Volunteers needed for walking intervention study

18 April 2007

Are you interested in improving your fitness levels? Sign up for a study in the Department of Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences.

Volunteers are being sought to take part in a study examining the effect of 30 minutes of brisk walking a day per day and a total daily step goal of 10,000 steps on the fitness levels of individuals who do little or no exercise. 

Volunteers aged between 18 and 65, male or female, must be in relatively good health, live in the Bristol area and take part in little or no physical activity. Fifty individuals are needed for the study, which will be conducted over a six-week period.

If you are interested in taking part or learning more, please contact Rónán Doherty at or tel 07724 785711.
