    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

IST – Impact Sports Training Observation

I recently took a trip down to IST (Impact Sports Training) in West Duluth for an assignment in Joe Warpeha’s, Strength Training & Conditioning class. One of his past students runs the facility, which trains athletes and non-athletes from children all the way up to elderly adults. IST is known for training sports teams such as local peewee hockey teams and even local high school teams.

We were asked to go down there and just take note of the types of lifts, clients, questions, thoughts, conversations, etc. that go on in a training facility. For some it may be the first time they’ve experienced being in a training facility. For me it isn’t anything new but it was nice to see all age groups training, many for completely separate reasons (i.e. Metabolic Circuit vs. Olympic Lifts).

I think it is great that we are given the opportunity to get out into the town, make a connection, and gain some experience in the sports performance/training environment. Some professors will say, go out and do these things on your own…Not at St. Scholastica. No, our professors do a wonderful job at helping set up initial connections to get your feet wet and putting you in places where you can succeed. The Exercise Physiology department does a wonderful job at working with you and fulfilling your interests whether you plan to be an OT, PT, EP, or AT. It is a nice feeling knowing you have a solid support system and professors that are doing everything they can to get you the most during your education.
