Exercise physiology is a specialisation of sports science, a multi-disciplinary field concerned with the understanding and enhancement of human performance.
Sports science includes the knowledge, methods and applications of sub-disciplines of human movement studies (exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control and motor development, exercise and sport psychology) as well as how they interact.
A sports scientist will work with teams and individual athletes to provide scientific support in preparation for competition.
This can involve information, technical and practical support on training, injury prevention, technique analysis, nutrition and optimisation of performance, and assistance with psychological issues (such as motivation, stress and arousal, and coping strategies).
Exercise physiologists are university qualified sports scientists who with further study specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.
Exercise physiologists are trained experts who assist sports people to achieve the best possible sporting performance. They evaluate research, assess and advise on coaching, training, competition and recovery practices in all areas and levels of sport. Exercise physiologists also provide physical activity and behaviour change support for clients with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, depressions, cancer, arthritis, and many more.
