Human Physiology Lab: Services

HPL Services

The Human Physiology Lab is equipped to provide testing for those who wish to improve athletic performance or monitor their progress toward their fitness and/or weight loss goals. It is not a fitness facility. We offer testing for anyone concerned about his or her health and fitness.

For recreational and competitive athletes, we offer body composition analysis, VO2max (aerobic) testing, lactate profiling, and Wingate anaerobic power testing.

The purpose of fitness testing includes education of participants about their present fitness status relative to healthy standards and age/gender-matched norms, as well as collection of data that is not only helpful in development of exercise programs, but also provides baseline data that allow evaluation of progress toward goals.

Testing is available by appointment only. Student discounts may apply.
