Exercise and Sport Science Laboratory

The Exercise and Sport Science Laboratory houses a variety of equipment dedicated to comprehensive health promotion and sport science research. In addition to the exercise testing equipment, the lab contains telecoaching stations used to monitor individuals as they are active in their homes and communities. The telehealth system will enable those who cannot physically come to the facility to work with a fitness coach to increase physical fitness and function. This diverse and unique laboratory allows for cutting edge research and endless opportunities for collaborations with top researchers in the field.
