How does exercise affect our bodies? In this film Greg Foot travels to the University of Essex to meet career physiologist Dr Valerie Gladwell to see if he can answer this question. Greg has a look inside the physiology labs and gets to grip with some of the equipment professionals use to measure the effect that exercise has on our bodies. Guinea pig James, an athlete and university of Essex student is put through his paces on the treadmill while Dr Gladwell and her team measure physiological parameters which show them how his body is coping.
