Spring Interval Training (SIT)

The Fall 2013 semester marked the beginning of a new study examining the effects of sprint interval training in overweight and obese women at the Morrison-Bruce Center.  This study will expand on recent research which indicates that sprint interval training may confer many of the same benefits as moderate-intensity training in significantly less time and may be more enjoyable.  We will be examining at several aspects, including physical fitness, health status (including blood pressure, lipid panel, and blood glucose), psychosocial variables (including perceived effort, physical activity enjoyment, and overall attitudes towards exercise), as well as how active participants remain after the end of the intervention.  This study is a collaboration between the MBC and the Departments of Kinesiology and Health Sciences.
