by Robinson, Lauren A.

Abstract (Summary)
Terry Herman, PhD, Advisor The purpose of this study was to determine the current knowledge of BGSU SRC patrons regarding exercise equipment and monitoring technology. The main objective of this study was to identify whether or not the patrons that use the facility know how to use the cardio equipment and their heart monitors correctly. To obtain this information, patrons were asked to fill out a survey when entering the Student Recreation Center. 48 patrons completed the survey and their results were tallied using SNAP, a survey program. The results showed that patrons knew how to use the cardio equipment but not the heart monitors located on the machines. They also did not know where to receive information about the machines or the heart monitors. Based on these results the researcher recommended informational packets for the machines and signage to be placed around the cardio area. This thesis is dedicated to Duretta Cobbins iii iv
