Courses I Teach

  • KINES 3091 - Exercise Physiology
    Movement is a basic human behavior. The primary objective of this course is to examine the physiological basis of human movement. The focus will be on reviewing what exercise physiologists have learned about the diversity of physical activity. Although many physiological responses to activity are predictable, the magnitude and pattern of responses are unique depending on the age, gender, and previous experience of the individual.
  • KINES 6320 - Exercise & Disease
    This class will consider the inter-relationship between disease pathology and exercise participation. Specifically, within each chronic disease covered we will review the prevalence, incidence, healthcare costs, etiology, pathophysiology, complications, management, available evidence associating exercise with the disease, and explore established and potential molecular and physiological mechanisms underpinning these associations.
