Anthony Deldin
  • Dr. Anthony Deldin is currently an Assistant Professor at Loyola University Chicago in the Parkinson’s School of Health Sciences and Public Health. The courses taught by Dr. Deldin are housed in the Exercise Science department and focus on understanding the principles related to increased human performance. Such courses include: Introduction to Exercise Physiology, Advanced Physiology of Exercise and Kinesiology and Biomechanics. In additional to course work, he is the Graduate Program Director for the Master of Science in Exercise Science. Dr. Deldin earned both his Bachelors of Science and Masters of Science in Education with a specialization in Exercise Physiology from Northern Illinois University. Additionally, he was a 4-year letter winner on the NIU Men’s Soccer team. He then went on to attend the University of Pittsburgh where he received his Doctorate in Exercise Physiology. His graduate assistantship was held at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC where he completed his dissertation examining the effects of aerobic versus resistance exercise, without caloric restriction, on hepatic fat as well as total, visceral and abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue in obese adolescent males and females. Dr. Deldin is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with Distinction by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and an EXOS Sports Performance Specialist. He has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, in addition to presenting at multiple national conferences. His current research interests include monitoring external training loads and neuromuscular performance for collegiate athletes, functional testing for return to sport and monitoring pre- and post-season testing variables in Loyola student athletes.
