Regular physical activity and exercise is one of the most simple and powerful medicines we have to prevent and manage a wide range of health risk factors and medical conditions.

At MQ Health, our exercise physiologists are specialists in clinical exercise prescription, providing tailored advice and exercise support after a diagnosis or change in health status such as diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure or cancer.

Together, they will identify a safe and appropriate starting point for your exercise, and tailor exercise progressions that take into account your medical history, medication, functional capacity and health goals. Our supportive team will also help you integrate exercise into your day and establish habits to sustain a regular physical activity routine.
