Giving Back to Research: Is Your Sport Really You?
Get some neat tools for your fitness career by helping us research the question, “Does your sport match your personality?” We have been studying this topic for a few decades and want to update our understanding. Follow the link below and complete a 10- to 15-minute questionnaire on the seven dimensions of exercise. In return we will send you a review article and template you can use in your practice. The survey is anonymous, and it will help us all know more about the science of fitness. Take the survey here: http://yourfitnesspersonality.com/survey.
