Tim Olds
Dr. Olds is a professor at the University of South Australia. After completing a PhD in French Studies at the University of Sydney, Tim went on to study exercise science, receiving a second PhD in 1997. His research interests have been in mathematical modelling of cycling performance, anthropometry, and more recently secular trends in the sleep, fitness, fatness, physical activity and food intake of children and adolescents. He was Project Director for the Australian National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey, and for the ADAPT Project, which used 3D anthropometry to match body types with military aircraft.

Authorities should promote exercise that's fun, not just exhausting, believes Professor Tim Olds, a researcher at the University of South Australia.
While current guidelines state that people should exercise for 30 minutes a day, there's usually an emphasis on exercises that are merely exerting. Professor Olds explained that there should be just as much focus on picking an activity that a person will enjoy.
Professor Olds is conducting a study of over 200 people and recording what activities make them the happiest.
Professor Olds believes that one of the drivers of obesity in Australia is that people can't find the right physical activity that they enjoy and that fits into their lifestyle. Making sure they have fun is crucial for ensuring they keep up the activity and enjoy significant results, he said.
There should also be more of an emphasis on people finding ways to move in daily life, said Professor Olds.
"You don't have to be a marathon runner, but movement is important," Professor Olds said. He added that if people could re-design their lives to be more movement-focused, they can reduce their risk of diabetes, arthritis and a range of other diseases.

Tim Olds, a professor of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia, saw some value in the study, however.
"This is a very interesting line of research, because it would suggest that interventions which protect or increase muscle mass (such as weight training) may be effective in reducing cardiovascular disease even if no loss of body fat occurs," Olds said in a statement.
