Lab Tour
This tour is designed to expose students from science, sports medicine and sport performance classes to how we test athletes cardiovascular fitness, muscular power and body composition. In this option we would have 4 to 5 students from you class volunteer to complete some of the lab based tests (VO2max, Dunk test, Wingate). While the students are doing the test we would explain what is happening in the body and how we are measuring it.

Class Testing
This tour is designed for students from science, sports medicine and sport performance classes to have their own fitness levels measured. Information can then be used to create class based assignments or projects on student health, fitness, physical activity, etc. On this tour we run all the students through 4-5 tests. Tests might include: sprint test, vertical jump test, beep test, etc... Students would get an individual feedback package that includes an explanation of each test, their results, and a comparison to their class average or age matched normative data.
