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.



Show your support for ESSA’s  2019 Federal Election policy priorities to ensure all Australians are provided with improved access to exercise to enrich their health:


1. Provide better access to exercise physiology by removing GST from exercise physiology.

2. Provide better access to exercise physiology for people with chronic disease through Medicare.

3. Provide better access to exercise physiology for people with disabilities through the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

4. Provide better access to exercise physiology and exercise science for at risk populations by developing a national physical activity strategy.
