Kyle Leppert, MA, CSCS is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology within the College of Health Professions at Towson University. Leppert has worked in research and applications of exercise for health and performance for over a decade. As a student of exercise physiology at the University of North Carolina, he studied responses to exercise and environmental stress in healthy populations including trained athletes, as well as cases of chronic disease and cancer. He later worked in clinical exercise testing and programming at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in support of research studies on the effects of exercise and diet in adults with metabolic diseases and sleep disorders.

Leppert has amassed over a decade of work with athletes- as a sports performance coach, a speaker to teams and training groups, and as a coach of youth and high school lacrosse in the Baltimore area. He is a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and continues to work directly with athletes in training. In 2016, he traveled with students to Peru and spoke at an international symposium on topics of long-term athlete development and the role of sport in supporting life-long active health.

Since 2016, Leppert has also served as a leader in the Towson Research Academy for Collaborative Sport Science (TRACS). His responsibilities include coordination of internship and independent study experience, performance feedback for players and coaches, and performance testing logistics for Towson University Athletics. In 2016, he collaborated in research of functional movement assessments among high school athletes which was presented at the National Coaching Conference.
