Dr. Kenno has been a valued faculty member in the Department of Kinesiology since 1984, teaching all of the undergraduate and graduate exercise physiology courses. Originally interested in basic animal research, he has now switched to a more applied human performance research ranging from working with graduate students on resistive and anaerobic training programs and evaluation protocols, and the Windsor-Essex Cardiac Rehabilitation program, to examining fatigue in working muscle. One of Kinesiology’s most devoted and effective teachers, Dr. Kenno is particularly noted for his thorough and demanding examinations.
