Beyond the Classroom

UNE’s Applied Exercise Science Students Assess Fitness Level of University’s hockey players

Watch Applied Exercise Science students at UNE assess the fitness level of the university’s men’s and women’s hockey teams. By conducting tests on the athletes and collecting data on speed, agility, anaerobic power and endurance, the students in this video show how the Applied Exercise Science Department at UNE takes lessons beyond the classroom and laboratory and onto the court and weight-room floor.

As a student in our advanced research and practice courses in Exercise and Sport Performance you will have the opportunity to further your experience through travel components of the classes. Students in our Environmental Physiology class have recently traveled to Iceland while students in our Altitude Physiology class have traveled to the mountains of Colorado.
