What is an Exercise Physiologist?
An Accredited Exercise Physiologist is a leading exercise professional specialising in rehabilitation, medical health management, and improving your health and wellbeing!
We are tertiary-qualified exercise professionals who specialise in exercise rehabilitation, the treatment of medical conditions through exercise, and the health management of individuals who are seeking expert supervision and support for their fitness.
As Exercise Physiologists, we have undertaken post-graduate studies in exercise science and rehabilitation, which provides stringent training and knowledge in the causes of musculoskeletal injuries, the biomechanics of rehabilitation, the mechanisms of chronic diseases, the interactions of medications and their impact during exercise. This academic knowledge guides our application of exercise programs to address injuries and medical conditions and to return your body to optimal health and function.
Accreditation as an Exercise Physiologists is stringently regulated by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). ESSA is the national governing body of Exercise Physiologists in Australia. The national executive of ESSA consists of academic heads, whose objectives are to raise the standards of professional care and the knowledge of exercise professionals working throughout the Australian community.
Our team of Exercise Physiologists at Inspire Fitness are registered with Medicare, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, and many private health insurers. In order to maintain accreditation, our Exercise Physiologists must undertake a minimum level of professional development annually.

At Inspire Fitness, you have access to Melbourne’s only fully-equipped Exercise Physiology Gymnasium when you work with our Exercise Physiologists. Our facility is tailor-made to increase your opportunities to get the health and rehabilitation results you want. Our exercise facility is specifically-designed as an exercise physiology gym, which allows us to design programs for those who require more specialised care and expertise. We don’t operate in the stuffy back corner of a physiotherapy practice where exercise equipment is limited, or in a multi-purpose scout hall with second-rate equipment. Inspire Fitness is specifically designed to allow our Exercise Physiologists to work at their highest professional capacity, so you get the results you need.
