Kinesiology Clinic Offerings and Current Projects

Kinesiology Clinic offerings and current projects

1- Lunchtime training program

Why not use your lunchtimes to get exercise training in your day?

Under the guidance of Kinesiology students, develop and maintain your cardiovascular health and muscular strength during your lunchtime (10-week program, Mondays and Wednesdays OR Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12:00-13:00 OR 13:00-14:00). After an initial health interview and fitness assessment, you will train twice a week for 8 weeks, after which you will be provided with another fitness assessment to see how much you have improved!

* New Covid 19 online training – Continue to experience the benefits of training from your home or office. We will create training programs for you to complete with little to no equipment that you can do from home. Sessions are run via zoom. We have had great feedback so far from our pilot project. Sessions would aim to target your cardiovascular fitness and help you maintain your strength and endurance while giving you some added motivation.

Cost: 110$
This program is offered in fall, winter and summer semesters.
Maximum of 4 people per class, total of 16 participants for the program per semester.

We film you running from 3 different angles and then sit down and analyze the footage with you, pointing out any potential flaws or biomechanical deficits. From the footage when then give you tips to improve your training and running to potentially diminish your injury risk.
