In September 2005, I was invited to write an editorial regarding the inclusion of AAESS Accredited Exercise Physiologists in the Medicare Plus Scheme.1 Around this idea, I chose to raise a few issues regarding the blurring of the distinction between physical activity promotion and exercise prescription. I also argued the need for trained exercise professionals (including exercise physiologists) to deliver prescribed exercise to certain populations. I believe that this is an important debate and I thank Prof. Brown for her response.2 I would, however, like to clarify my position on a few points.
