Exercise and Sport Science Laboratory

The Exercise and Sport Science Laboratory is a very dynamic environment analyzing the human potential in athletes and other exercisers alike.  The laboratory houses many “elite” athlete studies including, but not limited to the NFL, NHL, UFC, and NCAA.  This environment created is very educational and collaborative between faculty and students alike. 

The Laboratory is a 2,400 sq. ft. state-of-the art, facility dedicated to enhancing the preparation and education of exercise and sports science students.  The laboratory has two primary uses: (1) preparation for clinical assessments (2) faculty and students conducting applied sport science research or community service projects.
