30 October 2014

Six cash Prizes up to £250 to be won! We are looking for people who normally exercise less than twice a week to help us in our online study of the effects of motivating strategies on mood and exercise (brisk walking).

If you exercise less than twice a week and are interested in helping us, we will ask you to complete an online questionnaire and set yourself a goal of increasing the amount of brisk walking you do over two weeks. Then we will email you two brief online questionnaires at the end of one and two weeks. 

The first 150 Participants who set a goal of increasing brisk walking and complete the two follow-up questionnaires will be entered into a prize draw to win one of six prizes (1x £250, 2x £75, 1x £50 and 2x £25). 

After we have 150 participants we will close the study, so be brisk!
