Weight Loss and Fitness Research Study Informational Meeting

Minot State University's Department of Teacher Education and Human Performance is seeking women between the ages of 40 to 65 to participate in an upcoming experience to explore an emerging new method of delivery and programming for group exercise. People interested in the study can attend an information session Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall.

"The Transitions and the Circuit Resistance Training studies are two wonderful opportunities for women age 40 to 65 to lose weight, get fit and meet new friends," said Terry Eckmann, physical education professor. WELLBEATS Transition is cutting-edge fitness programming designed by Linda Shelton, a world-renowned leader in the fitness industry. Shelton will come to MSU to train students to teach Transitions.

"The Circuit Training Research is a replication of a study MSU students and I conducted 10 years ago," Eckmann said. "The results of the study were quite impressive. The average weight loss was six pounds, the most lost was 15 pounds." This research project is seeking women age 40 to 60 years of age who have not exercised for three months or exercise sporadically. Women must be 10 pounds over ideal body weight, according to Metropolitan height/weight chart (online) or over 25 percent body fat.

Information and application packets can be picked up at the MSU Post Office, Headquarters Salon, Lee's Hallmark or Bricks Fitness. If individuals are unable to attend the information session, applications can be sent to: Terry Eckmann, TEHP Swain Hall, Minot State University, 500 University Ave W., Minot, N.D. 58707. Applications may also be dropped off at the teacher education office in Swain Hall, second floor. Applications must be completed and submitted by Aug. 29 in order to be considered for the projects. All classes will be held after 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday morning and afternoon. Schedules will be posted once study groups are assigned.
