Dr. Coyle directs the Human Performance Laboratory, and his research focuses on the metabolic and cardiovascular factors that limit aerobic exercise performance. Recently, he has investigated the cardio-metabolic effects of prolonged sitting and the amount of exercise needed to counteract the negative health consequences of daily sedentary behavior. Furthermore, he measures maximal neuromuscular power output over a few seconds of maximal cycling as a decline in an athlete's maximal power output is a sign of overtraining. Dr. Coyle also coordinates the graduate program in Sports Science &
Nutrition and a number of these master's students advise the intercollegiate athletic teams at UT.
