Human Performance Laboratory



The Human Performance Lab has resumed scheduling for body composition testing only. We do not anticipate any respiratory testing to resume this term.

If you would like to schedule an appointment for body composition testing or get on the email list for notifications please email Kelly Whitney-Babcock, Aaron Seipel or Jay Penry.


The Human Performance Lab research interests include exercise energy metabolism, athletic performance, and body composition. The Lab provides tests of aerobic fitness (maximal oxygen consumption) and body composition (percent body fat) for a reasonable fee.
