Dear Albion College Faculty and Staff
You are invited to participate in a research study investigating the effects of moderate to high-intensity exercise on balance, muscle composition and strength, exercise motivation, and sleep patterns in a sedentary population of adults. The study requires that you participate in ninety minutes of pre- and post-testing the week of May 15th and July 3rd. There will also be fifty-minute exercise classes (intervention group) with a certified exercise instructor or a walking group discussing nutrition (control group) that will meet three days a week for six weeks.
To qualify, you must be 30-60 years old, have no current or recent (within the past six months) musculoskeletal injuries, currently participate in less than ninety minutes of exercise a week, and remain on campus for the summer. If you are interested in participating in this study, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Exercise Research Study.”
Thank you for your time!
