I would recommend EMEP to anyone who has difficulty with walking or other physical problems. My Physiologist is Joel who has worked with me improving and strengthening my muscles to help me with my walking and everyday life. I was classified as a paraplegic 3 years ago due to scar tissue pressing on my leg nerves. With physio, and rehab I learnt to stand and step. Joel has strengthened me and I can walk with a walking stick and small distances without an aid. I may have around 50 persent feeling from waist down. Joel is a easy going person and has a bit of a laugh with me when I find things a bit difficult when I am learning new exercises, and he always encourages me to push on. Thanking everyone for letting me tell my story and how EMEP has and still is helping me become stronger and a more able bodied person. Love Jill Brain. I am 76 years old. If you need help do not hesitate in contacting EMEP. 😃😃

I had a back injury that came back once or twice a year for over 10 years and my approach to dealing with it has always been reactive. Sam helped me take a proactive approach and taught me exercises and gave me a program to get to a point where I could confidently do weight training again. I feel quite comfortable doing deadlifts and squats for the first time in many years. Very happy with everything that has led to this point and for Sam's expertise and support.

Both the young men who’ve come to help me at home with my mobility ,are delightful. Always pleasant & willing to help. Sam & I have some great discussions while he’s here..maybe to distract me from what I’m doing and Joel who looks way too young but is fully qualified is also very kind & helpful. He speaks so well & is very patient & articulate with demonstrations for my exercises..They both display a level of knowledge & understanding of my physical difficulties that they have yet to feel themselves & show consistent professionalism & compassion as I struggle to keep up with their expectations, with just enough of a little push to improve.I can’t recommend this service highly enough.

Joel is excellent to work with, very knowledgeable and professional as well as making you feel relaxed and positive.He provided me with a program that caters to my needs and took the time to explain clearly and demonstrate how to do the exercises. I really like how he changes things up so things don't get mundane. Thanks Joel, you do a fantastic job of caring and guiding me through our weekly sessions.

I would highly recommend Sam to anyone. I first met Sam at Insports at Browns Plains, he set up a programme for me and changed me from a 61 yr old lady who was scared to go to the gym to be a confident gym user. Sam is knowledgeable and very patient, he really listens and tailors my exercises to suit me.

I’ve found Sam through one of my clients. Sam is absolutely amazing, he listens to you, ensures you use the right form, always pushes you to do better than the last session. Sam is really a one of a kind Exercise Physiologist- he will make sure you reach your goals and will always encourage you to try something new or hit new PB’s. Since going to Sam, both my client and I have found new confidence and are proud of ourselves for reaching goals we never even thought we could get.No matter how you feel when you walk into a session with Sam. You will ALWAYS leave feeling happy and proud of yourself.I 100% recommend Sam to be your EP anyway.Thanks for the new found confidence Sam😊

Sam has been a great help in helping my strength and conditioning for my ACL rehab. He pushes me past what I think is possible and shows me what I’m capable of! Sam always takes the time to explain things as much as I need to ensure I understand the benefits in what we’re doing so I get the most out of it. I always leave our sessions feeling powerful and confident in myself & abilities, can’t recommend enough!! ☺️

I highly recommend Sam and the service he provides as an exercise physiologist. Especially people who may have low range of mobility or pain due to an injury.Initially, I searched for an exercise physiologist due to a back injury as I was wanting to rehabilitate my injury and get back to the things I love doing quicker. I came across Enhanced Movement on google and gave Sam a call, I didn’t really have any expectations or understand fully how exercise physiology would help, but after Sam took the time on the phone to get to know me, my injury and explain how he could help, I knew this is exactly what I was looking for.Sam is a very gentle and kind person, who really cares about helping you achieve your goals and become pain free. Sam has provided me conservative movements, that are easy for me to complete with my injury and the range of motion can be adjusted, depending on how I am feeling.I have left my session with Sam feeling really good. Having such a bad back injury at a young age, Sam has provided me with so much reassurance and discussed with me evidence based research about the injury which really settled my anxiety and feelings that I would never fully recover.Thank you Sam at Enhanced Movement, if I could give 10 stars, I would!

I share mutual clients with Sam and have only heard brilliant things about his service. Sam takes a strengths-based, outcomes-oriented approach with every participant and truly cares. Having seen him in action I can vouch that Sam has a warm natured and friendly presence, which is a welcomed trait in the lives of our participants who are often dealing with chronic pain on a day to day basis.

What is an exercise physiologist, and why should I consult one?

An exercise physiologist in Brisbane is a highly trained healthcare professional specialising in the study of how the human body responds and adapts to physical activity. If you’re seeking to optimise your fitness journey, manage a medical condition or enhance your overall well-being, consulting an exercise physiologist can offer you expert guidance. They possess a deep understanding of the physiological effects of exercise and can tailor exercise programs to your specific needs.

How can an exercise physiologist help me manage a medical condition?

Exercise physiologists in Brisbane play a crucial role in assisting individuals with medical conditions through evidence-based exercise programs. By assessing your medical history, current health status & physical capabilities, they can create a tailored exercise regimen that complements your treatment plan. Whether you’re dealing with cardiovascular issues, diabetes, or musculoskeletal disorders, an exercise physiologist can help improve your condition and overall well-being.

What can I expect during my initial consultation with an exercise physiologist?

During your first visit to an exercise physiologist in Brisbane, you can anticipate a thorough assessment of your health history, fitness level & personal goals. This assessment may involve physical measurements, movement evaluations & discussions about your lifestyle. With this information, the exercise physiologist will craft a customised exercise plan that aligns with your objectives, ensuring a safe and effective fitness journey.

Are exercise physiologists only for individuals with medical conditions?

No, exercise physiologists in Brisbane are not exclusively for individuals with medical conditions. While they excel at creating exercise programs for medical management, they are also invaluable resources for anyone looking to improve their fitness levels, enhance athletic performance or adopt a healthier lifestyle. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned athlete, an exercise physiologist can provide expert guidance to help you reach your goals.

How can an exercise physiologist assist in enhancing athletic performance?

Athletes aiming for peak performance can benefit significantly from the expertise of exercise physiologists. These professionals understand the physiological demands of different sports and can design training regimens that target specific performance goals. Through systematic assessment, personalised training plans & performance tracking, exercise physiologists can help athletes gain a competitive edge and achieve optimal athletic success.

What is the difference between a physiotherapist and an exercise physiologist?

While both physiotherapists and exercise physiologists play essential roles in healthcare, their focus and expertise differ. Physiotherapists primarily concentrate on diagnosing and treating a wide range of physical injuries, impairments & disabilities. Physiotherapy often use hands-on techniques, therapeutic exercises & modalities like ultrasound or heat to restore function and alleviate pain. On the other hand, exercise physiologists specialise in creating exercise programs that improve overall fitness, manage medical conditions, and enhance athletic performance. They use their knowledge of human physiology and exercise science to design personalised workout routines tailored to individual needs.

What conditions can an exercise physiologist help with?

Exercise physiologists in Brisbane are equipped to address a wide array of conditions through targeted exercise interventions. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Cardiovascular conditions: Exercise programs designed by physiologists can improve heart health, manage hypertension, and support post-cardiac event recovery.
  • Metabolic disorders: Exercise Physiologists can assist individuals with diabetes in managing blood sugar levels and enhancing insulin sensitivity through tailored exercise regimens.
  • Musculoskeletal issues: From back pain to arthritis, exercise can strengthen muscles, improve joint function, and alleviate discomfort.
  • Respiratory challenges: Exercise Physiologists can design breathing exercises and workouts that enhance lung capacity and respiratory efficiency.
  • Mental health concerns: Exercise has proven benefits for mental well-being, and exercise physiologists can create routines that aid in stress reduction and mood enhancement.
How can an exercise physiologist assist in weight management and body composition goals?

Exercise physiologists are skilled in designing exercise plans that contribute to weight management and body composition improvements. Through a combination of cardiovascular exercises, strength training & nutritional guidance, they can help individuals achieve their desired weight and body fat levels. By tailoring workouts to increase metabolic rate and preserve lean muscle mass, exercise physiologists can provide effective strategies for sustainable weight loss or muscle gain.

What qualifications and credentials should I look for when choosing an exercise physiologist in Brisbane?

When selecting an exercise physiologist in Brisbane, it’s important to consider their qualifications and credentials to ensure you receive reliable guidance. Look for professionals who hold a degree in Exercise Physiology or a related field from a reputable institution. Certification from relevant organisations, such as Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA), further indicates their expertise. Additionally, consider their experience working with individuals who have similar goals or conditions to yours. All our exercise physiologists are ESSA accredited and highly experienced.
