People with any chronic condition may see an AEP one-on-one for private and individualised exercise testing, prescription counselling and support.

Referrals can be faxed directly to our Melbourne clinic (Fax: 03 8692 6715) or can be submitted via our online referral system.

Exercise Right Week 2016

Exercise Right Week 23 - 29 May 2016 Exercise Right Week (23-29 May), promoted annually by Exercise & Sports Science Australia, is all about inspiring people to live happier and healthier lives by empowering them through exercise. It also celebrates the Accredited Exercise Physiologist and their mission in empowering people to exercise right for who they are and their condition. During Exercise Right Week, why not start talking to your patients and clients about exercise and how its prescription, in many cases, can be more beneficial than the prescription of medication to prevent and treat chronic conditions. Exercise has been shown to have a positive effect on common chronic diseases including blood pressure, cholesterol, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain. It is also the cheapest and most accessible medicine available. ACCREDITED EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGISTS ARE THE EXPERTS WHO CAN HELP YOU EXERCISE RIGHT So why not ensure that we add a dose of exercise right in our prescription for the prevention, treatment and management of these conditions? Book an initial consultation with our Accredited Exercise Physiologist at Moonee Valley Health and Fitness to assist with exercise management for chronic conditions. When it comes to exercise, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. It’s important to exercise right for your uniqueness – right professional, right place, right time.
