OCD & Exercise Study

Posted on: August 1st, 2021

The University of Hertfordshire is looking for adults between 18-55 years old who do less than 60 minutes of physical activity a week to take part in their study.  The study is looking at the feasibility of delivering a virtual squat fitness test.  The study involves 3 sessions each taking between 20-30 minutes. The first session will be done via Zoom and you can do it in your own home, then the next two will be randomised and one will be done at home via zoom and one will be done at the Institute of Sports Building at the University of Hertfordshire. On each occasion you will do up to about 30 squats in 45 seconds.

On completion of the study they will give you £20 of Love2Shop vouchers as well as a short report on your results which gives you your fitness levels.

This study is to help develop the research design for exercise studies for groups of people such as those with OCD who would prefer to do exercise from their home.

This study is for anyone and if you are interested in taking part, please email Lindsay Bottoms at: l.bottoms@hert.ac.uk
