Human Performance Lab
The UAA Human Performance Lab provides a number of health, fitness and performance tests for individuals from the community, UAA employees and UAA students.
The high quality performance testing and detailed reports of results allow clients or client's coaches/trainers to use the data to determine appropriate training. We do not provide coaching services or develop training plans. Testing can provide valuable data on your current fitness level, as well as how effective you are responding to your training plan. By conducting regular tests (depending on your sport and season) you can accurately monitor the results of training adaptations and make adjustments accordingly to maximize your health and performance.
Testing is offered by appointment. Schedule an appointment by clicking the button below or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907.786.4083.Online Scheduling optional hidden text
All testing is completed in the Human Performance Lab in Eugene Short Hall, Room 102 on the main UAA campus. The physical address of Eugene Short Hall is
2601 Providence Dr, Anchorage, AK 99508.
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.
