Ben TheyerlDecember 2, 2010

The Department of Health & Human Development (HHD) at Montana State University (MSU) in Bozeman, MT, is actively seeking applications for graduate study in applied exercise physiology (Masters degree only; Fall 2011). Dr Dan Heil (, a Professor in exercise physiology, specializes in studies of physiological and biomechanical determinants of Nordic skiing performance, as well as the development of models of energy expenditure during sport and work performance.

Our lab has a new oversized treadmill for roller ski testing of Nordic skiers and we are planning some collaborative studies on Nordic skiing with several other research labs. Here is an on-line article recently posted by the MSU Media Services about the lab’s testing of the MSU Nordic Ski Team:

We also have lots of lab testing photos on the Facebook page for the Movement Science / Human Performance Lab (MSL):!/pages/MSU-Movement-Science-Human-Performance-Lab/125387057512054

Ben Theyerl was born into a family now three-generations into nordic ski racing in the US. He grew up skiing for Chippewa Valley Nordic in his native Eau Claire, Wisconsin, before spending four years racing for Colby College in Maine. He currently mixes writing and skiing while based out of Crested Butte, CO, where he coaches the best group of high schoolers one could hope to find.
