What is an Exercise physiologist?

Exercise Physiologists provide fitness programs and preventive care to help patients recover from cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases that will improve their overall health. Most often they work with adults in hospital, private practice, and community-based settings. To become an Exercise Physiologist, one would need at least a bachelor’s degree, with Master’s degree preferred, and related courses pertaining to biology, anatomy, kinesiology, exercise physiology, and nutrition, as well as clinical work.
