Physical Activity Research Study

Looking for a way to keep up with your New Year's Resolution? The Exercise is Medicine movement is recruiting University of Arkansas staff members who presently are not meeting the current physical activity guidelines, but are interested in increasing physical activity.

The participants will either receive bi-weekly motivational counseling sessions or bi-weekly self-motivation materials. The study will last approximately 12 weeks. Participants will have two weeks to complete a pre-survey and schedule/complete a baseline fitness test. Then the intervention will last 8 weeks with an additional two weeks to perform a post intervention survey and fitness test.

The total time commitment of the study will range from approximately 5.5 to 8.5 hours. Participants will be compensated $50 for completing the entire study. Participants must be English-speaking and should not have any limitations preventing them from physical activity. The study will look to start mid-March with post testing ending by early June.

If interested in participating, or have any questions or concerns, please contact: Bryce Daniels, bxd013@uark.edu. If you are interested in completing the survey please click on the following link: Exercise is Medicine.
