Limited time only! Free Supervised Resistance Exercise Training for Ongoing Randomized Controlled Trial. Brett Gordon

I am excited to utilize this platform to communicate my doctoral research project, and provide an opportunity to receive FREE strength training at PESS to the readership of this blog. We in the Exercise Psychology Research Group within the Sport & Exercise Psychology Lab at UL focus on the effects of physical activity
and exercise on mood. We are currently recruiting participants for a randomized controlled trial that aims to examine the effects of a resistance exercise (strength) training intervention.  

Resistance exercise training has well known physical benefits, and recent meta-analytic research from our lab demonstrated that it may also improve their mood.  

This FREE program consists of a three week (twice a week) familiarization period, and the resistance training intervention, comprised of two non-consecutive days per week, supervised sessions, involving two sets of 8-12 repetitions for 8 exercises, for 8 weeks, in accordance with guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine.  

If you would you like to participate in a FREE strength training program, we are recruiting participants based on responses to the below survey link.  The survey investigates how personality and mood are associated with being my physically active/likely to participate in sport.  

Participants should be males or females between the ages of 18-40, and will be asked questions regarding demographics, personality, mood, physical activity, and sport participation, as well as asked to leave their email address if they would like to be contacted to participate in the FREE strength training program. This survey will require approximately 20 minutes to complete.  

If you, or anybody you know, would be interested in this exciting opportunity to receive FREE supervised resistance exercise training, as well as receive knowledge regarding proper lifting technique, and relevant aspects of their mood, attention, sleep, and cognition, please complete this survey, and if you have any further questions in regards to the trial, contact me at
