As part of its Translating Research in Exercise Science (TREx) community outreach initiative, the Exercise Science Department is hosting an open house on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Totman Building.
TREx Day activities will feature information on individual fitness levels and how to be more active and the ups and downs of blood pressure. Demonstrations will show how sight and sensation affect one’s stability while standing, measurements of resting metabolic rates, how to assess how active children are and testing of muscular strength. Visitors can also view a computer model of their bicycling motion, listen to the electrical “chatter” of their nerves and experience the biomechanics of a golf swing.
Free pedometers will be given to the first 75 visitors. Kids are welcome.
Free parking is available in Lot 43
Support for TREx Day comes from a campus Public Service Endowment Grant.
