The Center for Physical Activity and Health (CPAH) is dedicated to providing comprehensive fitness testing services to members of the Knoxville and University of Tennessee communities, and to promoting departmental research and general science communication.

To meet these aims, CPAH provides one fellowship to a doctoral student enrolled in the Exercise Physiology program. The student oversees all daily operations, under the advisement of the CPAH director.

Through these efforts, we hope to help adults meet their health and fitness goals, increase public understanding and value in scientific research, and provide graduate students with practical skills in public service and outreach.


Fitness Testing Suspended for Spring 2020

In light of COVID-19, the Center for Physical Activity and Health is suspending all fitness and body composition testing for the remainder of the Spring Semester. If you would like to be added to a wait-list for future testing, or have any questions or concerns, please email our graduate assistant Paula Ferrara at

We apologize for the inconvenience, but feel that these actions are appropriate at this time. Stay healthy!
