2014 RMIT University research outcomes on the impact of the e.motion21 Beat Fit™ programs
Beat Fit™ Overview
Impact on Cardiovascular Fitness
Across the course of the research project, a statistically significant and important improvement in cardiovascular fitness was observed. This was indicated by an average increase of 23% across the two terms in meters run in the Multi-Stage Fitness Test, commonly referred to as the Beep Test.
When compared to those who completed less than two sessions a week, those who completed two or more Beat Fit sessions a week significantly improved their fitness. This indicates that being able to do 2 or more Beat Fit™ sessions a week is very important to see the desired improvements.
Parents and caregivers found extra fitness benefits in their children following their participation in Beat Fit™, including increased stamina, greater willingness to be active and less tiredness.
Parents and caregivers support Beat Fit™, reporting their children enjoyed the sessions, improved their fitness, and supported good social opportunities and new friendships.
