Tiger Fit Lab – James McDonald, Ph.D.
The Tiger Fit health and fitness assessments program combines student education in a state-of-the-art fitness clinic with outreach efforts in the School of Kinesiology. The program offers quality health and fitness screenings at an affordable price to the greater Auburn community, while giving students valuable “hands-on” experience in applied exercise technology, exercise physiology, and adult fitness programming. James McDonald, Ph.D., is the director of Tiger Fit.
The program fosters collaborative efforts with departments at Auburn University and with the surrounding medical community to improve prevention strategies for cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, hypertension, and other metabolic diseases. Tiger Fit offers appointments to students, faculty, OLLI members, alumni, and the general public during the academic semesters.
