Our research

BMED research is focused on the behavioural and psychological aspects of physical activity and population health. This laboratory is innovative in that it provides a range of equipment and technology to test new models of physical activity motivation and behaviour, intervention strategies, and health promotion marketing. The research laboratory has a primary focus on physical activity and special populations, including families, youth, and older adults.

  • exercise adherence
  • intervention strategies to promote physical activity
  • social cognitive theories of exercise behaviour change
  • personality and exercise behaviour
  • exercise and quality of life outcome research
