Exercise And Sport Science Laboratory

The IHP/ISSN Exercise and Sport Science Laboratory is a very dynamic environment analyzing the human potential in athletes and other exercisers alike.  The laboratory houses many “elite” athlete studies including, but not limited to the NFL, NHL, UFC, and NCAA.  This environment created is very educational and collaborative between faculty and students alike. 

The Laboratory is a 2,400 sq. ft. state-of-the art, facility dedicated to enhancing the preparation and education of exercise and sports science students.  The laboratory has two primary uses: (1) preparation for clinical assessments (2) faculty and students conducting applied sport science research or community service projects.

We've been voted a Top 10 Gym in the nation for 11 years running, and we're right in your back yard. 

There's a reason many of our clients travel from as far as Miami and Jupiter, and even from out of state and even out of the country (as many of our elite athletes do); our training is the best in the business.

Feel free to peruse our reviews on Google, Yelp, Facebook and Wellness Living, and if you want to come experience performance coaching for yourself, get your FREE assessment and your first training session FREE as well.
