Exercise professionals registered with Fitness Australia provide a variety of exercise services for a range of clientele across many varied settings. Competency to practice is represented through the registration category held and associated continuing education completed.

Fitness Australia has developed a position statement which aims to define the Scope of Practice for AusREP in Australia. It provides clarity about the role and responsibilities that exist for a AusREP in order to enhance the quality and effectiveness of professional services and safeguard the health and interests of people using exercise professional services. Additionally, the document aims to provide clarity for collaborative practice with professionals across broader health and community service delivery systems.

Concurrent with the higher level objectives, it is also acknowledged that adaptation to a changing environment, innovative practice and consumer access to participation should not be unnecessarily impeded by the terms contained within the statement. In this context, the statement is viewed by Fitness Australia as a living document that will be reliant upon ongoing reflection, review and modification to maintain its accuracy and relevance into the future.
