Exercise and Sports Science Australia flags importance of expert advice on World Health Day

With the World Health Organization (WHO) today celebrating the 70th anniversary of World Health Day, Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) is reminding Australians of the benefits that exercise can have to their health.

ESSA Chief Executive Anita Hobson-Powell explains “ESSA wants to encourage all Australians to seek the right exercise expert for their health requirements, especially if they are living with a chronic condition, or have any concerns about implementing more physical activity into their lives.”

This year, ESSA is highlighting that no one should have to sacrifice their health due to financial hardship, with Hobson-Powell stating “according to data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, more than 50% of Australians reported having at least one in of eight chronic conditions. Many of these we know can be prevented or managed with exercise.

“It is important however, that if you are living with a chronic condition, you exercise under the guidance of an appropriately qualified professional to ensure you are exercising safely as all conditions come with different considerations.”

An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) holds a four-year equivalent university degree and specialises in exercise and movement for the prevention and management of chronic conditions and injuries.

Hobson-Powell adds “the cost of exercise physiology services varies, however the right accredited exercise professional has the ultimate aim to provide you with the skills to self-manage your health and well-being. A short-term cost can lead to long term savings and ultimately enhance your quality of life.”
