OCU Kinesiology Offers Sport Performance Training Program

The Oklahoma City University Department of Kinesiology and Exercise Studies has started a program to train athletes from the OCU and Oklahoma City communities.

The OCU Sport Performance program is open to athletes who are at least 12 years old. It uses the latest technology in testing and training techniques for athletes in virtually every sport and level of competition.

Evaluation services include body composition, lactate threshold, lower body power, movement screenings, gait analysis, general fitness and strength testing. Evaluations include an explanation of testing results and how the results can be used to set training programs and goals.

The department is offering individual and group training sessions with programs specifically designed to meet the needs of the participant(s). The professionals at OCU Sports Performance are also available for team consultations and for implementing and leading team training sessions at OCU’s new Human Performance Center or at off-campus facilities.

Jason Miller, chairman of the Kinesiology and Exercise Studies Department, said the Sport Performance program is designed to assist those who have a strong desire to excel at their preferred sport.

“The OCU Sports Performance program has the equipment and expertise to help individuals and teams reach their full athletic potential,” Miller said.

The department is offering a free consultation session to those who are interested in participating. For information about the program and prices, contact Miller at (405) 208-5648 or jmiller2@okcu.edu.
