Dr. Jeff Zahavich PhD, CEP, ChPC

Clinical Exercise Physiologist

Jeff is a firm believer in the many benefits of regular physical activity and has spent the better part of his adult life advancing his education in the fields of kinesiology (exercise science) and health promotion. He completed his undergraduate training from Dalhousie (BSc Kinesiology, BSc Health Promotion), and graduate degrees from the University of Calgary (MSc Kinesiology) and Dalhousie University (PhD Health). By day he is a Kinesiology Instructor within the School of Health and Human Performance, Faculty of Health at Dalhousie University, and by night, a three-time girl dad who still finds time to sneak in after hour workouts.

Jeff has been offering endurance sport coaching and fitness testing in Halifax since 2013 under the business name Kinesic Sport Lab, and has recently partnered with Cornerstone Naturopathic to provide VO2max metabolic testing in-house. He holds the Clinical Exercise Physiologist (CEP) designation from the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP), and he is a Chartered Professional Coach (ChPC) recognized by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) with professional coaching certifications from Triathlon Canada, Cycling Canada and the Canadian Weightlifting Federation.
