About

Dr. Bryanton is a "Human Performance Scientist", specializing in biomechanics of human movement as applied to strength and conditioning practices. Her research identifies how muscles contribute during exercise, as well as limiting muscles (i.e. weaknesses) that should be addressed in training. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Alberta as part of the Sensory Motor Research Laboratory.

Megan received her PhD in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa (2016), an MSc in Physical Education and Recreation from the University of Alberta (2011), and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

Her training background includes working with competitive athletes to improve strength and sport specific performance, and physio-mediated personal training to restore muscle function safely, and prevent further injury. Her own previous experience as a nationally competitive powerlifter has further added to Megan's practical understanding of strength training methodologies.
