Exercise Physiologist vs. Personal Trainer
Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) provides the national accreditation program for EPs. Accredited Exercise Physiologists are recognised as allied health professional. They are eligible to register with Medicare Australia and have recognition among most major health insurers. At a state level, EPs are included within health professional awards and in compensation schemes, such as WorkSafe and TAC.
