About

Evidence for Exercise® has been developed to improve access for health professionals to high quality scientific analysis and presentation of exercise advice.

We comprehensively review and distill the best available research across a range of disciplines – to provide clear, simple, evidence-based, printable exercise prescriptions for patients of all musculoskeletal, health and fitness practitioners.

Our program is not a vast, overwhelming collection of thousands of ‘accepted’ (and often poorly researched) exercises from which you are required to ‘pick and pluck’.

Rather, it is a collated selection of the most effective, genuine evidence-based exercises presented as elegantly simple and powerful prescriptions, and supported with comprehensive practitioner notes to ensure best practice for the ‘high level evidence’ clinical requirements of today.

After all, sometimes exercise is the best medicine.

For evidence-based practitioners seeking a simple yet substantial and highly effective exercise program

Guarantee

We offer a complete, 100% money-back guarantee for all new annual Registered Providers!

Don’t waste hundreds on exercise programs that are unreferenced, over-complicated, overwhelming and frequently abandoned.

Health registration boards worldwide require ‘high level evidence’ in advice and treatment

Background

Our research shows…

  1. Health and allied health registration boards worldwide now require ‘high level evidence’ in advice and treatment
  2. Effectiveness, patient satisfaction, safety and professional liability are compromised when exercise advice isn’t up to scratch
  3. Exercise instructions provided by health professionals to patients are frequently unclear, incomplete, un-documented, unreferenced and often unnecessarily complicated
  4. Exercise apps and programs requiring practitioners to ‘pick and pluck’ from thousands of exercises are often fiddly and time-consuming during consultations, overwhelming, under-referenced, expensive and frequently abandoned
  5. Copied and distributed source materials, such as photocopied textbooks, may also be in breach of copyright law
  6. Many health professionals don’t prescribe exercises at all, despite proven and profound health benefits for their patients
  7. Most health professionals don’t have the time to keep up-to-date with the latest exercise research
  8. Patient compliance is highest when instructions are prescribed in printed form

Amazing platform. I paid 4x as much for a much less effective program for my patients.

Chiropractor

Great to have all the common exercises displayed in order of progression with all the evidence for them referenced. Just saved me hours of research. Now I have the information handy to justify why I recommend certain exercises and the benefits of them.

Exercise Physiologist

Great relation to evidence for the exercise and what the patient can expect. Fabulous!

ESSA member

Evidence for Exercise is a well researched, comprehensive approach to rehabilitating common biomechanical dysfunctions. The ease of use and support from up to date research make it an indispensable tool for most practitioners.

Chiropractor

Fantastic explanation of the exercises and why they’re performed. Also love the “what to say to patients”.

Physiotherapist

Better Outcomes

Evidence for ExerciseTM breaks it down in a way your patients can understand, whilst also providing you with a deeper understanding of the science and research behind commonly prescribed exercises. We empower you with knowledge of the science behind what you do.

By going back to basics with printable, clear, concise, beginner and intermediate level exercises, Evidence for Exercise builds patient confidence, education and compliance.

The result is better treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction, improved safety and reduced professional liability.

Our exercise prescriptions also emphasise the connection between the brain and the body, drawing on the expanding research field of neuroplasticity, which looks at the changing nature of our brain and its strong connection to the process of exercise.

We continually strive to make Evidence for ExerciseTM the leading evidence-based exercise program for health professionals.
