That’s fabulous that you’re already working out and we would encourage you to keep doing so. The value in seeing an exercise physiologist is that they are specially trained health professionals, that are qualified to prescribe exercise that is appropriate for those with chronic diseases, musculoskeletal conditions and most importantly weight management.

The exercise physiologist will do baseline fitness and strength testing, which will assist in tracking your progress throughout the program. They will then develop a structured exercise program that suits you and your health needs, making use of whatever you’re already doing for exercise and ensuring it is safe and effective for weight management.

It’s not possible to substitute these sessions out of the program for something else you’re already doing, but rather these sessions would compliment and extend what you might already be doing.
