Students from UPEI’s Kinesiology 3430 class are seeking participants to take part in a six-week exercise-training program. Students will create personalized exercise-training programs for each participant, based on their fitness, skill level, and personal interests.

Participants must be between 30 and 65 years of age. The program runs Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 1:30–4:30 pm from the week of October 4 to the week of November 13. Volunteers will undergo a fitness test during the first and last week of the program, separated by four weeks of supervised aerobic and strength training.

All exercise training will take place in the Kinesiology Teaching Lab in UPEI’s Steel Building. Parking is free. No previous experience is necessary.

For more information, or to sign up, contact Dr. Travis Saunders, trsaunders@upei.ca, 902-566-0641.
