Exercise Physiology Lab
The Exercise Physiology and Fitness Laboratories comprise approximately a 3000 square foot facility located in Horton Fieldhouse (rooms 309 and 319) at Illinois State University.
Originally designed and built in 1989, the laboratories recently were renovated in 1999. The laboratories are separated by a newly built classroom which provides a location for laboratory based instruction (classroom size for 16 students). Breakout rooms for hands on instruction in the areas of fitness assessment, metabolic testing, body composition, pulmonary function analysis, and blood chemistry comprise the remaining laboratory spaces.
The classroom and laboratories have computers, printers (laser & color printers) and internet access that are available for student usage. The Exercise Physiology laboratory also has office space for the laboratory director (Dale D. Brown, Ph.D.) and staff. Students in exercise physiology and exercise science are encouraged to participate and get involved in on-going laboratory research activities of faculty and students or pursue their own research interests.
They are also encouraged to gain "hands-on" experience by either participating in or helping with the variety of physical assessments (body composition, lung function, oxygen consumption analysis, etc.) that frequently occur throughout each semester.
