Thanks to research conducted by Western faculty and students, there is hope for people known as “non-responders,” who exercise but do not see physical results.

Associate Professors Lance C. Dalleck and Christina Buchanan, Lecturer Ryan Weatherwax, and High Altitude Exercise Physiology master’s student Devan Haney conducted the study, funded by the American Council on Exercise.

Published in the December 2016 edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of Fitness Research, the study found that mixing functional fitness, resistance training and cardio workouts eliminated the non-responder phenomenon.

Not only will these findings help individuals lead healthier lives, it is also just one example of the ways Western students gain hands-on experience and practical knowledge in their fields.
