Researchers need volunteers to participate in 12-week exercise-training programs

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Researchers from Health P.E.I. and UPEI’s Kinesiology program are seeking participants to take part in a 12-week exercise-training program.

Participants will perform a medically supervised exercise-training program, based on their fitness, skill level, and personal interests.

Participants must be between 40 and 60 years of age, and have a blood pressure above 120/80, or be taking medication to control their blood pressure.

The program runs 12 weeks starting the week of Jan. 8. Volunteers will receive a fitness test the first and last week of the program, separated by 12 weeks of supervised aerobic and strength training.

All exercise will take place in the Patient Centred Research Clinic in UPEI’s Steel Building. Parking is free. No previous experience is necessary.
