Effects of a 30-Day Fitness Challenge on Body Composition and Health Markers in Sedentary Women

It's unusual for any study to have large numbers of participants, yet this study from the US and Canada involved nearly 73000 sedentary women. The women volunteered to participate in a 30 day challenge and results were collated to determine the effectiveness of this initial 30 day exercise program. Supported by Curves International, and using the Curves staff and equipment this study shows significant results over this 30 day period. There are however a few issues I have with this research process.

Research and Reviews

Welcome to my blog. Visit this site regularly to read summaries and updates on current research relating to exercise and fitness. My aim is to provide you with information that you may not normally have access to or be able to read in full. This will have a focus on topics related to my current research but I will also include research updates on other areas that I feel would be valuable to everyone.

Of course I will keep you updated on my own fitness industry research and provide links for you to read more or see pictures and videos of work we are conducting at USC. Feel free to comment and ask questions and I will do my best to answer where I can.
