Clients must be "apparently healthy" and meet the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Risk Stratification criteria of Low Risk for a max test or of Moderate Risk for submax test. A physician's medical clearance may be required in some instances. All clients must complete and submit the following forms prior to their testing day: a health history, medical clearance (if Moderate Risk), and Informed Consent (provided at time of test).
No one with a risk stratification of High Risk will be allowed to be assessed in the Human Performance Lab. We regret not being able to provide the cardiorespiratory testing to this population though they may indicate higher performance capacities than some of lower risk. In all cases we encourage checking with your physician prior to testing and exercise training.
Note: At the start of your appointment we will complete remaining paperwork and briefly review test procedures.
All testing is completed in the Human Performance Lab in Seawolf Sport Complex, Room 206, on the main UAA campus. The physical address of Eugene Short Hall is
2801 Spirit Dr, Anchorage, AK 99508.
