. This means, if you have a pack, a session will be deducted, and if you a single, pay as you go user, you will be charged a late cancellation fee of $45.
