EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST – I will get you the body you want.

Hi, Waseem Khan ((M.EX.PHYS.) here, I’m an Exercise Physiologist and can get you the body you want, for a fraction of the price you’d pay a personal trainer.

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

Generally speaking, exercise physiologists assess our patients’ fitness so that they can improve and/or maintain their good health through exercise.

While my chosen field is similar to a personal trainer, there are two major differences. First is that I possess the accreditation of an exercise physiologist after four years of study in a university. I then went ahead and completed my Masters. Personal trainers only need two months to one year to get their certification.

The second difference is that while personal trainers can only assist individuals who are healthy, as an accredited exercise physiologist, I can also attend to the needs of my clients who have health problems, such as heart disease, musculoskeletal disorders, cancer, metabolic diseases, and chronic disorders like diabetes or lung disease.

As a health professional, I can design fitness plans that can meet your health goals and needs.

Why Work With An Exercise Physiologist

Guided Workout Program

It’s never fun to figure things out on your own. My clients don’t need to work out in expensive gyms. I can work with you right from the comfort of your home, completely online. I can design a customised diet and workout program that is most suitable in addressing any health problems that you have at present and at a schedule that meets your busy lifestyle, so that you can achieve the body you desire.

Answer your questions about health and fitness

Many of my clients suffer from information overload. In their desire to get fit, they tend to research heavily on the Internet but don’t really understand the information that they are reading. These misunderstandings can lead to serious consequences for your health. I am in the position to answer any questions you may have about health and fitness, so that you don’t end up endangering your health from fad diets or skipping important meals.

Accountability

Most people stop an exercise program or diet plan within the first few weeks. They don't have a gameplan and certainly have no accountability. I will keep you accountable to make sure you get real results.

I will get you the body you want. Are you ready?

Why get coaching?

Because going in at it alone sucks.

If you’ve tried before, you’ve probably run into some of the following barriers:

Time: finding the time to go to the gym, walk, run, climb, swim, cycle or whatever. You just can’t do it because you’re too busy.


Exhaustion: You oversleep in the morning or cram in those precious extra fifteen minutes. You come home exhausted from work. Now, you’re exhausted and don’t even want to think about getting off the couch.


Cravings that junk food: We all sabotage ourselves at some point. We make progress only to find ourselves thrown off track with cravings or emotional eating.


Over-complication: Instead of focusing on the big wins, we get lost in the details, over-thinking and over-complicating everything. Finally, we burn out.


Information Overload: Are fats good? Bad? Is there a miracle weight loss cure? Is skipping breakfast saving your life or killing you?


Negative self-talk: Those little voices in our heads that tell us that we aren’t good enough, that we can’t do this, that we don’t have what it takes.


Social pressure: Your significant other, best friend or mother-in-law is not exactly on your team. Then there are navigating parties, eating out, holidays, and more.


Life: you know…..life gets in the way.

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

It is true that exercise physiologists are much more than your personal trainers or gym instructors.

Much like the other allied health services, an exercise physiologist is a health professional. He/she has acquired an extensive tertiary education about the human body as well as in-depth training in the body’s responses to exercise. In fact, unlike a personal trainer, an exercise physiologist needs to study certain medical courses for four to six years to attain a Bachelor’s Degree alone. If they want to go to help treat patients with heart and vascular diseases, they need to study cardiac rehabilitation in order to get a Master’s Degree.

Just what are the courses that exercise physiologists are required to study in a university?

  • Exercise physiology
  • Exercise physiology research
  • Biomechanics
  • Kinesiology
  • Exercise testing and prescription
  • Psychophysiology
  • Sports nutrition
  • Statistics and statistical interpretation
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
  • ECG interpretation

Much like doctors, exercise physiologists need to undergo internship first and then get board certified by taking the exam that is being given by the American Society of Exercise Physiology, the American College of Sports Medicine, or similar accrediting organizations in their respective countries. They also need to keep up to date with the latest advancements and trends in the field through continuing education courses.

What An Exercise Physiologist Does

An exercise physiologist analyzes the current physical fitness levels of their clients/patients. Especially if a patient is suffering from a chronic illness, like diabetes or heart disease, or had an injury, the exercise physiologist works to increase the patient’s functional capabilities and improve the quality of their lives for the long term through the right exercise and diet program.

They can also assist physically fit clients to meet specific health goals, such as achieving their desired bodies or boosting athletic performance through a customized exercise plan. With this role, it certainly is no wonder that exercise physiologists are often mistaken for personal trainers.

Take note though that personal trainers do not possess the exercise physiologist’s expertise in administering and analyzing stress tests, ECGs, and other medical evaluation tools. While most personal trainers still need to refer their clients to a nutritionist or a dietician, exercise physiologists can already come up with a suitable diet plan based on their patients’ health needs and goals. Overall, an exercise physiologist can devise a fitness plan that builds physical strength and endurance, improves flexibility, and boosts cardiovascular function and metabolism to promote healing and better health.

Exercise Physiologist Jobs

While being an exercise physiologist is a job in itself, you can see them working in other positions and hold other work titles as well. Among the exercise physiologist jobs are the following:

  • Sports medicine and athletic training advisors, especially for the purpose of reducing the frequency of injuries and promoting faster healing in both amateur and professional athletes
  • Assist athletic equipment companies in designing sports gear
  • Athletic performance or sports consultants or directors
  • Clinicians
  • Wellness directors
  • Personal coaches
  • Exercise program managers or coordinators
  • Rehabilitation specialists

Salary for Exercise Physiologist

Because of their expertise and training in this health field, the services of exercise physiologists are highly valued and thus have higher annual salaries. Based on their certification, location, and level of experience, the annual salary range is between $30,700 and $73,000, with the median base pegged at $46,270.

Indeed, exercise physiologists offer greater health services than personal trainers. If you are looking for a rewarding career that not only commands a higher salary but also enables you to assist people with their health issues, it is highly recommended that you become an exercise physiologist.
