It seems unthinkable that many of us aren’t taking advantage of some of the incredible work being done by our academics and researchers. One of the best things about being an exercise physiologist is being able to see the light bulb moment or moment of wonder when you explain to someone how something works physiologically to either provide a positive or negative health effect. Explaining to someone how resistance training can raise your metabolism for up to 72 hours after you have exercised or that exercise has the potential to restrict tumour growth by enhancing the body’s own defence mechanisms not only awakens someone to knowledge but also gives them a definitive plan and a why to their movement and exercise plan. By utilising knowledge we can maximise outcomes for the betterment of the community’s health. The community or the individual can then determine whether certain programs are right or not beneficial for them so that they can best use their time and resources in living a full and abundant life.
