If you’re in London, Ontario, and meet the demographics please consider taking part. Shawn is someone whose research project I was involved with in its early stages–we had a fun chat about ‘healthism’–and I’m happy to help him out. Londoners, please share this with your networks. I love that someone is paying attention interested in fitness is considering the views of women.
