Over six million Australians aged between 18 and 64 are not sufficiently active, despite wanting to experience the range of benefits that come with being active. Too often the blame for inactivity is levelled at the individual. 


This is unfair.


We are calling on the Australian Government, state and local governments,  our stakeholders and the community to commit to building a nation where everyone is supported to be active.

Australians deserve better support and more access to exercise services and programs to become more physically active.


This Campaign Aims To

Promote Access, Fairness and Quality in the development of health and aged care policies on exercise services provided by accredited exercise physiologists and exercise scientists.



– Propose priority policies in four important areas (aged care, mental health, private health insurance and Medicare Benefits Schedule) that cement physical activity and exercise services as essential in health and aged care.



Seek support from the Australian Government to commit more resources in the next Federal Budget to ensure all Australians can access exercise services provided by accredited exercise physiologists and exercise scientists.



– Seek support from key stakeholders in the health, aged care and sport sectors to facilitate and create opportunities for consumers to better access to services and programs that will increase their physical activity levels.
