The Applied Exercise Physiology concentration at Teachers College at Columbia University focuses on the study of the physiological effects of acute and chronic exercise, how exercise and physical activity influences health, and on the promotion of physical activity in community, clinical, and public health settings. 


The effects of physical activity and exercise training on physiological processes, neuromuscular and biomechanical function, health, and physical well-being are emphasized. 

Applied Exercise Physiology students can apply their academic work to jobs that involve exercise testing and training, including programs designed to improve health and physical fitness in healthy individuals and in people with or at risk for chronic illness or disability, and in community, clinical, research, and public health settings.
