We achieve this by conducting research assessing the effectiveness of interventions on directly measured physical activity levels, clinically relevant markers of cardiovascular and metabolic health, and other core variables in real world interventions.
The core aim of the research team is to generate academic publications and conduct research which will contribute to answering fundamental questions related to how to get ‘more people, more active, more often’.
These questions relate as much to economic, social and political factors as to scientific and health factors. Each project undertaken will, when completed, be publishable in a peer-reviewed journal article, constitute the basis of a major policy report/insight document, or produce otherwise strategically relevant data.
Who we are
We are a non-for profit organisation established in 2010. The research team currently consists of six full time members of staff.

The Research Institute aims to bridge the evidence gap between traditional laboratory based ‘exercise is medicine’ research and real world interventions.
