Exercise physiologist jobs

In general, exercise physiologists investigate the way humans or animals respond and adapt to exercise. They use this knowledge to help improve human performance. This can mean anything from helping someone to run a faster marathon through to advice on getting in shape or the prevention and treatment of illness.

Exercise physiologists can be employed in a wide range of settings, including:

  • Research centres
  • Universities
  • Hospitals and medical centres
  • Sports organizations

Work is typically a combination of research and applied or clinical support work, and teaching. The skills and knowledge of an exercise physiologist will be in demand for students in a variety of fields including not just sport and exercise science, but also physical education, medicine, and even nursing. Teaching thus forms a large part of most practitioners' working life.
