Inside Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology is the study of the mechanics of body movements and how physical exertion affects the human body. Exercise physiologists work to maximize athletic performance, prevent illness and support recovery from a variety of health conditions. They commonly work in the areas of physical therapy, athletic training and cardiac rehabilitation.

Graduates of bachelor's and master's degree programs that emphasize clinical exercise physiology are prepared to apply exercise in the treatment of medical conditions. They may work in hospitals, wellness centers and clinical rehabilitation centers. Other exercise physiologists often work in fitness centers and other exercise facilities. Advanced research-based degrees generally lead to careers in universities and medical schools conducting research and teaching, as well as in government and industry.
