A little about your host Sam!

Sam began his undergraduate degree and distance running athletic career at The University of Oregon, finishing at Western Colorado University with a degree in Sports and Exercise Science. His passion for mountain sports (skiing, mountain biking, trail running and Nordic skiing) led him to continue at Western to complete his MS in High Altitude Exercise Physiology.

While in graduate school, Sam focused on environmental exercise physiology, sports nutrition, disease and human performance. After graduate school Sam spent time coaching for the University of Idaho Cross Country and Track team and working in a cardiac rehabilitation center. Most recently he was a professor at Colorado Mountain College teaching Human Nutrition, Human Health, Wellness and Performance.

Sam strives for scientific stands based on the philosophy of “evidence-based practice”. Sam’s clients and athletes are provided with training regimens and testing protocols that are optimized to fit the specific needs of the individual. His specific interests as an Exercise Physiologist include: endurance training, environmental physiology, sports nutrition, and biomechanical efficiency.

When Sam is not in the exercise physiology lab, you can find him mountain biking, trail running, touring and Nordic skiing in Big Sky.
