Need to increase your cardio? Participate in a research study!

Hello world

Reason for this study: The goal of this research is to help researchers identify strategies people can use to change their experience of cardiovascular exercise.

What you will do: 

  • One laboratory session including: survey, fitness test, learning a strategy and 30-minute supervised exercise session
  • Two weeks of exercise on your own while filling out short daily surveys
  • One survey at the end of the study


  • $10 for the laboratory session
  • $1 per day for filling out daily surveys (up to $14)
  • $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 frequently 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.
