The University of Guelph Human Performance and Health Lab is recruiting overweight males, ages 18-70 years, for a research study investigating the ability of different types of exercise protocols (endurance or sprint training) to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health. The Exercise and Health study is 7 weeks in duration, involving:

  • Two pre-exercise visits: one will be assessing non-invasive markers of cardiovascular health and metabolic responses drinking a high-glucose beverage. The second will involve drinking a high-fat milkshake beverage and providing hourly intravenous blood samples (University of Guelph Human Nutraceutical Research Unit).
  • Exercise 3-5 times per week for 6 weeks on a stationary bike at the University of Guelph: performing either interval exercise (repetitions of 30sec with 2min rest, 3 days/week) or continuous exercise (30-40min, 5 days/week). 
  • Two post-exercise visits similar to the initial visits above.

$100 monetary compensation is provided for completing this study. If you are interested, please contact for more information.  (This study is approved by the University of Guelph Human Research Ethics Board REB#17-08-008).
