Research Objective
Examine effects of an exercise video game on exercise behavior. 

Who is eligible?

  • Men and women, ages 18 to 35, who are healthy enough for physical activity can participate.
  • You may not participate if you have any visual impairments that would prevent you from clearly seeing a computer or projected image screen or arm, shoulder, back, or neck physical impairment that would prevent you from completing an abdominal plank exercise.

Study Visits and Compensation
Participants will hold a plank exercise for as long as they feel comfortable (no experience necessary!), wear a heart rate monitor chest strap, have height & weight measured, & complete a survey about their experience. The session will last about one hour.

You will receive $10 after you complete the research session.
