Walk-2-Fit on an Anti-Gravity Treadmill

Walk-2-Fit on an Anti-Gravity Treadmill
We are looking for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 30 for a research study that includes a 12-week, walking program on an anti-gravity treadmill. The 12-week program involves an orientation session and supervised exercise sessions of brisk walking on this machine for up to 30 minutes a day or more, for 3 days a week. We would like that you either maintain this routine of 30 minutes three times per week, or increase it, and we will help with goal setting. Exercise sessions can be scheduled at a convenient time, including mornings, evening and weekends. Research participation is completely private. Participation in this study could be beneficial to you and this could be your gateway to a healthier you!
