I am interested in turning short-term healthy habit adoption into long-term healthy habit maintenance.  I believe that the largest area responsible for future gains in health, fitness and performance can be found in countering the psycho-social barriers, or excuses that limit and interrupt individual's desired patterns of participation.  Reducing sedentary lifestyle can be achieved in part by preventing or limiting time spent in inactive relapse.  Developing strategies to counter these excuses is the purpose of EXCUSERCISE.   - Dr. Bruce
