Healthy recreationally active females wanted for an exercise research study

 The Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education at the University of Toronto is conducting a research studyto determine ifpost-exercise nutrition impacts the health benefits of a single session of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in women. 


Who can participate?  

  • Recreationally active women ages 18-35 years 
  • Do not regularly perform high-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise

What is in it for you? 

  • Body composition (fat and fat-free mass) and fitness assessment
  • An opportunity to make a difference in the scientific community
  • Compensation for your time

What is involved?  

A total of 10 visits to our lab in the Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport.

  • Visit 1 (~1h): Study introduction, consent and health/physical activity questionnaires
  • Visit 2 (~1.5h): Body composition analyses and fitness assessment (VO2peaktest)
  • 2 Metabolic Trials: 3 or 5 days in length with daily visits to the lab (~15min to 3h per visit) 
  • Controlled diet throughout trial days
  • Continuous glucose monitoring 
  • Oral glucose tolerance tests
  • High-intensity interval training (cycling)
  • Blood sampling
