Strategies to Enhance the Experience of Exercise Study

PI: Arielle Gillman

Mentor: Dr. Angela Bryan

Do you need to increase your cardio?

This research study examines strategies people can use to change their experience during cardiovascular exercise!

What you will do: 1 two-hour laboratory session including: survey, fitness test, learning a strategy, and 30-minute supervised exercise session, 2 weeks of exercise on your own while filling out short daily surveys, and 1 survey at the end of the study. The in-person laboratory session will take place at the CU Boulder Center for Innovation and Creativity (1777 Exposition Drive in Boulder).

 Compensation: $10 for the laboratory session, $1 per day for filling out daily surveys (up to $14), and $5 for the follow-up survey.

 Who can be in the study: You should be between the ages of 18 and 40. You should not be doing regular cardiovascular exercise; this study is for people who do not exercise right now. You should be willing to start a cardiovascular exercise program that involves walking, hiking, jogging, or running. You should not have any health problems that prevent you from exercising safely.
