Dr. Jared Coburn was raised in the state of Nebraska, and has had an interest in sport and exercise for as long as he can remember. Shortly after moving to California and graduating from high school, Dr. Coburn earned his BS (1987) and MS (1990) degrees in physical education from CSUF. He then directed physical therapy clinics and fitness and wellness programs, worked as a strength and conditioning coach, and served as chair of the Kinesiology Department at California Baptist University (1997-2001). He and his family then moved back to Nebraska where he earned his PhD in human sciences (exercise physiology) from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (2005). He then returned to CSUF as a full-time, tenure track faculty member. His interest in applying scientific principles to the training of clients and athletes is based largely on his experience as a practitioner. He and his students are particularly interested in studying neuromuscular function during strength, power, and endurance exercises. He has co-authored over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles, books, and book chapters, and over 300 oral and abstract/poster presentations at annual meetings of professional organization, such as the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). His scholarly work has been recognized both these organizations as he is a fellow of ACSM and NSCA.

Interest Area:  
Neuromuscular responses to resistance exercises; ergogenic aids and their effects on strength/power and endurance performance.
