In a world first, preventing doping in adolescent sport by targeting coaches is the focus of an international research project led by Curtin, and funded by the International Olympic Committee.
Curtin University researchers have found exercisers are more likely to keep exercising if their fitness instructor adopts a positive communication style rather than a ‘no pain, no gain’ approach.
Curtin University research has examined the relationship between men’s body attitudes and gym attendance, finding hidden fears about body fat, rather than a desire to build muscle.
Curtin research has examined the role intention and habit play in getting first-generation university students to participate in physical activity.
Curtin University is partnering with Amana Living on a collaborative research project designed to get older people moving, enhance their wellbeing and improve their quality of life.
