Get paid to measure your body composition, aerobic capacity, plus six months of free exercise training

By Sarah Cosgrove

A few spots remain open for individuals who are in the Reserves or National Guard — any military branch — to participate in the Army Training at High-Intensity Study.

Research participants will receive six months of exercise training for free. The research project is designed to compare the effectiveness of high-intensity functional training to Army Physical Readiness Training in military personnel for improving body composition, fitness, cardiovascular health and psychosocial outcomes.

As a participant in the Army Training at High-Intensity Study, we are offering the chance to complete an optional Peak Oxygen Consumption treadmill test and or/body composition assessment through a Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry, or DEXA, scan. Completing these tests can earn participants up to $50; $12.50 per optional test completed.

All exercise testing and training will take place at Kansas State University in Manhattan. Participants are eligible for a free month of unlimited classes at K-State CrossFit upon completion of the six-months of exercise training.

Contact Sarah Cosgrove at 480 326-7912 or sasteven@k-state.edu, or Katie Heinrich at 785 532-7771 or kmhphd@k-state.edu if you are interested in participating in the study.

This study has been reviewed by the university's Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 7162.
