Dr. Michael Brian is a local native of New Hampshire. Like many exercise physiologists before him, we fall in love with the science of human performance. Dr. Brian has since transformed his passion for sport science into helping others gain value in utilizing exercise to benefit overall health throughout life. His biggest motivation is helping others succeed in finding enjoyment in exercise and creating a healthy lifestyle. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity remain significant health threats in the United States and worldwide. Therefore, he is interested in studying the disease process and improving health outcomes in these populations. Dr. Brian’s current research interests focus on the influence of exercise on 24-hour blood pressure regulation, blood glucose regulation, and the impact of adiposity on vascular health in young adulthood.
