About Human Potential Clinic

Clinical Exercise Physiologists providing advanced exercise assessment and prescription for people living with a wide-range of medical conditions.

The Human Potential Clinic (HPC) bridges the gap between the medical community and fitness industry. This unique Clinic specialises in providing evidence-based, advanced exercise assessment and prescription for people living with a wide range of risk factors and medical conditions including high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The HPC works closely with referring medical practitioners, specialists and other allied-health professionals, to provide comprehensive prevention, treatment, and management of various health conditions. Services are centered on the principles of progressive self-management and long-term changes in health-behaviours, ranging from closely-supervised (one-to-one) to home-based (independent) programmes. Research clearly shows that individualised exercise programmes based on gold-standard laboratory assessments can offer substantially greater health benefits than generic low to moderate intensity exercise programmes, whilst minimising risk.

Gas Analysis Fitness Test or Energy Utilisation Assessment

Our Gas analysis fitness test and energy utilisation assessment options offers more advanced measurements for both healthy and active individuals and those at risk or living with medical conditions. The assessment can be tailored to assess overall cardiovascular fitness or metabolic efficiency while exercising at different intensities.

The fitness test involves breath-by-breath analysis of your performance across a wide range of exercise intensities to give you a clear idea of your overall fitness profile. In contrast, the energy utilisation assessment will look at how much energy you use during cycling, walking or running, and how this changes in response to your diet. Changes to your energy utilisation may also improve factors affecting your performance and health (e.g. GI distress and reduced energy stores).

Gold standard measurement techniques allow us to not only accurately measure your exercise responses, but also prescribe individualised exercise guidelines.
