AND

  • Improve your;

  • Strength

  • Aerobic Fitness

  • Flexibility

  • Balance

  • Muscle mass

  • Mental Health


Would you take it?


Like any medications, there are some side effects:


You MAY experience some of the following:

  • Muscular soreness

  • Sweating

  • Flushing and redness of the face and skin


If taken or administered incorrectly you may also experience:

  • Light-headedness

  • Dizziness

  • Pain

  • Injury


If I told you there was someone who was an EXPERT in your medication and it was in fact the only type of medication they administered, and ever administered.


If I told you that the person administering this medication was a University Educated Allied Health Professional with knowledge of the human body including all of its physiology. This person’s training also gave them the knowledge and understanding of how this medication interacts with the other medications you take and how to appropriately adjust the dose of this medication to minimise any possible side effects.


Would you take it?


If you answered yes, you should probably see an Exercise Physiologist. As Exercise Physiologists we prescribe exercise in a similar way in which a doctor prescribes medication. Except we only prescribe one type of medication, and we know it back to front.
