The Human Performance Lab serves two functions. It provides opportunities for students to gain experience administering physiological performance-related and health-related fitness assessments. Furthermore, all students, employees and community members are welcome to set up an appointment to undergo the fitness assessments. Assessments can help emphasize the importance of having an active lifestyle to achieve and maintain high levels of cardiorespiratory function, ideal amounts of body fat, sufficient muscular strength and endurance and flexibility especially in the lower trunk and posterior thigh areas for a healthy back. It is a way to assess your present fitness level in a particular area and can be done on a pre-post basis to evaluate the effectiveness of a physical activity program. Fitness testing can be a means of motivating you to set short- and long-term goals; a motivator for improvement and a reinforcer for fitness maintenance! The Health-Related Fitness Assessment includes evaluation of cardiorespiratory fitness (treadmill testing or step test), muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition (underwater weighing or skinfolds), with recommendations for the development and maintenance of each.
