Dr. Young assisted with teaching the exercise physiology class for the master’s in physical therapy program. His goal is to educate the public about the lack of scientifically based knowledge behind the many fitness recommendations from magazines, from books, and from advice from fitness trainers.
When not working and trying to change the world, Dr. Young likes to spend time with his family, play an occasional XBOX game, working out, reading research, and going out for fine dining. He’s looking for a job as a food critic for fine restaurants if you know anyone hiring. : )
