Colorado Mesa University’s Monfort Family Human Performance Lab


New lecture series showcases expertise of kinesiology students and faculty

You’ve probably heard of Colorado Mesa University’s Monfort Family Human Performance Lab, but unless you’re a student-athlete or spend a lot of time in the Kinesiology Department, you may be unaware that this state-of-the-art facility is one of the university’s hidden gems. You can learn more about the lab on Dec. 3 during the final fall segment of a new lecture series sponsored by the department and the human performance lab.

The lecture series was organized by the human performance lab’s assistant director, Mike Reeder, PhD, to educate the public on relevant health topics and to showcase the talents and expertise of CMU faculty and the quality of the facility to the community.

“I want to mix the talents and abilities of the students and faculty on campus with those of professionals in the community,” Reeder said.

So far the lecture series and the question and answer sessions with attendees that follow have been a hit with students, faculty and community members. The November segment on sprint interval training brought more than 100 people.

The lecture series will continue into the spring semester. All segments are free and open to the public. The Dec. 3 lecture (“The Monfort Human Performance Lab: What do they do in there?”) is at 6:30pm in the human performance lab, which is located in the Maverick Center.
