Kristie Baillie

Master of Health, Sport and Human Performance

Morrinsville’s Kristie Baillie is studying for a Master of Health, Sport and Human Performance. “This degree offers flexibility around training as an athlete, allowing me the opportunity to gain postgraduate level knowledge in strength and conditioning through an experience-focused 180-point programme,” she says. As part of her masters, Kristie is exploring the impact of high intensity exercise in extreme heat conditions – an area of research she is particularly interested in.

“I’ve had valuable guidance from my lecturers; not only do they provide a high level of expertise through their teaching, but just as importantly, they deliver the course in a way that is engaging, challenging and fun.

“It’s an incredibly fantastic time to be a part of the Health, Sport and Human Performance masters programme,” Kristie says. “There are many exciting opportunities on the horizon, especially for sport science.”
