Exercise physiologist rehab in Cairns  (AEP) is a university qualified allied health professional who specialises in clinical evidence-based exercise interventions for the prevention, treatment and management of chronic disease and injury. They provide education, advice, support and specialised exercise programs with a strong emphasis on behavioural change and the ability to empower participants.

AEPs are not to be confused with personal trainers, despite often working in conjunction with physiotherapists. Unlike personal trainers, AEPs have extensive knowledge in assessing, diagnosing and treating injuries and illnesses related to human movement and are specifically trained in the prescription of safe exercise for individuals with complex healthcare needs.
