Community Testing Program

The Exercise Science program offers Community Testing services conducted by faculty and graduate students in the Robert Kertzer Exercise Physiology Laboratory. Some of the fee-for-assessment evaluations include health screening, blood glucose and lipid analysis, body composition analysis, submaximal and maximal graded aerobic capacity tests, lactate threshold testing, muscle fitness and anaerobic power. A complete list of services and prices are listed below. Student, faculty/staff and group rates are available.
