Jared Fletcher

Jared Fletcher PhD,

Assistant Professor

Jared is an Assistant professor in HPED where he currently teaches Human Anatomy and Statistics Research Methods. He obtained his PhD in Applied Muscle Physiology from the University of Calgary where he studied the relationship between tendon mechanics, muscle energetics and whole-bodyenergy cost of running in highly-trained and elite distance runners. This research has allowed for the first time the estimates of skeletal muscle energy cost during running. For the past 10+ years, he has also served as the Sport Physiologist for the Canadian National Para-swimming program, where he has been responsible for testing and monitoring of elite Paralympic swimmers at numerous World Championships and Paralympic Games. He has also developed unique monitoring tools and techniques to optimize training prescription and exercise recovery in elite athletes. As a postdoctoral fellow, Jared
assessed novel ways to assess training-related fatigue from heart rate variability and skeletal muscle force measurements in elite athletes and led health-related research initiatives in Calgary adult hospitals. He has previously consulted with industry-lead research initiatives sponsored by Adidas, TaylorMade and Giant Cycling.
