Loughborough University - From sofas to sports

September 9, 2010

Sports experts have helped create an online tool aimed at inspiring couch potatoes to exercise in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics. Researchers from Loughborough University's School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences were involved in the design of an NHS website that helps people find out which five sports best suit them. The site asks users questions and tests them to assess their sporting preferences and reactions. They are then guided to sport clubs and activities in their areas.
