Caelum-Individual-ST-MARYS-32Caelum Schild, Accredited Exercise Physiologist

Caelum has been working at AEP Health Group since the beginning of 2010. Over this period of time he has gained a broad range of clinical experience from the Royal Adelaide Hospital, GP clinics and private practice. His friendly and positive nature are strengths when educating patients about exercise and their health.

Caelum manages AEP’s Edwardstown clinic, where he consults and facilitates supervised group sessions for patients with numerous chronic conditions. He is also a Program Director of The Wellness Assistant, a complete online solution that sets new standards in workforce health and wellness.

Clinically, Caelum has worked extensively with patients in the areas of type 2 diabetes, musculoskeletal rehabilitation and cancer rehabilitation. He has a special interest in weight management, cardio-metabolic conditions, dysautonomia and has co developed AEP’s medically based weight loss service.

Caelum has completed additional training in the field of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and is using this to successfully help patients guide their own exercise prescription and identify systemic health trends for optimal outcomes. This is a crucial tool, particularly for patients with dysautonomic conditions.

Qualifications: ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), Bach. App. Science (Human Movement & Health Studies), Current Senior First Aid & CPR.


I have been working with AEP Health Group since graduating from UniSA in 2009. At this time I was also working at the Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre delivering land and water based exercise physiology services. In September 2011, I began full time work with AEP at the St Marys (now Edwardstown) clinic.

I specialise in delivering consultations, education, assessment and exercise prescription to people with cardio-metabolic conditions. These include heart disease, overweight/obesity, abnormal blood lipids, abnormal blood glucose (including type 1 & 2 diabetes), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and many more. I also have a keen interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation, most likely driven from my own personal experiences and injuries. I have also served on the Exercise & Sports Science Australia State Chapter between Jan 2013 and Dec 2016, helping to further the profession within the state.

In my younger days I was fortunate enough to play football at a state league level, however work commitments and my body (specifically, knee and shoulder reconstructions) put a stop to this. I went on to play A-grade football in the Adelaide Hills (where I grew up as a child and continue to live today). These days I enjoy a variety of other activities such as mountain biking, running (road & trail), golf, body-boarding and walking with my wife and dog.

I enjoy educating clients to help achieve their goals through self-management techniques. I believe education is the most powerful tool people can receive to improve their health. If you know why you are doing something, you are more likely to do it and most importantly, benefit from it.
