How will Exercise Physiology help me with my Disability?


Depending on your level of disability and the type of disability, one of the clearest and obvious benefits that you will find in an Exercise Physiology program is that we can help you to improve your functional capacity and ability in your activities of daily living. We will work directly with you or your plan manager (we work with all plan managing organizations) to deliver a face-to-face program that is tailored absolutely to your functional capacity, from mild disability to severe and everything in between. Our team have years of experience in helping people with disabilities to live the ablest and most functionally capable lives that they can and we can’t wait to help you!


At Totum Health, we know that one of the aspects of life that people with a disability often suffer from is poor confidence. This extends not only to their physical life but can permeate every part of their life. This may not necessarily be you, but we believe that you will agree that we could all use a little more confidence and the evidence shows us quite clearly that NDIS participants in Exercise Physiology gain an enormous increase in confidence and feelings of self-worth. This is likely to extend to every part of your life, to your work, your interactions with others and ability to take on tasks that you otherwise might not have attempted previously.


This is a logical extension of an increase in confidence and we can be quite certain that once you feel the benefits of an improvement in your functional capacity and confidence that an increase in happiness will follow. The benefits that a regular exercise program, overseen by an Exercise Physiologist, can provide extend well into the realms of mental health and at Totum Health we know that one of the main co-morbidities associated with physical disability is poor mental health, depression and anxiety. We work closely with you to monitor your mental health and happiness scales, making sure that areas of mental health improvement form one of the major measureable elements of our time together.

Social Interaction

Oftentimes, in our experience in helping NDIS participants, we have found that their capacity for social interaction is severely limited. This may not apply to you, but if it does, one of the tremendous benefits that engagement with an Exercise Physiologist will provide is an opportunity for you to not only get outside of your residence, but engage in social activities with the entire team at Totum Health. Through your weekly sessions with our Exercise Physiologist you will get to meet members of our team, but also the other members of the facilities that we use as well as staff. It can be a great way to meet new people and enjoy the benefits that increase socialization can bring.


We leave fitness to last, not because it isn’t important, but because most people that engage an Exercise Physiologist and start to exercise more frequently are well aware that they will improve their fitness. Whether you’d like to improve your aerobic fitness, strength or endurance we will tailor the program to your needs and goals. If weight loss is one of your goals, we will obviously help you with that as well by using our client-centred approach to assist you in making better choices with your food so that you can lose the weight that you would like to. Whatever fitness means to you, we are here to help!

Totum Health

Our aim is to be the number 1 provider of Exercise Physiology and Personal Training in Australia. This is not a small task – there are a lot of providers across our industry. However, we are attempting something different. There is no Exercise Physiology company that is attempting to establish themselves within a commercial gym. This means that we are able to provide our clients with unrestricted access to the most up-to-date and widest array of equipment and space that any other provider can offer.
