Functional Assessment Lab
Get Hands-On Experience with Functional Assessment Equipment
The Functional Assessment Lab focuses on strength training and conditioning to increase your functional capacity for sports, recreational activities, and daily life.
Here, you’ll learn basic and advanced techniques and coaching strategies; testing, measurement, and evaluation protocols and procedures; and principles of beginning and advanced programming.
With seven complete training areas, you’ll practice assessing clients and designing personalized strength and conditioning programs. Use industry-standard testing methods to assess aspects of fitness including muscular endurance, strength, and power.
Using machine and free weights as testing tools, you’ll train research subjects such as firefighters, members of ROTC, students, and club sports athletes. Other technology, such as tendo units and accelerometers, are available to assess variables including velocity, and force, power production.
Research subjects include firefighters, members of ROTC, students, and club sports athletes.
