Why would you choose an Exercise Physiologist instead of a Personal Trainer?
While some Ex Phys' can also be Personal Trainers... but they're job as an Ex Phys isn't simply to get you fit... or help you lose weight.
Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are 4-year university qualified allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.
AEPs also provide physical activity and behaviour change support for clients with conditions such as; cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, cancer, arthritis, COPD and many more.
So, your Exercise Physiologist is looking at overall physical health with treatments and activities tailored to suit your personal needs, sometimes working with our Podiatrists, Nutritionist and Physios toward a total outcome.
Exercise physiologists are understand the effect that exercise has on the musculoskeletal system, the cardiovascular and the endocrine (gland and hormone) systems.
They can prescribe a course of exercises for either fitness or rehabilitation, as well as advise on behavioral modification programs and encourage development of healthy habits to help manage medical condition.
Exercise Physiology services are claimable on private health insurance as well as Medicare, DVA, TAC and Workcover.
What can I expect from my Exercise Physiology session?
Initially the Exercise Physiologist will ask about your medical history, including chronic injuries or conditions you may have.
They will also ask you about your current exercise routine and any goals you may have - these may be related to a specific injury or just a lifestyle related goals.
They will then conduct a basic movement screen, looking at how your body is moving. This allows them to prescribe exercises that will benefit you specifically.
What’s the difference between an AEP and Personal Trainer?
An individual can become a Personal Trainer in a matter of days and up to several months, depending on the course they choose, while an Exercise Phys will need to study for 4 years at University including more than 500 hours of supervised placement in a work environment.
Exercise Physiologists specialise in graded exercise therapy and lifestyle interventions for people at risk of developing, or with, existing chronic conditions and complex medical conditions and injuries.... while Personal Trainers tend to specialise in delivery of fitness programs for apparently healthy populations.
Re-training your body to work more effectively. That’s what our exercise classes are about.
Revive has introduced a supervised exercise programme designed specifically to assist people with recovering from injury; returning to full activity and maintaining active function.
Classes are highly specialised offering participants a graded active rehabilitation exercise system, with individualised programs to suit all ages and levels of fitness delivered by highly trained and skilled professionals.
The focus is on rebuilding strength and core stability, improving posture and patterns of movement.
Return to your favourite activities, work and sport and move with confidence and control.
Participants undergo a comprehensive assessment of their injury including their strength, movement patterns and posture and by one of our highly skilled physiotherapists.
Once the cause of your injury or discomfort has been established, a highly individualised exercise rehabilitation programme is developed. You will then be taken through your programme by our Exercise Physiologist John Kingston.
For most injuries, it suggested that you attend twice weekly for eight weeks, or as suggested by your physiotherapist.

Hydrotherapy is the use of exercise in a warm pool to promote muscle and joint relaxation that assists in the treatment of conditions like arthritis and chronic back pain.
If your doctor is recommending exercise, ask them if Hydrotherapy will help.
Hydrotherapy is extremely effective in aiding pain relief and rehabilitation, drawing on the warmth, buoyancy and gentle resistance provided by the water.
The warm water gives the body a buoyant, weightless effect that makes exercise much less strenuous on the body, and all the more relaxing.
Our hydrotherapy sessions are conducted under physiotherapist supervision in a purpose-built hydrotherapy pool heated to 34 degrees Celsius.
As a low-impact exercise program, it is suitable for people of all ages and is particularly beneficial to people in their later years.
Hydrotherapy can be an important part of a patient’s treatment plan as devised by their physiotherapist. It is more common that a patient is told by their physiotherapist or similar practitioner that they would benefit from hydrotherapy, and that they should book a class, than a patient making that decision themselves.
We tailor your hydrotherapy program to your needs, which can include:
* Post-operative orthopaedic conditions
* Skeletal and soft tissue injury
* Acute and chronic back pain
* Ante and post natal care
* Sport and work-related injuries.
Benefits & Treatments
Decreased weight as a result of bouyancy
Relaxation of muscles and joints in the warm water
Suitable for patients after most joint replacement surgeries (i.e. hip and knee)
Will you benefit from Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy can be quite beneficial to those that require less strenuous exercises. The elderly fit into this category quite easily, but can also be useful for the younger generations as well.
Hydrotherapy is also a good way of complementing existing physiotherapy or treatments set out by your physiotherapist.
If you’re unsure is you would benefit from Hydrotherapy or not, give us call and ask the question.
How to book a class
Before thinking about booking a class, see one of our physiotherapists and get properly assessed. It is possible that hydrotherapy may not be the best course of action for your condition. C

Clinical Pilates is a method of treating injury through exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing.
Clinical Pilates (as distinct to more generalised Pilates classes) identifies key areas of weakness and poor patterns of movement and treats this by applying carefully selected exercises to target these problem areas.
Who is it for?
Well, the people who will see the most gains are those with chronic issues - back and neck pain , weakness in a particular movement, but almost all people will benefit from some kind of Pilates. After all, none of us are perfect. It’s just a matter of finding out what’s not quite right, then determining what needs to be done to get to where you want to be.
There’s not much point in doing anything really unless you know what you’re trying to achieve… and why.
Take a more generalised Pilates class for example that are common in gyms… you will likely improve but you’ll get far more benefit, if you know where your weaknesses are and what exercises you need to do to overcome them.
That’s basically the difference between garden-variety Pilates and Clinical Pilates. And that’s why you’d choose a clinic with Physiotherapists and Podiatrists working together to work out what the problem is, as well as choosing who and how to solve it. We are the only one clinic that can offer you this.
Clinical Pilates starts with diagnosing movement fault, because, let’s face it, it doesn’t matter how you get there if you don’t know where you’re going.
We find out where we need to go first, then we map a route.
Amy does your assessment during a one-on-one consult and provides any treatment that may be required.
Initial Consult/treatment is $78;
One-on-one Pilates sessions are $66
As you improve and a routine is established, you’ll move into a group class with up to four people requiring the same kind of progam.
Group Classes are $22 per 1 hour session.
We’d be very happy for you to compare our prices with other clinics. No one offers the same level of service at the same price. Savings are generally between $40 and $100 on comparable, full assessments and consult, and classes will save you around $10 on group classes of up to four people.
No One has better equipment in Tasmania… and no one has newer facilities.
If you want the perfect Bike Fit you’ll need a physio that knows bikes… and bike riders. That’s who John Kingston is.
He’s going to hate us for this, but he’s not the most powerful cyclist on a bike, but he can stay with some of the fastest because he doesn’t waste a watt.
He’s spent some time and some cash making sure that he’s as efficient as he can be when he sits on a bike. He’s EXACTLY the type of cyclist/Physio you need to see if you want to get the best out of your body.
It’s not just about biomechanics. There are other considerations. Every cyclist is different. They have different strengths and weaknesses and they have different goals.
If your physio doesn’t understand those goals and the nuances of cycling, they could well be getting in the way of you producing your best.
They might improve your performance, probably will improve your performance, but you don’t want better performance, what you want is the best performance you’re capable of.
This is what we do.
We find out what kind of cyclist you want to be.
We video you front on and side on from both sides to see exactly where your bits are going and what needs correcting.
We look at wattage output through all angles of your pedal stroke.
We change things and do it all again.
And we do it again… and maybe again, until the numbers stack up and you’re sitting comfortably on your bike with all your bits going where they should, at the angles they should be going there, with maximum power through a complete pedal stroke from both legs.
We’re going to ask you for a lot of money…. about as much as a Zipp carbon stem and bars … mind you, we guarantee that it will make a bigger difference to how fast you go than some carbon bars.
The cost is $350 (claimable on private health funds) for a two hour bike fit. BUT, we’ll take that $350 off the price of orthotics if you need them… or want them… and about 80% of cyclists WILL benefit from orthotics that put their feet exactly where they need to be to transfer every watt you generate with your legs and butt.
