Bundaberg residents invited to get fit for research
FOR those who find one-size-fits-all messages about physical activity uninspiring, a team of health promotion experts from across Australia have developed a new physical activity website which delivers individualised health and activity messages.
TaylorActive is based on years of research into what motivates people to exercise.
The easy-to-use program asks participants specific questions about their health and levels of physical activity, and develops an individualised fitness program which is delivered via interactive videos.
TaylorActive is currently being evaluated and researchers are calling for participants in the community to help them test the effectiveness of online, visual, individualised activity programs.
Anyone who is over 18, healthy and not currently regularly exercising can take part. To learn more and to sign up for free, visit www.tayloractive.org.au .
TaylorActive has been developed by researchers at CQUniversity, the University of Newcastle, the University of Alberta and the University of Adelaide and has been funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
