We are excited to welcome Dr. Tyler Standifird to the NP Team. Dr. Standifird earned his PhD in Biomechanics and Kinesiology from the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville TN. He is currently a professor at Utah Valley University, instructing classes in Kinesiology and Biomechanics. He has over 10 years of experience collecting and analyzing force and motion data for a variety of human movements. He has an impressive resume of research with 6-refereed publications & 40 scholarly peer reviewed presentations at regional and national conferences.
Tyler is currently doing research related to running, golf, cycling, and squat biomechanics. While at UVU, he has engaged in research with baseball and softball pitchers in addition to work with the cross-country team.
Tyler will be heading the Norton Performance athlete Biomechanics Assessments, gathering more detailed data on each individual athlete. This data will allow us to understand specific deficits in our athletes and the exercise programming that will fix these deficits. Data collected prior to and after a program will ensure that our athletes achieve optimal results from their work with NP.
