The Lab for Exercise Assessment and Performance

The Lab for Exercise Assessment and Performance

Welcome to the L.E.A.P!

The Lab for Exercise Assessment and Performance (LEAP) is a space dedicated to teaching, researching, and testing human exercise physiology. We utilize a combination of standard physiology equipment and state of the art field-testing technologies to teach and better understand exercise demands and human performance across a variety of conditions.

L.E.A.P Equipment

We utilize both standard and novel exercise physiology equipment to provide students with hands on experiential learning through courses & research.

Performance Testing

The L.E.A.P. offers a variety of exercise and performance assessments for EOU students, athletes, employees, and community members.

The L.E.A.P. in Action

The Lab for Exercise Assessment and Performance is maintained by the faculty and students of the Health and Human Performance Program at EOU.

“I absolutely fell in love with my classes and the professors. The professors’ doors were always open willing to help a student succeed. Everyone was so personable! EOU is a tight-knit community with a great teacher-student ratio. I loved how each professor knew my full name, knew where I came from, and what exactly I was pursuing. The campus itself is beautiful during all seasons with gorgeous backyard views of the mountains that Union County has to offer. The La Grande community is very supportive and provides a ‘home’ feeling.”
