Steven J. Fleck, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor, Health, Exercise Science and Sport Management. Dr. Fleck's teaching interests revolve around the broad areas of health, fitness and physical conditioning. In particular his teaching interests concern physiological adaptations to strength training as well as other forms of physical conditioning and the application of this information to optimally designing training programs. Several of Dr. Fleck’s classes include unique laboratory experiences coinciding with the material being covered in class.
Steven J. Fleck, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor, Health, Exercise Science and Sport Management. Early in his professional career Dr. Fleck’s research interests centered around physiological adaptations to resistance training in elite athletes. This expanded to include physiological adaptations to strength and other forms of conditioning in the general population. More recently his research interests have evolved to include both of the above as well as physiological adaptations, health implications and quality of life effects of physical conditioning in various disease states. In particular, this last area of research interest includes leukemia, cystic fibrosis, McArdle's disease and hospitalized seniors.
