Dr. Matt Schubert

Dr. Schubert is an exercise physiologist with interests in energy balance and the use of functional exercise to improve health and disease. His Functional Performance Lab is interested in examining interactions between exercise and diet, and also examining functional training (CrossFit, boot camp, Obstacle Course racing, etc.). He actively collaborates with Drs. Newcomer and Nessler in the Surf Lab and Dr. Richard Armenta on community health research. Recent projects have included examining predictors of obstacle course racing performance; differences in strength and power between vegan and omnivorous athletes; energy expenditure during high-intensity functional training; physiological responses during snowboarding; and if antidepressant use blunts exercise-induced physiological adaptations.
