Professor Jamie Timmons has bought several corivals van Lode in 2011 for a research into the effect of the intensity of moving on fitness and health. During this research they used HIT (High Intensity Training). The idea behind this practice is, that a short intensive taining has the same effect to lose weight and to build fitness as long efforts. The Corival is because of its flexibility very suitable for HIT! The broadcast of Horizon: “The truth of exercise” was broadcasted a.o. by the BBC.
