Current Studies Needing Participants

The integrative Clinical Cardiorespiratory Physiology Laboratory (iCCP) at the University of British Columbia Okanagan is recruiting for a study

Study Name: The Acute Physiological Response to SUPine Exercise Recovery (SUPER) from High-Intensity Interval Training

Study Objective: We are investigating how the heart responds to different recovery methods between high-intensity interval running exercise.

Participant Details: We are looking to recruit sixteen healthy males between the ages of 18 and 34 who usually participates in recreational physical activity between 75 and 180 minutes each week and have daily access to a smart-device. You are not eligible to participate if you:
· Have a heart, lung or brain condition
· Have diabetes
· Have a muscle or bone condition that limits vigorous running exercise
· Smoke

Study Details: The study will involve seven visits to our lab at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus at the Reichwald Health Sciences Centre. On these visits we will measure your heart rate and fitness and track how your heart rate responds to maximal exercise and high intensity interval exercise in which you recover in different body positions. We will be asking you to measure your heart rate when you wake up each morning on your own smart-device each day during this study. From this study, you will gain information regarding your heart, and nervous system function and will receive information on your fitness level.

Contact Information: If you are interested or would like more information about this study please email John Sasso at and we will contact you with further information and answer any questions or concerns you may have.


Help the Centre reach its goal of securing ongoing extramural funding from federal and provincial agencies, industry, public and private foundations and philanthropists to enhance research programs, laboratory facilities and training opportunities in heart, lung and vascular research.
