The role of the exercise professional in health care is rapidly changing. The prevention and treatment of chronic diseases are becoming an increasingly important part of the exercise professional’s toolbox. Being able to delineate the role of the exercise professional in community and clinical based settings is vital to understanding where they fit in and how they can contribute.
