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.

Basic Assessment

Our Basic assessment includes key physical checks to make positive and sustainable lifestyle changes. Included in this assessment package is the essential cardiovascular fitness test, one of the strongest predictors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. You will receive a summary of results, including a 5-year CVD risk profile, education, goal setting and behavioural change strategies. We will assist you by helping to identify and work around barriers to exercise.

Energy Utilisation (Metabolic Efficiency) Test

This test assesses how efficient your body is at using fat or carbohydrate stores while exercising at different intensities. The assessment will look at how much energy you use during cycling 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).
