The Exercise Psychophysiology Laboratory from the Department of Kinesiology at Berry College is recruiting for a new study analyzing the effects of high intensity interval training on clinically relevant outcomes, like walking and cognition, in people with MS. The study is examining the effects of 12 weeks of high-intensity interval training on cardiovascular functioning, walking, cognition, upper arm function, fatigue, and depression symptoms.

Project Description:
Time Period of Recruitment: November 18, 2019 – July 30, 2021
States: Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama
Participants will be asked to come to the Exercise Psychophysioloy lab on Berry College’s campus for training sessions 2 times per week for 12 weeks. Each training session can be separated by as little as 48 hours. We will also ask you to undergo 3 testing sessions so that we can measure any changes that occur after 6 and 12 weeks of training.

Participants must be willing to travel to Berry College’s campus to complete the 3 testing sessions and 2 times per week for 12 weeks for the exercise training sessions.

Ultimately, this research will help us design exercise programs that help people with MS improve physical activity levels through a routine exercise program of HIIT designed to accommodate your physical abilities. Participants in this study will benefit by having an assessment of their physical fitness and by engaging in tailored, adaptive exercise under the supervision of trained exercise leaders.
