UWA Exercise and Performance Centre

Improving health, function and physical performance

The UWA Exercise and Performance Centre (EPC) provides individual and group exercise services to improve health, function and physical performance.

The EPC is linked with the School of Human Sciences clinical training to postgraduate students undertaking Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology.

Exercise services, including individual and group programs, are provided by postgraduate students under the supervision of Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP).

Upon presentation to the EPC, an initial assessment is conducted including client interview and a physical assessment to identify history and goals. Following the assessment, recommendations, education and other services are provided to suit your exercise and lifestyle.

A variety of clinical programs are run each week through EPC, providing a tailored and supportive environment for clients. Specific programs target a range of health goals, cardiometabolic disease, musculoskeletal pain or injury, cancer, healthy aging, and more.

Exercise Physiology Services at EPC

AEPs specialise in clinical exercise interventions for a broad range of pathological populations. These persons may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries.

The aims of AEP interventions are to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health or wellness. These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support for lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioral change.
