The purpose of the TigerFit lab is to provide on-going exercise programming and fitness education for the students, faculty and alumni of Auburn University and the communities of East Central Alabama.
The TigerFit health and fitness assessments are conducted as part of a service learning effort in the Department of Kinesiology by James McDonald and his undergraduate and graduate staff, together with local physicians.
Specific aims include:
One of the main reasons to have your health and fitness level measured is to find out where you stand in regards to cardiovascular disease (CVD), which remains the greatest cause of death and disability in the United States. The good news is the age-adjusted death rate due to CVD has decreased by 40 percent throughout the last 30 years. This is due in a large part to the early detection of signs and symptoms of CVD and CVD risk factors.
