Personal Trainer vs Physiotherapist vs Exercise Physiologist

A Personal Trainer is a fitness professional who designs and delivers exercise programs for individuals or groups. They typically help the healthy population with a focus on improving their physical fitness, losing weight, or achieving specific health and fitness goals.

A Physiotherapist is a university qualified health professional who specialises in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of physical impairments, disabilities and pain. They often help clients in the acute phase of an injury by using a variety of techniques such as manual therapy, exercise, and education to help improve physical function, reduce pain and manage chronic conditions.

An Exercise Physiologist is a university qualified health professional who specialises in the use of exercise as a therapy for a wide range of medical conditions. They use exercise to help improve physical function, prevent chronic diseases, and manage existing health conditions. They also provide education and counseling on physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices.

In summary, Personal Trainers primarily focus on helping clients achieve fitness goals, Physiotherapists use certain techniques to treat physical impairments and pain, and Exercise Physiologists use exercise as a therapy for disabilities, chronic conditions and injuries.
