Exercise Adherence and Obesity Prevention Lab – Danielle Wadsworth, Ph.D.
The Exercise Adherence and Obesity Prevention Lab is led by Danielle Wadsworth, Ph.D. The lab investigates physical activity behavior change and psychophysiological research. This research focuses on increasing physical activity participation and adherence through planning theory-based interventions. Many of the studies examine what factors motivate people to exercise and adhere to an exercise regimen over a long period of time. Wadsworth aims to develop techniques that make exercise fun and enjoyable, and therefore, more likely that people will regularly engage in the behaviors.
