What do they do?

CEP's specialize in health screening and counseling, clinical assessment of fitness, individualized exercise prescription, and are stringent on monitoring of clients for safety

How are we different from a physio?

CEP's specialize in exercise assessment and exercise prescription so they are suited in a gym environment and they do not often see patients with acute conditions.  CEP's do not diagnose medical conditions and do not provide hands-on manipulation or therapies.   Often a patient will see a physio until they are ready for exercise, and then the patient is referred to a CEP to work on gaining fitness and strength back.   

 

The CEP industry is new in NZ but is an emerging and essential industry, using exercise to enhance the rehabilitation of disease, injury, and illness. CEPNZ helps govern the quality of CEPs within NZ,  those registered will have RCEP-CEPNZ alongside their name.  Another governing body is the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) those registered with ACSM hold a minimum of a Masters degree and a minimum of 600 hours' experience, they will have RCEP-ACSM alongside their name.
