Many faculty associated with the laboratory have active research programs. Please see the faculty directory or the other labs on the website to find out more about research opportunities within the department.

We offer testing for UT members and the surrounding community. Examples of testing that could be completed are VO2max treadmill or cycle test, lactate threshold, and body composition. Please contact Dr. Crouter if you are interested in finding out more about the testing available and cost.

Information about the graduate programs in exercise physiology, assistantship opportunities, and applications can be found on the Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies Graduate Programs web pages.
