Ethical Issues

Exercise physiologists have to treat patients of all ethnicities, races, religions, ages, genders, etc. It is their responsibility to treat anyone, regardless if they agree with their beliefs or not (ASEP).

Exercise physiologists are also responsible for protecting the public from misinformation about exercise therapy and exercise testing.

Legal Issues

Exercise physiologists are at risk of practicing malpractice because they use complex equipment in their daily tasks. Exercise physiologists can be held accountable for any accidents and injuries if they do not know how to properly use equipment or do not inform the patient of how to properly use the equipment.
