WHAT IS EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY?

Exercise physiology is the study of the body’s short-term responses to physical stress and how the body adapts to repeated physical stress over the long term.  Our certified exercise physiologists will analyze your fitness in order to help you make improvements in your health or maintain good health. By providing you with a personalized exercise program that you can do at home, in our clinic or at your local gym, you will be able to better manage chronic health conditions, disabilities, mental health conditions and progress rehabilitation.
