Physiology and Nutrition

The BASES Division of Physiology and Nutrition encompasses a range of scientific sub-disciplines that relate to how the body responds to exercise and training. 

The interests of members of the Physiology and Nutrition Division cover a broad range of topic areas, including subjects such as physiological preparation, the effect of exercise on clinical populations, the physiology of intermittent team sports, nutritional responses to sport and exercise and the use of supplements.

If you are a BASES member, check out the Physiology and Nutrition Division Hub in the Members' Area, where you can access a range of resources including videos and presentations from the BASES Conference and Division events.

More about Physiology and Nutrition

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

Exercise physiologists are scientists who investigate the responses and adaptations to muscular activity in human subjects or animals and use this knowledge to improve human performance, whether the goal is running a marathon, getting in shape or the prevention and treatment of illness.

Where Do Exercise Physiologists Work?

Exercise physiologists are employed in research centres and academic institutions, hospitals and medical centres, and sports organisations. In addition to research and applied/clinical support work, they will often teach academic courses in exercise physiology, applied human physiology, environmental physiology, exercise biochemistry and nutrition for students of sport and exercise science, physical education, medicine, nursing and other related fields.
