Kait Jackson, MHK, CSCS
Director of Biomechanics
Kait Jackson is truly an expert in how the human body moves. Kait understands the unique demands of the athletes she works with having been on the other side as an NCAA Division 1 Indoor Volleyball player and having trained with Beach Volleyball Canada. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and her Master’s Degree in Biomechanics, she set out to be the best at understanding what makes an athlete truly great.
Her extensive research in Sport Performance Analytics using 3D Motion Capture, EMG, and Force Plate technology has given her the tools to design highly specific and effective training programs that reflect the uniqueness of each individual athlete. Her focus is on the kinetic and kinematic variables that impact how each athlete’s hardware (body) and software (neurology) work together to produce optimal performance. There are many aspects of movement that we cannot see with the naked eye – they are hidden under the hood. With the latest technology that we use here at The Lab, Kait is able to peek under that hood and find the inefficient patterns that are hindering performance or leading to injury.
With almost a decade of experience working with youth teams to professional and Olympic athletes, Kait has finely tuned her understanding of what makes an athlete stand out and how to help them uncover their true potential.
