The College of Applied Sciences and Technology has a long history of serving Muncie and east central Indiana through wellness, nutrition, and other programs. Here is a sampling of the community programs we sponsor.
Physical Education Programs for Adults The Adult Physical Fitness Program is a
comprehensive physical fitness program that helps individuals improve
and maintain their health and functional ability. Under the supervision
of university faculty members certified by the American College of
Sports Medicine, graduate students plan personalized exercise routines
to meet participants' health and fitness goals and supervise
participants during their workouts. Participants pay a nominal
membership fee to take part in the program. To learn more, visit the Adult Physical Fitness Program Web site.
The School of Kinesiology also offers exercise programs for Ball State
faculty, staff, and retirees. The programs focus on aerobic exercise,
strength and flexibility training, and relaxation techniques and are
staffed by physical education and gerontology students.
Motion Analysis Laboratory The Motion Analysis Laboratory offers rehabilitation services and testing to help athletes and others evaluate and enhance their performance. The cornerstone of the rehabilitation services is gait analysis, which evaluates a person's walking patterns and suggests options for improving the gait. The lab also offers several programs to help athletes of all ages and skill levels enhance performance, improve training efficiency, and assess their technique. By working in the lab, graduate students in the biomechanics program learn firsthand about motion and muscular control patterns.
