Dr. Malone has over 20 years of experience working with females. Beginning in the mid-1990’s he was a Personal Trainer primarily to women who ranged in age from their teens to their 30s and early 40s which has given him a longitudinal perspective on the importance of healthy lifestyle development for young women. Starting in 2007 he began to focus on life coaching college-age women. During this time he has learned a great deal about the adult developmental pathway of females. He founded a nonprofit organization to promote young women’s wellness in 2008. His research interests center around the fitness adherence, optimal nutrition, social support/stress reduction, general wellness behavior and safety of college-age females.
