What is exercise physiology?
Exercise physiology is the physiology of physical exercise. Exercise physiology is the study of the the body’s acute responses and chronic adaptations to a wide range of physical activity and exercise conditions.

These health care professionals play an important role in servicing the health care needs of those involved in exercise and physical activity.
